Federal prosecutors may soon get to review material that Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s former lawyer, tried to ensure no one would ever see.

Investigators have restored 16 pages of documents found in Cohen’s shredder and recovered 731 pages of messages sent on encrypted platforms, including WhatsApp and Signal. The material is the most recent to be produced to Cohen’s legal team out of more than 3.7 million items seized in an FBI search of his home, hotel room and office in April.
