Posted on 04/09/2018 1:12:01 PM PDT by Hojczyk
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.

I think Sessions is totally out of the loop. Why would mueller/Rosenstein tell Sessions? He’s a non-entity to them.
When is the corrupt FBlIe going to be raided? They going to raid themselves?
You are on to something.
I remember reading about a US Attorney for the Southern district of NY named Ed Schneiderman, who has a reputation very much like Andrew Weisman’s.
I think Mueller is in contact with him and sent him this referral. All a scheme. I pray to God lawyers for Trump are like DeGenova, Tom Fitton, Greg Jarret and other smart, conservatives step forward and finally do away with Mueller and his band of corrupt hoodlums.
Donald Trump’s lawyer gets his home and office “no-knock” raided by FBI agents.
Hillary Clinton’s lawyer gets immunity.
Sessions is modernity’s, Benedict Arnold. His name will live in Infamy.
If we can’t have anything nice when it comes to elections, NOBODY can have anything nice when it comes to elections...
Even IF this were “FEC related”, how, exactly, is that related to the original mission of uncovering supposed “Collusion”?!!
It’s staggering how much Mueller has been allowed to get away with. Trump needs to fire him, and do so NOW.
Lick the totalitarian boots that stomp your face.
And don't forget to vote for The Approved Candidate.
The next investigation will be into the librarian who gave a pass to Trump’s over due book when he was 13 years old........
Mueller is effectively ending attorney client privelage for people charged with no crime.
So much for the Constitution...
I know.. its Outrageous. President Trump and Cohen did Nothing wrong.. We already know our Leftist ruled courts go after people they disagree with politicaly without legitimate evidence.. it’s a full out coup.
The "WKRP in Cincinnati" episode "Turkeys Away" airs tonight at 9:30 on ME-TV.
Now back to our regular programming....
If they get away with this stuff, they'll be the new American Gestapo.
Wonder if they'll implement the beatings and the torture, or will they just let that happen in prison?
Gowdy is no better than Graham.
They are both Cheap Labor Express stooges.
All of SC’s Congressional delegation are.
Right on, and the Uniparty will rule forever. Those who thought they could challenge the corrupt State will have been taught that they cannot change things within the system. I would hope that there are forces that are not posting on social media or sharing plans that are preparing to stop the current coup and right the ship of state.
“Trump needs to fire him, and do so NOW.”
Trump needed to fire sessions, rosenstein and mueller when this coup first kicked off. It’s too late now. The damage is done. Mueller has enough ‘dirty laundry’ to bring down Trump even without finding anything illegal.
The only way to salvage himself and the country now is to call out the marines and start arresting people.
Ther's a few million of us who are rabid - because President Trump revealed who these people REALLY are...
What's wrong Extremist, did I step on the hoof of your sacred cow? You aren't one of those true-believers in the Q nonsense, by any chance, are you?
Wasn't a key axiom of Q-anon that Mueller was secretly working with Trump and that soon, real soon the TRUE allegiance and purpose of the Mueller investigation would be obvious!
Yes, yes it was.
Well, OK, here is a very strong piece of counter-evidence that suggests that Mueller is, actually, a Obama-aligned swamp-creature.
Instead of insulting me, maybe rethink your assumptions.
The entire Q-anon phenomena looks more and more like a disinformation operation designed to confuse and divide Trump supporters.
BTW: Weren't we promised #ReleaseTheFilm back in March?
Yes, yes we were.
Weren't we told Hillary's arrest was imminent back in November?
Yes, yes we were.
Do you need to buy a vowel to figure it out, Extremist?
Why did Nixon win reelection in a landslide?
