Just days after the FBI's unnannounced Monday raid on President Trump's personal attorney Michael Cohen's home, office and hotel room, a federal court in NY has scheduled a hearing in the matter, Fox News has learned. The raid on Cohen was not carried out by special counsel Robert Mueller's team. They claim it's protected by attorney-client privilege.

Whether Cohen was recording conversations in his Trump Tower office was a source of concern to some Trump associates during the campaign, two former Trump campaign officials said. They spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the confidential details.

Federal prosecutors say in a court filing that the criminal probe that led them to raid the offices of Donald Trump's personal lawyer this week is focused on his "personal business dealings".

Attorneys for Trump lawyer Michael Cohen want the court to order prosecutors to temporarily halt an examination of the material that was seized. Khuzami, a former head of enforcement at the Securities and Exchange Commission, only joined the U.S. Attorney's office in January after he was brought in by Berman, who himself is still waiting to see if Trump will nominate him to have the job permanently.

In the filing with a court in NY, prosecutors blacked out a section describing what crime they believe Trump attorney Michael Cohen has committed.

They also downplayed the scope of potential privilege, saying they had before Monday secretly searched multiple email accounts belonging to Cohen, and which they said indicated that Cohen "is in fact performing little to no legal work".

Federal agents seized records on a variety of subjects in the raid on Monday, including payments that were made in 2016 to women who might have damaging information about Trump.

These could include claims by Stormy Daniels, the adult film star who claimed to have had a sexual encounter with Trump in 2006.

Trump, who in the last month has escalated his attacks on Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation, said it was a "disgrace" that the FBI "broke into" his lawyer's office.

The hearing, set for 10:30 a.m. Friday, will relate to the search warrant executed this week to obtain various documents in Cohen's possession.

Several media organizations, including The New York Times and The Washington Post, also reported, citing unidentified sources, that the warrant also authorized agents to seize records related to the "Access Hollywood" tape, on which Trump was recorded making comments about kissing and groping women. He did not disclose the reason for the court proceeding.

With respect to the payment to Ms. Daniels, Cohen has said that he paid the money out of his own pocket out of friendship to the President - which he characterized as a "private transaction" - without Trump's knowledge.
