“The FBI raided the office of President Trump’s longtime personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, seizing records related to several topics including payments to a pornographic-film actress,” the New York Times reports.
“Federal prosecutors in Manhattan obtained the search warrant after receiving a referral from the special counsel, Robert Mueller, 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.”
Most interesting: “The seized records include communications between Mr. Trump and Mr. Cohen.”
The Washington Post says Cohen ” is under federal investigation for possible bank fraud, wire fraud and campaign finance violations.”
Vanity Fair reports that the FBI also raided Cohen’s hotel room at the Loews Regency in New York.Save to Favorites
