President Trump‘s attorney was raided by the FBI Monday … and the operation was put in motion by none other than Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
We’ve confirmed federal agents swooped into Michael Cohen‘s NYC office with a search warrant, and seized thousands of documents related to Mueller’s Russia investigation. They also reportedly grabbed records of Cohen’s $130,000 payment to Stormy Daniels.
Cohen’s attorney says the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York got the search warrant based on a referral from Mueller.
The seized docs include communications between Cohen and President Trump … according to the NY Times, which first reported the raid.
Cohen’s attorney called the raid heavy-handed because “It resulted in the unnecessary seizure of protected attorney client communications between a lawyer and his clients.” He added, Cohen’s been fully cooperative with Congress throughout the investigation, and has sat for depositions under oath.
The DFL Trump calls the raid a “total witch hunt” and an “attack on what we all stand for.”
