Mr. Cohen is the personal attorney of President Trump. Questions have since arisen as to whether there has been a violation of the attorney-client privilege in this case.

What is a subpoena?
A subpoena is an action or a document that requires an individual to appear as a witness or to produce evidence to the court.
Subpoenas are issued in both civil and criminal matters. In a civil proceeding, the parties to the case are usually individuals and/or businesses who are engaged in a lawsuit. In criminal cases, the parties are the state and a person or persons charged with committing a crime. The subpoena is issued to someone who is not a party to the case, but who can give valuable testimony in some form.
