Prosecutors said the raid on Cohen's office was the result of a "months-long investigation" into Trump's personal lawyer, and that the crimes largely relate to Cohen's "own business dealings".
Trump's newly enlisted lawyers from the firm Spears & Imes in NY, who stepped into the case Friday, largely support the same stance as the President's longtime personal attorney, Cohen, who is asking a judge to prevent federal investigators from using information seized without his review.
The letter requested the court provide a copy of all seized documents to Trump and allow him to assert privilege over his chosen documents so they may not be disclosed. Trump has regularly accused top Justice Department officials of working to undermine him, and his lawyers essentially argue that the government's taint team can't be trusted.
Prosecutors from the Manhattan U.S. attorney's office meant to use a separate "taint team" to review the seized evidence for material that should be protected under attorney-client privilege, while turning over anything relevant to the investigators.
The justice department has "reason to believe that Cohen has exceedingly few clients and a low volume of potentially privileged communications", McKay wrote.
Prosecutor Thomas McKay said during the hearing that Cohen and Trump created the media spectacle - only to "turn around and cite that media attention as the basis for their requested relief". It was for the investigation that the US attorney in NY argued they were seized.
Mr. Cohen came under the inquiry of special counsel Robert Mueller after the lawyer's payment of $130,000 to porn star Stormy Daniels was revealed through the investigation into the president's campaign.

Daniels' attorney said his client plans to attend Cohen's court hearing.
Prosecutors suggested in their filing that while Cohen "holds himself out as a practicing attorney", he is actually exaggerating the extent of his work in an attempt to cast a wide net of attorney-client privilege over the records seized by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
They said that Cohen had at least 10 clients in 2017 and 2018, and that he did "traditional legal tasks" for three of them, including Trump, Republican fundraiser Elliott Broidy and a third who asked not to be named.
Trump's attorneys filed papers on Sunday that would temporarily keep the Justice Department from reviewing the materials gained from an April 9 raid of Cohen's home and office. Mueller's team recently told Trump's lawyers that he is a subject of the investigation, but not a criminal target.
Cohen, as a lawyer, has represented a group of people, including President Trump.
A judge considering how to handle records seized in an Federal Bureau of Investigation raid on President Donald Trump's personal attorney wrapped up a hearing into the matter Monday without making a final decision.
"It nearly goes without saying, unfortunately", Harrison wrote, "that none of Mr. Cohen's clients want to be associated with the government raid on his home and law office, or want to be affiliated in any way with the proceedings here and the attendant media coverage". All lawyers are deflated and concerned!'
