FBI agents raided the longtime Trump lawyer's home and office in April as part of the probe, seizing documents that included business records and communications between Cohen and Trump.

A federal judge ruled last week that Cohen's lawyers must publicly file any challenges made against a special master's decision on evidence taken during the raid. Of the hundreds of thousands of materials seized, only 162 of the documents have been declared to have attorney-client protection.

Some of the documents were reportedly linked to a $130,000 payment made by Cohen to Daniels just days before the 2016 presidential election. The payment was part of a nondisclosure agreement meant to keep Daniels quiet about her alleged affair with Trump in 2006.
