A retired federal judge in charge of reviewing documents seized from President Donald Trump's lawyer Michael Cohen as part of a criminal probe billed more than $47,000 for just six days of work, according to a court filing. Barbara Jones, who has been appointed as special master for a review of evidence seized from Cohen, submitted that eye-popping bill Tuesday, a day before Cohen is due to appear in US District Court in Manhattan for a hearing.
