FBI Raids Office of Longtime Trump Attorney Michael Cohen. Employees of the FBI have made a raid in the office of Michael Cohen, for years the lawyer of the American president Donald Trump.
Stephen Ryan, who assists Cohen legally, confirmed to The New York Times that there had been a raid and that certain “communication” had been confiscated. That would have happened on behalf of Robert Mueller, the special prosecutor who is investigating Russian interference in the election campaign.
Cohen would be investigated for bank fraud and violating the rules on campaign financing, writes the Washington Post. According to that newspaper, documents were also confiscated about the payment to porn actress Stormy Daniels.
Cohen became interested in this matter. He paid $ 130,000 in silence to her just before the 2016 election. She claimed to have had sex with Trump.
President Trump calls the search of Cohen’s office “a witch-hunt, a disgrace and an attack on our country.” He says that special prosecutor Mueller and his team are biased.
