The FBI Raided Trump Lawyer Michael Cohen's Office

Attorney Michael Cohen arrives at Trump Tower for meetings with then President-elect Donald Trump in December 2016

The FBI raided the office of Michael Cohen, a personal lawyer and confidant of President Donald Trump, Cohen's attorney confirmed to CNN Monday.

"I would be lying to you if I told that I am not", he responded.

On Tuesday morning, Trump fumed on Twitter, writing, "Attorney-client privilege is dead!" I know the attorney-client privilege.

"The decision by the U.S. Attorney's Office in NY to conduct their investigation using search warrants is completely inappropriate and unnecessary", Ryan said in a statement.

The process for what happens next was decided in 2007 by the Senate, which empowered the federal judges of each district to select the USA attorney. The implications, for Cohen and for Trump, are potentially explosive.

Cohen has been a longtime owner of taxi medallions, in addition to working as a top lawyer at the Trump Organization, the paper said. Here are some of the reasons why.

Daniels, who initially denied a sexual relationship with the president, is now seeking depositions from both Trump and Cohen.

Mueller, who is investigating the Trump campaign's possible ties to Russian Federation during the 2016 election, requested communication documents between Trump and his closest advisers, including Cohen, in March. Around 2006, after Trump got to know Cohen through his condo purchases - as well as an introduction from Donald Trump jnr - Cohen became executive vice-president and special counsel of the Trump Organisation. Cohen is something much more: a fixer, a deal-maker, a wartime consigliere. He refiled after Trump asked a federal judge to order private arbitration in the case. No one tied to the Trump campaign has been formally accused of colluding with Russian Federation to manipulate the election.

The raids, he told the network, were "upsetting to say the least".




Federal agents searched Cohen's office at 30 Rockefeller Plaza in NY, where he had been working as part of a "strategic partnership" with the law firm Squire Patton Boggs.

Avenatti declined comment when asked whether Daniels has been contacted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation or the Justice Department in connection with the Cohen raid.

"We'll see what may happen". In order to get this warrant, Mueller had to essentially turn the matter over to the US attorney's office, which is now in possession of both the evidence Mueller used to justify getting the warrant in the first place, and whatever evidence the search of Cohen's home and office produced.

McConnell also tells reporters he doesn't believe Mueller will be removed. Neal Katyal, who served as acting solicitor general under Obama, described it as "very bad news" for Cohen. Attorney General Jeff Sessions named Berman interim US attorney, although Trump took the unusual step of personally interviewing him for the job.

Grassley, an Iowa Republican, says he has confidence in Mueller and Trump should, too, adding: "It would be suicide for the president to want to talk about firing Mueller".

It's only getting worse the closer the investigation gets to him.

That's a more composed response than the President's.

Andrew Hall, who represented former Nixon adviser John Ehrlichman during the Watergate scandal, offered a succinct summary of the distinction: "If a client goes to a lawyer and confesses, "I committed a crime, I stole money, I shot somebody, I killed somebody"-whatever the crime is, it doesn't matter".
