However, "you never say never" on a possible interview, the person cautioned, adding Trump's legal team remains "in frequent contact" with Mueller's investigators on other matters in the Russian Federation probe.

President Trump's longtime personal attorney, Michael Cohen, was known to record conversations with his clients and associates, stoking fear among the president's allies that digital audio files were seized in the FBI's raid of Cohen's offices and residences earlier this week.

Now, however, Mueller's team might be able to end the probe and provide a report to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein "more quickly", since the prospect of interviewing Trump has dimmed, NBC reported.

Cohen is seeking a temporary restraining order regarding searches of Cohen's home and office by Federal Bureau of Investigation agents on Monday, a Justice Department spokesman said earlier on Friday.

"We have every reason to believe that some of the documents seized relate to my client", he said.

In a footnote, the prosecutors wrote that while the investigation was referred to prosecutors in NY by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, it was proceeding independently.

On Monday, Mr Cohen's attorney Stephen Ryan called the Federal Bureau of Investigation searches "completely inappropriate and unnecessary".

Daniels has publicly stated the payment was hush money to insure her silence about a 2006 affair with Trump.
