Little attorney-client privilege seen in Trump lawyer probe

An official overseeing the protection of attorney-client privilege after New York raids targeting President Donald Trump's personal lawyer says a small fraction of 1 percent of the first batch of items to be analyzed is subject to the privilege.

Court-appointed special master Barbara Jones said in a report Monday the analysis so far covers eight boxes of hard documents, two phones and an iPad. More than 15 electronic devices were seized.

The report was submitted to U.S. District Judge Kimba Wood, who's presiding over a court action brought by attorney Michael Cohen after April 9 raids on his home and office. Prosecutors say the raids were part of a criminal probe involving Cohen's business interests.

The analysis was carried out by Jones and lawyers for Cohen, Trump and the Trump Organization.
