The F.B.I. on Monday raided the office of President Trumps longtime personal lawyer, Michael D. Cohen, seizing records related to several topics including payments to a pornographic-film actress. Federal prosecutors in Manhattan obtained the search warrant after receiving a referral from the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, according to Mr. Cohens lawyer, who called the search completely inappropriate and unnecessary. The search does not appear to be directly related to Mr. Muellers investigation, but likely resulted from information he had uncovered and gave to prosecutors in New York. Today the U.S. Attorneys Office for the Southern District of New York executed a series of search warrants and seized the privileged communications between my client, Michael Cohen, and his clients, said Stephen Ryan, his lawyer. I have been advised by federal prosecutors that the New York action is, in part, a referral by the Office of Special Counsel, Robert Mueller. Mr. Cohen plays a role in aspects of the special counsels investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. He also recently said he paid $130,000 to a pornographic-film actress, Stephanie Clifford, who said she had an affair with Mr. Trump. Ms. Clifford is known as Stormy Daniels. Mr. Ryan said Mr. Cohen has cooperated with authorities and turned over thousands of documents to congressional investigators looking into Russian election meddling. The payments to Ms. Clifford are only one of many topics being investigated, according to a person briefed on the search. The F.B.I. also seized emails, tax documents and business records, the person said.

BLAH , click bait for Left News
Well, just another opportunity for the Trump administration to roll over without a fight. The Republicans will lose both the House and the Senate. And I’m sure that is just fine with the RINOs on the Hill if it means hurting President Trump. I’m talking to you Little Marco and I Surrender John McCain.
Time to fire Mueller, this is nothing more than harassment.
Trump better wake up and realize this is a war. Mueller needs to be fired forthwith. There is zero reason to seize any records regarding Daniels, other than to embarrass the President. Even if he slept with her, the payment to her is nothing more than a legal settlement just like an NDA. The media will crucify Trump either way, but the people will back him.
The swamp is rising up to protect it’s inhabitants. I am shocked, I tell you... SHOCKED.....
Not even remotely related to Russia collusion.
Fire Rosenweasel NOW!
Enough of this garbage.
Trump needs to immediately jail the head of the FBI, Soros, Clinton and the Bush family now.
These scumbags are trying to pull the coup
Time to fire Mueller and the idiot that gave him a blank cheque
Yet they do NOTHING about the Awan brothers..this is a freakin WITCH HUNT
