The FBI raids Michael Cohen’s office

April 9, 2018

  The big news of the day is the FBI raid conducted on Donald Trump’s lawyer’s office. Here is more:

The FBI on Monday raided the office of President Trump‘s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, and seized emails, tax documents and records related to his payment to adult-film star Stormy Daniels.

Cohen’s lawyer, Stephen Ryan, said in a statement that federal prosecutors in Manhattan obtained a search warrant after receiving a referral “in part” from special counsel Robert Mueller. Ryan called the search “completely inappropriate and unnecessary.” 

The New York Times reported that the payment to Daniels is just one of “many topics” being looked at by the FBI.

Other seized documents include business records and communications between Cohen and Trump, but the raid does not appear to be directly connected to Mueller’s probe of Russian meddling in the 2016 election, according to The Times.

Among the materials agents secured are those related to Cohen’s $130,000 payment to Daniels as part of a nondisclosure agreement related to her alleged 2006 affair with Trump.

  The raid does not appear to be related to Russian collusion however this payment to Stormy Daniels could prove to be a problem for the President due to its timing in the 2016 election.

  Having said that, whatever happened to attorney/client privilege? If I remember correctly during the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email scandal the former Secretary of State named her aide, Cheryl Mills, one of her attorneys to protect communications between the two and it worked because of attorney/client privilege. But now apparently there is no such thing as attorney/client privilege.

  The collusion investigation seems to have fallen apart, as has apparently the obstruction investigation and now Robert Mueller seems to be digging for anything he can use to take Donald Trump down. But besides that I believe Robert Mueller is actually trying to goad the President into firing him and disbanding the special counsel so the Democrats can move forward with impeachment charges.

Much like the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email scandal, the result of the investigation  has already been determined  and they are now seeking a means to the end.

    Was this even legal for them to do? Some say ‘no’ they didn’t go thru the proper channels, procedures to conduct such a raid. BUT ‘WHO CARES AS LONG AS THEY GET WHAT THEY WANT!’ The den of snakes has infested so much of this Country … even in the minds and hearts of the people ~ brainwashed, indoctrinated and blinded by the lie system.
    Time for us to get what we want ~ THEM GONE! 🤺 Time to PURGE & Flush them. 👎

    If the scum raiders don’t ‘find what they want’ they just “happen to have something to slip into the paperwork” just like planting drugs, photoshopped pics, etc.
    (Of course they’ll not show anything that taints their bosses or kin of the 👺💩 clothe.)
    Those in ‘positions of supposedly representing’ the American people … what a laugh … the TIME HAS COME to exterminate the diseased and may the LORD see fit to do so quickly & effectively!
    Instead of them (the liars, shysters and pervs/pedos) dominating, take them out/remove them and put in people of good character that uphold things of true value! Stand for Righteousness!
    How refreshing that would be … we’ve not seen much of that in our life time (only glimmers).

      I don’t know if they followed the proper channels or not but even if they did this seems like an abuse of power which should not be permitted.

        The ‘cheating deep world cabal’ has done this before with raiding Paul Manafort home (The FBI search of the home of former Donald Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort Aug 2017) no-knock search based on ‘lies” = the Fruit of the Poisonous Tree doctrine … liars protect their own. Why didn’t they raid Hilly’s home before she burnt some of her evidence?
        There’s a ‘shaking’ going on, let’s pray the good guys win, meaning ‘we do too!’
