Judge orders release of Michael Cohen search warrant materials – Washington Examiner

A federal judge has ordered redacted copies of the search warrant materials from the FBI’s raid of former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen’s home and office last spring be made public.

The documents will be placed on the docket Tuesday, according to a brief order by U.S. District Court Judge William Pauley III.

Included in the approved redactions are Cohen’s phone numbers, apartment number, and safety deposit box number.

The materials were obtained as part of an FBI raid of Cohen’s New York City home, office, and safety deposit box last April.

Cohen pleaded guilty in August to tax and bank fraud, and to violating campaign finance law by arranging payments to silence women alleging affairs with President Trump. In November, he pleaded guilty to lying to Congress about efforts to open a Trump Tower in Moscow.

Cohen was sentenced to three years in prison, and he’s due to start that sentence in May.
