USA prosecutors pull encrypted messages from phones seized in Cohen raids

Prosecutors from the US Attorney's Office for the Southern District of NY said in the filing that they conferred with Cohen's lawyers and that the parties jointly proposed a June 25 deadline for Cohen's team to review the newly produced documents for privilege designations.

The prosecutors also said they had reconstructed 16 pages from the contents of a shredding machine taken during raids on Cohen's home, office and hotel room in April.

The FBI has also obtained the contents of encrypted messaging apps. Cohen is now under a criminal investigation for his business dealings with foreign companies. The second of Cohen's two seized Blackberries remains uncracked, they added.

After documents were released by Stormy Daniels's lawyer allegedly linking Trump's personal lawyer Michael Cohen to a Russian oligarch, many are saying the cases of the porn star and Russian election meddling are converging.

If Cohen's team can't finish reviewing the remaining documents to make privilege designations by the deadline, Wood might turn the rest over to a "taint team" of government prosecutors to finish the review, she said.

He wrote that Times reporters were 'going out of their way to destroy Michael Cohen and his relationship with me in the hope that he will "flip"'.

Right now, the documents obtained by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in the raids are the focus of Cohen's case. At a May 30 court hearing, U.S. District Judge Kimba Wood gave Cohen's and Trump's lawyers until Friday to finish reviewing the documents they had received from prosecutors.

'I'm not anxious because I did nothing wrong, ' he said. He said the request for a restraining order is part of a long pattern by Trump of trying to infringe the free-speech rights of people who challenge him. "I don't do anything wrong".
