While Trump has dismissed the Cohen raid as part of a "witch hunt" perpetrated by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, court filings last week revealed that USA attorneys in Manhattan have been investigating him for months, and a grand jury has been hearing evidence in the case.
In response, prosecutors filed a memo explaining that they took great pains to avoid violating the attorney-client privilege in the case and had been investigating Cohen for months for a range of possible crimes.
Prosecutors contend that Cohen was "performing little to no legal work" for Trump. His lawyers are asking that their team be able to review evidence in the case for documents that could fall under attorney-client privilege.
The raid sought information on a $130,000 payment made to porn actress Stormy Daniels, who alleges she had sex with Trump in 2006.
The raid on Cohen's home and office came as special counsel Robert Mueller's probe intensifies its focus on the president's inner circle. The raid came after the office of the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of NY sought and obtained a search warrant.

It began with an appearance by porn actress Stormy Daniels, who was swarmed by photographers and almost fell as she was hustled into the courthouse, a scene that captured the sensational atmosphere around a legal fight involving the president and an FBI investigation into his personal attorney. She has ordered Cohen to be present in person, and a lawyer for Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, has also said she may be present. Daniels, who has been talking openly about what she says was her liaison with Trump, is suing to get out of the agreement.
He said many of those client files would be irrelevant to the subject of the search warrant, but complained that the government vacuumed up materials so indiscriminately that he wasn't even sure what they had.
Donald Trump's longtime attorney Michael Cohen is set to appear in federal court on Monday afternoon as he and the president are fighting to be able to review documents seized last week by federal agents before prosecutors do.
Mr. Trump's attorneys assert that the president is the holder of privilege, and that his privilege is in jeopardy.
Dysard and Reed Keefe - argue that they should be allowed to do so to protect attorney-client privilege between Trump and Cohen, who is under investigation for "criminal conduct" related to his business dealings.
They acknowledged that the investigation was referred by special counsel Robert Mueller, who is looking into Russian interference in the 2016 USA presidential election, but was being conducted by the US attorney's office in Manhattan.
