Cohen has been accused of making an in-kind contribution to Trump's campaign by paying Clifford with his own money in order to benefit the president's run for office.
Investigators were also reportedly seeking records of discussions about the infamous "Access Hollywood" tape released during the 2016 presidential campaign.
