Special Master Appointed in Trump Lawyer Michael Cohen’s Case

(From BBC News)

A New York federal judge has appointed an independent official in a criminal inquiry against US President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen.

The so-called special master, an independent court-appointed official, was named as ex-judge Barbara Jones.

She will review documents seized from Mr Cohen by the FBI to determine if they include confidential communications with his legal clients.

It comes as Mr Trump distanced himself from his long-time lawyer.
