Michael Cohen under fed investigation for months

President Donald Trump’s longtime personal attorney and fixer, Michael Cohen, is “under criminal investigation,” the Justice Department said in a court filing on Friday.

It’s the first peek at the investigation of Cohen after a raid on his offices and home Monday by FBI agents. Trump called the raid an “attack on our country in a true sense” and has reportedly got the president stewing again about firing Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who signed off on the raid, and special counsel Robert Mueller, who made a referral to prosecutors in Manhattan.

Cohen has been the subject of a “months-long investigation” into “acts of concealment” and “fraud” as part of an “ongoing grand jury investigation,” the filing said. Prosecutors obtained search warrants on multiple email accounts maintained by Cohen before Monday’s raid, they said.

The filing was submitted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York in response to a motion by Cohen earlier Friday that asked a federal judge to block the Justice Department’s access to documents seized in the raid until he reviews them to determine what might be protected by attorney-client privilege.
