Redacted copies of the search warrant materials from the FBI's raid of former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen's home has been ordered by a federal judge, according to reports.

The released documents will be put on the docket Tuesday, U.S. District Court Judge William Pauley III's brief order said.

The approved redactions will include Cohen's apartment number, safety deposit box number, and phone numbers.

The FBI obtained the materials when the raid was conducted in Cohen's New York City home, office, and safety deposit box last year.

Back in February, Pauley ordered the partial release of the search warrant copies, supporting affidavits and warrant applications.

The judge also ordered the release of riders related to the raid after a petition for their release.

According to a report from The Hill:

The documents could shed light on Cohen’s case, but they are unlikely to present much new information about the campaign finance violations to which Cohen pleaded guilty that stem from payoffs he made to women who alleged they had affairs with President Trump before the 2016 election.

Pauley ordered the government to redact details about Cohen’s campaign finance violations that could jeopardize the ongoing investigation into the payoffs after federal prosecutors objected to the release of the documents, saying it would compromise an ongoing probe.

Cohen admitted during his testimony that he spoke with Democratic Reps. Elijah Cummings and Adam Schiff ahead of the hearing last month.

Cohen accused President Donald Trump of being a "racist," a "cheat," and a "conman," during his testimony.

Trump's former personal lawyer claimed the president knew that Roger Stone correlated with whistleblowing agency Wikileaks ahead of dumping the Democratic National Committee (DNC) emails during the 2016 election which saw Hillary Clinton lose to Trump.
