A judge evaluating the items seized by FBI agents in an April raid of former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen's home and office has released more than 883,000 items to prosecutors — for a total of more than 2 million pieces of evidence.

Special Master Barbara Jones, named by U.S. District Court Judge Kimba Wood in April to supervise the effort, said Friday that the latest 883,634 items "were not designated privileged, partially privileged or highly personal," The New York Daily News reported Saturday.

Jones, a former federal district court judge in Manhattan, said her "review of the remaining items is ongoing."

FBI agents, armed with search warrants based in part on information from Russia special counsel Robert Mueller's investigators, seized documents, cellular telephones and other devices in the April 9 raid on Cohen's home, office and a Manhattan hotel room where he was staying.

Cohen, 51, is under investigation for possible campaign finance law violations regarding a $130,000 payment to adult-film star Stormy Daniels over an alleged affair with President Donald Trump 12 years ago.

Federal prosecutors also are probing Cohen for possible bank and wire fraud issues in his business dealings, the Daily News reported.

Cohen has denied the allegations and has not been charged.

Earlier this month, Jones released 1,310,365 Cohen items to prosecutors after she determined they were not covered by attorney-client privilege, according to the report.
