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.

Think of all the records they might have scooped up. Anything to “get” this President. Close this crap down POTUS! Enough already!
And I was just thinking the file folders are all empty — except with a single Post-It note paper in each folder with a silly smiley-face drawn on it.
The swamp will, if not already has, stopped President Trump from making any sudden moves. One man against massive fraud.
If he doesn’t push back on this, I’m done. If Mueller is not fired, it’s a disgrace. If he doesn’t fight, I’m not going to fight for him. I’m gonna pull up stakes, stock up and quit the political process.
There hasn’t even been any crime alleged. I’m wondering how they are getting warrants. Where the F*&k is Sessions? Where are the Republican Leaders calling for heads to roll at the FBI and DOJ. This is a straight up Coup.
Maybe hell tweet about it. Everyone seems to love that.
Paging Trey Gowdy. Still think Mueller is an A-ok stand up ethical trustworthy guy? Huh, Trey?
WHERE’S THE FRIGGIN’ CRIME???
Mueller must be crushed by USAians.
see post # 18
Maybe Cohen was slow walking subpoena responses to the FBI.
Cant think of anyone who would do that, can you? /s
Federal Marshalls anyone?
WHEN IS THE FBI GOING TO RAID THE OFFICES OF THE FOLLOWING KNOWN CRIMINALS?:
Hillary, Huma, Anthony, Clapper, Brennan, Comey, Strzok, Page, Mills, Rice, Obama, Lynch, Power, Lerner, Koskinen, Pagliano, etc???
EFF YOU, FBI, for IGNORING the REAL criminals right in front of your EFFING FACES.
They have to stop Trump or their legal difficulties could be substantial.
Evidently the FBI conducted the raid. They have plenty of reason to be furious with Trump for showing how crooked they are.
Whether Mueller had anything to do with it should be considered questionable. Sure, over the years he provided the FBI with various communications. But maybe they made this story up. Or maybe the lying reporter did. Or both.
Imagine if the FBI had raided Hillary’s house and confiscated her server before she deleted all that evidence...
And yet Hillary, Podesta, Comey, Clapper, Brennan, Mccabe, Strzok, and 100s more guilty Deep Staters are waltzing around scott free.
Sessions is a disgrace.
