BREAKING: FBI Raids Office Of Trump Lawyer Michael Cohen

The FBI raided the offices of longtime Trump lawyer Michael Cohen on Monday, according to The New York Times.

Agents seized records related to various topics, including payments made just before the 2016 presidential election to adult film actress Stormy Daniels.

Cohen paid $130,000 to Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford. She alleges that she had a one-night stand with Trump in 2006.

Cohen’s lawyer, Stephen Ryan, issued a statement confirming the raid. He said that the U.S. attorney’s office in Manhattan obtained the warrant after receiving a referral from Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

“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,” Ryan said. “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.”

He went on to call the search “completely inappropriate and unnecessary.”

“It resulted in the unnecessary seizure of protected attorney client communications between a lawyer and his clients,” Ryan continued.

The search is not directly related to Mueller’s Russia probe, though the referral was likely made based on other information that had been provided to the special counsel, according to The Times.

Cohen, who is one of President Trump’s most dogged supporters, has turned over thousands of documents related to the Russia investigation. Mueller has dug into Cohen’s work on various Trump real estate deals.

“These government tactics are also wrong because Mr. Cohen has cooperated completely with all government entities, including providing thousands of non-privileged documents to the Congress and sitting for depositions under oath,” said Ryan.

    Any idea why the offices of the Clinton Foundation aren’t being raided? Or maybe BHO new home?

      That’s EXACTLY WHAT I WAS GOING TO SAY: In fact, why didn’t they immediately go in with a warrant and get her computers, cells, or whatever, take them and have everything to look at before the bleaching and sledge hammering?

      Good question. Mueller is not seeking the truth, he is seeking scandal. That’s where his mind is. He has done nothing in all his busyness that is worthy of the taxpayer’s dollar. He, of course, will protect Hillary and all her kind. If you cannot understand what is going on, you must be blind or unwilling to see the truth.

        “Bravos”!?! Stupid idiot…that isn’t even a word. Just wait ’til you get involved in a witch hunt, and don’t think it couldn’t happen to you. You may also want to check out Mule-r’s past history as a prosecutor, as well, to see just how corrupt a prosecutor he has been his whole career, as is fellow pro witch hunt buddy, Weinstein, who had his prosecutions overturned by the Supreme Court by a call of 9 to 0, which is basically unheard of…THAT’S how corrupt a prosecutor he is and was during a prior witch hunt, just as the one he and Mule-r are running now on taxpayer money. Check out the money the guy Mule-r railroaded in the anthrax investigation got after he sued and won against Mule-r, also taxpayer money…in the millions. Look up what the word “exculpatory” means when it comes to evidence. This is what these two tucking furds did…withheld exonerating evidence in cases they prosecuted, ruining lives in the meantime and costing thousands of innocent people their jobs…and that’s why the huge payouts to parties injured by these idiots for their corruption in handling the prosecutions against these people. No wonder so many democrats/libs don’t believe in God. They don’t ever want to consider that there just might be a punishment waiting for them as they lie on their stinking, rotten, corrupt deathbeds. “Absolute power corrupts, absolutely.” And there you are…little Ms. Useful Idiot, helping by supporting such corruption. Like I said, don’t ever believe you could never be the victim of similar corruption since, it has been said over and over again by those within the judicial system when speaking of such corruption…that corrupt prosecutors could even indict a ham sandwich if they so desired, and that’s why I fear it could happen to you, as you seem to have the IQ of a similar sandwich, but, in your case, let’s be more accurate and go with a “baloney” sandwich.

          ‘Bravos’ IS a word actually… you mouth-breathing, knuckle-dragging, neanderthal. I almost didn’t bother reading the rest of your batshit, venomous, little rant but then I saw the word ‘God’. And I did lol.

