NEW YORK (AP) - The special master helping to decide what materials seized from President Donald Trump's personal lawyer are protected by attorney-client privilege says she hopes to know soon when the process can be completed.

Barbara Jones, a former federal judge, said in court papers filed Friday that a large amount of material from the April 9 raid has already been turned over to lawyers for attorney Michael Cohen. Those materials include eight boxes of hard-copy documents and the contents of telephones and iPads.

She said lawyers for Cohen, as well as Trump and the Trump Organization, will begin Monday to provide her with their first set of materials they believe are subject to the privilege.

Prosecutors say the raids occurred as part of a probe of possible fraud.
