BREAKING: FBI Raids Office Of Trump Lawyer Michael Cohen

By  Ben ShapiroDailyWire.com

On Monday afternoon, the FBI raided President Trump’s personal lawyer’s office. Michael Cohen, who has represented Trump for years and reportedly paid porn actress and alleged Trump paramour Stormy Daniels some $130,000 to keep her mouth shut before the election, found himself on the wrong end of the FBI’s radar, according to The New York Times:

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.”