          Some of you people really need to take hard long looks at yourselves in the mirror and realise

          A) You are not as intelligent or informed as you believe you are
          B) You are not as Christian as you think you are
          C) You are not as patriotic as you think you are

      I couldn’t get more disgusted with the special investigations than I am now. Ask me if I give a hoot about some Ho he slept with in 2009. I’m more concerned about what BHO and HRC were up to in 2009. This is only more Demonrat smoke and mirrors. POTUS has already secured my 2020 vote. I could list a name of crooked individuals holding seats of power that need to go an Mueller is at the top of that list.
      Under the Obama rule the FBI,NSA,FISA and homeland security hold no credibility with me and needs to be restructured from the ground up starting with Obum and Hag cohorts.

      i believe that it is high time to put an end to this witch hunt … it is making a mockery of the whole judicial proceedings … how about doing the same on clintons uranium deals and others etc … yes i agree that Mueller is a commie and he is only aim is to destroy the USA.

        Mueller is trying to get Sessions to fire him so the Democrats can run on the claim that Trump obstructed justice and that he needs to be impeached.

        • Linda Nitzschke

          April 10, 2018 at 7:04 am

          Sessions needs to resign…he has no blz. He is letting Rosenstein give permission to Mule-r to go beyond the scope of a Russian investigation, and he has no standing to be able to do that, as Sessions only recused himself on the Russia part of the investigation…not the rest of this horse and pony show. To top it off, there has been a memo found where Rosenstein gave permission to Mule-r to go outside the scope of the Russia investigation when it came to Manafort (to make it look like Mule-r had permission to raid Manafort’s home) which, again, Rosenstein had no business doing in the first place since that would have been Session’s decision since Sessions didn’t recuse himself from every aspect of being Attorney General, and to top it off, the memo allowing the raid was dated at least a week AFTER the FBI had already raided Manafort’s home, going in with guns drawn in the wee hours of the a.m. while Manafort and his wife were still in bed. Then…get this…they took pictures of Manafort’s suits to see if they were so expensive that Manafort couldn’t have afforded to buy them considering how much money Manafort was making per year. Absolute corruption lunacy.

    What does Special Counsel Robert Mueller about Russian collusion in the 2016 elections have to do with adult film actress Stormy Daniels in 2006? oh yeah.. a reason to seize all the records of a Trump lawyer… This Mueller guy is a real time Spanish inquisition operator..

      Time to stop all of this it is illegal because they are not allowed under the special Prosecutor because it can’t be done like Muller Did i he is using overreach to try to charge Trump no for Russia but anything

      As far as I can see, this confirms that Robert Mueller is on a witch hunt in his efforts to take the President down. Mueller is the devil in disguise. He is determined to protect Hillary Clinton at all costs because he expected her to be the elected President instead of Donald Trump. The Stormy Daniels claim is a situation all on it’s own. The President was elected by the American people and we don’t care what he did a decade before he was elected. Who the hell does Robert Mueller think he is? He should be sticking to the job he was assigned to do – Russian Collusion. He needs to go!

    Desperation time for dems. They were unable to indict Trump so they are getting Mueller to go so far outside his authority that Trump him force the AG office to fire Mueller.

    The results of the IGs investigation is due out soon and it sounds as if it may contain some recommendation for indictments against several big wigs at the FBI and DNC.

    NOTHING about the Stormi Daniel’s claims have anything to do with Mueller authorization and even Rosenstein cannot pull his ass out of the fire this time.

    Who in the world voted Mueller the judge, jury and executioner? That’s the way he is acting when he got this warrant to have President’s Attorneys office raided. This has nothing what-so-ever to do with his investigation on Russia. Why is he going after Cohen? He just wants to stay on the taxpayers payroll or be a pain in the but. The President needs to tell Sessions to tell Assistant Attorney General Rob Rosenstein to fire Mueller and if he doesn’t he’s fired. And if Sessions doesn’t fire Mueller, Sessions gets fired. They all need to get fired and this “Witch Hunt” Needs to Stop. Too Long this has been going on for NO COLLUSION!!!!!
