Donald Trump has hired a new personal attorney who appeared in court Friday to try to stop the FBI and Department of Justice using material seized in a raid on the president's long-time lawyer.
Joanna Hendon appeared at federal court in Manhattan to demand that a judge stop the government from using materials the FBI seized in a search of Michael Cohen's office and residence this week saying it is 'privileged'.
The hearing in front of U.S. District Judge Kimba Wood was initially a bid by Cohen himself to get a temporary restraining order in the wake of the judicial warrant that authorized the search.
But unexpectedly Hendon appeared at the hearing to say she represented Trump and that she also wanted the FBI and DoJ barred from looking at the material while the case was litigated.
