New details are emerging about the raid on President Trump's personal attorney Michael Cohen's homes and office.

People familiar with the investigation have said the searches sought bank records, records on Cohen's dealing in the taxi industry, Cohen's communications with the Trump campaign, and information on payments made in 2016 to a former Playboy model, Karen McDougal, and Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford.

In a footnote, the prosecutors wrote that while the investigation was referred to prosecutors in NY by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, it was proceeding independently.

Cohen has been referred to at different times as Trump's fixer, "pit bull", and consigliere.

Trump has denied relationships with both Daniels and McDougal. Back in October, a full 52 percent believed "Mueller's investigation is an honest attempt to determine criminal wrongdoing".

Ordinarily, documents or communications seized from a lawyer by FBI agents would be reviewed by a team of Justice Department lawyers not directly involved in the investigation to determine which documents were relevant to the probe, and which should be off-limits to investigators because of attorney-client privilege.

The Cohen attorneys also want to see which, if any, of the documents might be excluded due to attorney-client privilege.

But news of the Cohen raid threw him over the edge. He expounded on the raid on Wednesday morning, arguing that accomplishments by the Trump administration were ongoing despite "fake news".

In addition to facing legal scrutiny for possible bank fraud and campaign finance violations, Cohen is a subject of interest in at least four investigative threads related to Trump, including some within the Russian Federation probe.

President Donald 's personal attorney is trying to prevent the government from using materials it found in a search of his office and residence this week.

Trump, who in the last month has escalated his attacks on Robert Mueller's investigation, said it was a "disgrace" that the "broke into" his lawyer's office. Cohen's attorney has said the search was carried out on behalf of the United States attorney's office in Manhattan in part because of a referral from special counsel Robert Mueller. Prosecutors can also obtain privileged communications between an attorney and client if they have evidence those interactions further a crime or fraud.
