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 have yet to see a single legitimate prediction made by Q-Anon before an event.”
The fact you said that confirms to me you either have never read Q, you do have brain inflammation as I suspected or both. That’s if you really believe what you are saying.
Nothing wrong with joking around, but posting fake posts at a very serious time is not good idea.
I’m surprised the election betting odds haven’t jumped to over 50% chance of Trump being impeached. This seems to be a ratcheting up against Trump by Mueller.
“The FBI removed All of Cohens paperwork, which of course would include the paperwork of clients other than the President. Insanity”
This should be before a Federal judge to stop this insanity.
The question is, 'When will H. Clinton be installed as ''the rightful President?''' Your screen name is almost correct - civil war has arrived! Dark days...
I know you are right about Mueller and that President Trump has done nothing to deserve this. And you’re right—it shouldn’t be Obama, by law. But what I’m saying is that law doesn’t matter to these wicked, power-hungry creeps from the Swamp, because if it did, none of this would be happening to begin with.
What I do agree with is that you’re right in what you said, that this is all leading to something. Maybe civil war, but all we can do is stand by President Trump, and continue to stand for what is right. I don’t know if our republic will survive this, with half the country as stupid and deceived as they are.

“Didnt DJT fund his own campaign?”
Not entirely. Myself and others made donations.
... I thought politicians could fly...
Let’s test your theory on top of Washington’s monument.
I’m afraid so. Levin told him to resign tonight. He said he didn’t care if it ended their 30 year friendship. And what do we gave to show for it? An Alabama Democrat senator in his place.
Pretty obvious now that Sessions is part of the Deep State. If not for this idiot there would be no investigation going on. Its obvious to anyone with a brain that Mueller is there to fund any reason to impeach Trump. The president should fire Mueller tomorrow at the same time he fires Sessions and Rosenstein. Its time he lets these bastards know who the president is.
Then something more than firing in Mueller s future. Maybe a surprise vacation at gitmo...
And there we go, right on cue, back to your birther obsession. Get over it. There was a peaceful transition of power 15 months ago and Barack Obama is no longer in office.
Back to the subject at hand. The person who approved the raid on Michael Cohen’s office is the Interim U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York Geoffrey S. Berman. May 5th is the deadline for Berman to be nominated by President Trump as the permanent U.S. Attorney. Berman was Rudy Guiliani’s law partner before Jeff Sessions chose him to be Interim U.S. Attorney. It will be interesting to see if the president still wants him after this raid.
Good choice! I think the General would approve.
That is weird. Another swamp thing, or is there something fishy about Michael Cohen?
You mean we might actually have the opportunity to learn what is in the Trump tax documents that unlike other presidents he won’t show.
Yeah as that is way more important than Obama’s fast and furious, irsgate Iran deal, his lovers murder...
“You mean we might actually have the opportunity to learn what is in the Trump tax documents that unlike other presidents he wont show.”
>>To me the popular vote count should never include illegals, dead people, felons, and Dems voting more than once, and that’s the ONLY way you get more people supposedly voting for Clinton. I’ve never believed she got more of the popular vote.<<
I agree with every word of your post.
This burns me up. Raiding his lawyer’s office?????
Im wondering how they are getting warrants.
