Of the 300000 documents seized in the raid on Michael Cohen, only 7 were found to be subject to attorney-client privilege related to Cohen being an attorney. So, while Trump has characterized Cohen as his “personal attorney”, the overwhelming majority of the work that Cohen performed was not in the capacity of being a lawyer.

It is clear from this, if it were not clear already, that Cohen is in very deep legal trouble. The question then is what material in the documents implicates Trump and others (or whether Cohen will testify against him).

In fact, 149 documents were found to be subject to attorney-client privilege related to Cohen being a client of an outside attorney. So Cohen has been much more a client of another lawyer than a lawyer himself.
