In a clear example of Deep State thuggery that extends far beyond the purview of Robert Mueller’s original investigative intent, federal officials have raided the offices of longtime Trump personal attorney Michael Cohen. Today’s raid was hinted at weeks earlier via a D.C. Whispers report that outlined how the Mueller investigation is now wrapping its tentacles around all things Trump including the President’s private business, family, and personal life.
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.”
Attorney General Jeff Sessions was likely notified of the impending action against Mr. Cohen days earlier but continues to do nothing to reign in the out-of-control witch hunt that is the Mueller investigation against Donald Trump.
