TPM: President Donald Trump is demanding the chance to review his files seized by federal investigators from his longtime fixer, Michael Cohen, to assess which are protected by attorney-client privilege, arguing that DOJ prosecutors cannot fairly make that determination.

Trump’s demands came in a letter filed late Sunday evening in federal court in Manhattan, where U.S. District Judge Kimba Wood has scheduled a hearing Monday to determine who gets to go through the seized records first. Prosecutors have said that a federal grand jury has been investigating Cohen for months. He has not been charged with any crimes.

Trump’s lawyers asked that he and Cohen receive a copy of the materials obtained in last week’s raids so they can give them a first pass for exchanges that may be privileged. A so-called “taint team” of DOJ attorneys uninvolved in the case would be “plainly inadequate” and fail to “zealously protect the President’s privilege,” Trump attorney Joanna Hendon wrote in the letter addressed to Wood.

You would demand the same thing, if you were in his situation. Blatent fishing for a crime. Investigating a person, not a crime. Justice is dead (along with journalism).

Let those guys with the dye all over their faces, masks, guns, stolen car and bag of money go, it would be blatant fishing to suggest they robbed the bank down the street....geez..

Yes someday I will wake up and decide to pursue a life of crime. You are flailing and have run out of arguments and legitimate so you have to try and get personal. Lame

Mueller's office referred the Cohen situation out of his office; he had a responsibility to do if there was some evidence of a crime.

Maybe you should stop posting here and learn how cases are referred in terms of possible criminal violations.  In other words, stop watching Cohen's client Sean Hannity.

Name a single other situation where you would approve of a criminal suspect being able to remove evidence.
