  Stormy Daniels: Trump's lawyer believes he’s above the law © Provided by The Hill Federal agents raided Cohen's office, home and hotel room last week and reportedly seized financial documents, communications between Cohen and Trump and materials related to payments Cohen made to two women, including Daniels, who alleged they had an affair with Trump more than a decade ago.

Cohen appeared in court on Monday, where his lawyers argued that his legal team or a court-appointed attorney should be able to review the seized material before federal investigators, in order to determine whether the documents are protected under attorney-client privilege.

Daniels attended Monday's hearing.

Cohen has admitted that he paid Daniels $130,000 days before the 2016 election. Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, claims it was part of a nondisclosure agreement about her alleged affair with Trump.

She has since filed a defamation lawsuit against Cohen, and is arguing the nondisclosure agreement is void because Trump did not sign it.
