The judge heard from a brand new attorney for Trump Hendon, that said the president needed "an attention&rdquo".

Wood said the intervention of a court or special master in the process was not unprecedented, citing the prosecution of Lynne Stewart, a radical Manhattan lawyer who was charged with smuggling communications out of prison for one of her clients.

In addition to searching Cohen's office and hotel room, prosecutors also obtained warrants to seize material from his cellphones, tablet, laptop and a safe-deposit box, according to people briefed on the warrants.

Investigators have also been looking into a blueprint of tax evasion, fraud, money laundering as well as other possible offenses in Cohen's agreements, for example his work to Trump plus several true estate trades the origin mentioned. The filter team is working from a list of individuals and companies they've compiled regarding people who aren't Cohen's legal clients.

"There could be a whole host of documents relating to that agreement, the payment, what the president knew, when he knew it, and we're hopefully going to find out exactly what's in the documents", Avenatti said. "... He is the President of the United States".

Cohen has not commented to ABC News about the criminal investigation. Daniels opposes the request; her response to Friday evening's request is due by 6 p.m. PT Monday. He argued in a court filing on Friday that the seized materials must be reviewed by his attorneys to determine which of them should remain protected by attorney-client privilege.

"His attorney-client privilege is no stronger than any other person who seeks legal advice", McCay said.

Cohen's tumultuous week began with federal investigators raiding his home and office on Monday.

The search warrants against Cohen sought all documents related to Cohen's efforts to suppress negative publicity during the election, according to the New York Times.
