Attorney’s for Steve Cohen say feds seized devices that should have us all concerned

Cohen attorneys attempt to limit what the FBI could do with all the seized materials from the offices, home, and hotel of President Trump’s personal attorney. U.S. District Judge Kimbra Wood denied the petition and said how much she trusts the FBI’s impartiality. Has she not been keeping up with current events? Cohen’s attorneys have stated that the FBI seize materials that were not covered under the warrant.
