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.

Ed Henry from FOX News reports they raided Cohen’s apartment too.
This is absolute BS.
“These scumbags are trying to pull the coup”
They raided Cohen’s apartment, too. This was always an overt COUP. Now they’re going full tilt.
It’s time to send in the marines. Start arresting people and send them to gitmo.
Hannity is reporting the FBI also raided Cohen’s apartment.
Whatever happened to attorney-client privilege?
No, Sessions is not a disgrace. He has thusfar proven himself to be an enabler. Trump, be damned, on with The Swamp.
This Mueller shitball is out of control.
I hope POTUS goes on the absolute warpath over this grandstanding coup attempt.
Must be over the target.
Fire Mueller today!
This is getting pretty f’n ridiculous.
Notice that this lying liar, Mueller, leaked all over the place that Trump was not a target. He was actively *trying* to get Trump’s side to let their guard down. He is so dishonest and cutthroat.
I want all the Sessions cheerleaders to explain this round of 4DChess. Your guy, Jeff, is a backstabbing turncoat.
Hindsight is 20-20.
Trump had better worry more what is happening to him in the US rather than what may or may not have happened in Syria.
Herr Mueller is on a phishing expedition...
They are not worried about the hooker. They got their pass to open up the next door and see what is behind it.
Go back to du.
Trump’s personal life is way more important apparently.
Pretty obvious isn't it?
MORE EVIDENCE THAT THE DEEP STATE CONTROLS THE FBI AND DOJ, NOT SESSIONS, WRAY, TRUMP OR THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES.
When is the CLINTON CRIME SYNDICATE and THEIR people going to be RAIDED BY THE FBI? NEVER.
