NEW YORK - Attorneys for President Donald Trump's longtime lawyer Michael Cohen appeared in a Manhattan courtroom Friday to try to block access to some of his records seized by federal authorities.
They were taken earlier this week as FBI agents raided his offices and hotel room.
While in court, Cohen's lawyers argued attorney client privilege.
Also on hand was President Trump's new attorney Joanna Hendon.
Among the records in question, it's believed there is documentation regarding payments made to adult film actress Stormy Daniels, who claims she had an affair with the president in 2006.
"Michael Cohen was his long time attorney and effectively, probably knows where all the bodies are buried as they say and I think that in the event that Michael Cohen is charged that that could pose significant and very serious problems for the President of United States," said Daniels' attorney, Michael Avenatti.
It's not known when the judge might rule on whether to seal any or all of the records taken from Cohen.
