Michael Cohen probe starter earlier than raid

Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office obtained search warrants to read Michael Cohen’s emails almost a year before the former fixer for President Trump was raided by the FBI, according to court documents unsealed Tuesday.

Beginning in July 2017, FBI agents working for Mueller sought and obtained three warrants to search Cohen’s communications. The request came two months and a day to Mueller’s appointment as leader of the Trump-Russia investigation, following Trump’s firing of FBI director James Comey.

After the emails were reviewed, Mueller’s office referred information to federal prosecutors in the Southern District of New York in February 2018. Two months later, SDNY prosecutors executed search warrants on Cohen’s residence, hotel room, cell phones, computers and safe-deposit box. Redacted versions of the warrants were unsealed on Tuesday as the result of media requests to see the materials.
