A lawyer who said he was working on behalf of two women who claimed that the former New York attorney general, Eric T. Schneiderman, had “sexually victimized” them, asserted on Friday that he had discussed the claims in 2013 with Michael D. Cohen, Donald J. Trump’s longtime lawyer and fixer.

The lawyer for the women, Peter J. Gleason, filed a letter on Friday in the ongoing investigation of Mr. Cohen, seeking an order to protect any records that Mr. Cohen may have concerning the women. As part of that investigation, federal agents raided Mr. Cohen’s office, apartment and hotel room last month.
