Hearing related to Federal Bureau of Investigation raid at Trump lawyer's office is set

Sources: Real Target of FBI Raid Revealed

A lawyer for President Donald Trump sought in court on Friday to stop US prosecutors from deciding what materials seized from his personal attorney can be used in a probe that began with a referral by investigators looking into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

Mr. Cohen, you said you're not anxious at all?

"I have never been to Prague", Cohen told The Post Saturday as he left the Loews Regency Hotel on Park Avenue.

The raid on Cohen, Trump's longtime personal attorney and fixer, has rattled the president; any investigation into Cohen pulls the FBI directly into Trump's inner circle. Sources who've seen the warrants say it appeared to them that the real target of the raids was President Trump.

CBS News confirms the search warrant allowed authorities to look for records concerning the release of the 2005 Access Hollywood tape in which Mr. Trump was heard making vulgar comments about women. Among those recordings: conservations between Cohen and an attorney for two women who both received hush money to hide their alleged affairs with Donald Trump.

Confirmation of the visit, in the face of Cohen's repeated denials, would be a significant development in the Mueller investigation's attempt to corroborate allegations that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government during the 2016 campaign.
