BREAKING: Alan Futerfas Intervenes For Trump ORGANIZATION In Michael Cohen Search Warrants Matter (READ ORDER)

The Trump Organization has stepped into the legal wrangling over the documents seized by the FBI in the Michael Cohen search warrants. Well-known criminal defense attorney Alan Futerfas will represent the company.

When Michael Cohen divulged his three legal clients on Monday, he mentioned President Donald Trump individually, and the President has already been involved in the legal matter in front of U.S. District Court Judge Kimba Wood. This new intervention likely indicates spreading concern over what the seized documents contain, and that their may be some legal/business dealings involved. Cohen used to work as part of the Trump Organization, but told the court he left in January 2017 (when Trump was sworn in).

Futerfas also has been representing Donald Trump, Jr. in matters related to Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of the Trump campaign and presidency. He has long been a "sought-after defense lawyer for accused mobsters," according to a Washington Post profile.

Somewhat interestingly, Futerfas only filed notice that he might want to intervene at some future time. Judge Wood simply considered it to be a motion and brought him into the case. No future motion necessary.
