Prosecutor Thomas McKay told a judge that investigators would turn over the “remainder of the phones seized” on Friday, adding that they have “about a dozen” remaining, The New York Post reported.

McKay said agents have already turned over material from an iPad and four phones, according to the report. 


Investigators are reportedly probing Cohen's business dealings in addition to his $130,000 payment to adult-film star Stormy Daniels shortly before the 2016 election, which she says was part of an effort to keep her from speaking about her past alleged affair with Trump.

The FBI searched Cohen's office, hotel room, house and safe deposit accounts earlier this month, with agents reportedly taking documents related to Cohen's work with Trump. 

Cohen on Wednesday asserted his Fifth Amendment rights in a lawsuit filed against him by Daniels, who is claiming defamation against the Trump lawyer.

Trump sought to downplay Cohen's work for him on Thursday, saying the lawyer did a "tiny fraction" of his overall legal work.

“This has nothing to do with me,” Trump said during a telephone interview with “Fox & Friends." “I’m not involved and I’ve been told I’m not involved.”
