Trumpís allies worry that federal investigators may have seized recordings made by his attorney..

President Trumpís personal attorney Michael D. Cohen sometimes taped conversations with associates, according to three people familiar with his practice, and allies of the president are worried that the recordings were seized by federal investigators in a raid of Cohenís office and residences this week.

Cohen, who served for a decade as a lawyer at the Trump Organization and is a close confidant of Trump, was known to store the conversations using digital files and then replay them for colleagues, according to people who have interacted with him.

ďWe heard he had some proclivity to make tapes,Ē said one Trump adviser, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the ongoing investigation. ďNow we are wondering, who did he tape? Did he store those someplace where they were actually seized? Did they find his recordings?Ē

Cohen did not respond to requests for comment. Stephen Ryan, an attorney for Cohen, declined to comment. A White House spokeswoman referred a request for comment to Cohen and his attorney.

On Monday, FBI agents seized Cohenís computers and phones as they executed a search warrant that sought, among other records, all communications between the lawyer and Trump and campaign aides about ďpotential sources of negative publicityĒ in the lead-up to the 2016 election, The Washington Post reported.
