F.B.I. Raids Office of Trump’s Longtime Lawyer Michael Cohen
New York Times. ^ | April 9,2018 | MATT APUZZO

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

The F.B.I. on Monday raided the office of President Trump’s 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. Cohen’s lawyer, who called the search “completely inappropriate and unnecessary.” The search does not appear to be directly related to Mr. Mueller’s investigation, but likely resulted from information he had uncovered and gave to prosecutors in New York. “Today the U.S. Attorney’s 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 counsel’s 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.

To get blackmail on Trump. Five Trump to go to war and be a globalist puppet.

Look at Rick Scott in Florida. He and the GOP dominated Legislature blinked at the Soros led assault on gun rights. Scott signed the gun control bill thereby alienating the Panhandle and North Florida gun owner votes he desperately needs to defeat Bill Nelson. Yes, Scott is better than Nelson, but there are too many voters who will not vote or maybe vote for the Libertarian candidate as a protest.

The enemy thinks strategically. They will tolerate a deviation on an issue like abortion rights or even gun control to hold a seat in a rural, mining, or industrial area. Abortion on demand is the law unless there is a conservative majority on the Supreme Court, which has not been the case since the 1930s. As long as the GOP controls the White House and Congress, there will be no sweeping gun control measures. So if, say, Joe Manchin goes off the reservation on these issues, no big deal.

If Trump fired Mueller the investigation would still continue.

What investigation? There is no crime stated for investigation. I believe whatever is being investigated would end. This is not like firing Comey and the FBI continues it's duties. This is a special counsel with specific purview that would cease if the counsel was removed and not replaced.

Time for Trump to send the army or marines over to the FBI/DOJ buildings to grab those subpoenaed documents. Besides, everyone knows those 2 agencies running terrorist operations against this country. We should be able to find a judge to authorize it just like they do.

Maybe some foreign government will do us a favor and nuke DC. It appears to be the only way to get rid of the swamp.

Trump is one phone call away from dismissing Sessions. Mark Levin called for his termination this evening, even though he said he had been friends with Sessions for 30 years.

Actually, the best option (no, I’m not expecting this to happen) would be for SESSIONS to declare that Rosenweasel has allowed Mueller’s team to go far off the rails, SESSIONS fires Rosenweasel, Mueller, and all of them.....

Then, yes, Sessions would face a lot of heat, maybe even Congress would impeach him (or try)... but THAT would be the honorable and patriotic thing for Sessions to do at this point.

The Lunatic Fringe is maybe 20%.. Good people would come out of the woodwork. Although in 20 years that could drastically change.

Mueller is out of control.

Time to fire, Rosenstein, Mueller and Sessions.

Fire them all, arrest Rosenstein and Muller, seize all their assets, interrogate and charge them with the max.

Any Republican that turns on President Trump at this point is working for the bad guys.

It’s well past time to clean house. The Swamp is still in charge and creating chaos.

Yeah, I know.

Like I said if he had put the Jones suit to bed early, no depositions, no perjury, no Impeachment.

Apparently you missed the part where I said, “If he doesn’t fight”. I’ve shed blood for this country, I’m no quitter but at some point, he needs to take off the gloves.
