Trump Lawyer Michael Cohen Contradicts POTUS' Depiction Of FBI Raid

Trump Lawyer Michael Cohen Contradicts POTUS' Depiction Of FBI Raid

On Monday, Michael Cohen's office and hotel room were raided by a dozen Federal Bureau of Investigation agents on search warrants that had been executed by the US Attorney's Office for the Southern District of NY, which Berman leads, according to Cohen's attorney Stephen Ryan.

The Trump attorney remains "very loyal" to the president, but told CNN that because of the impact on his family he would have likely handled the payments to Daniels differently, if he had it to do over again.

But that may be overstated, according to one of MSNBC's Nicolle Wallace's sources, who claims that Cohen not only won't take a bullet for the president, he's unlikely to go to jail for him either.

The warrants also sought business records on Cohen's dealings in the taxi industry, the person said. Mueller is most conflicted of all (except Rosenstein who signed FISA & Comey letter).

He has always been a key power center in the Trump Organization and a fixture along the edges of Trump's nascent political life. So we know the evidence seized does not directly relate to Mueller's inquiry into any conspiracy with Russians to influence the election or related crimes such as obstruction of the special counsel's investigation.

"Because of the attorney general's recusal, only Deputy AG Rosenstein could remove the special counsel, and it would have to be for good cause".

"I have this witch hunt constantly going on", Trump told reported Monday at an event inside the White House, calling the raid "an attack on our country" and on "what we all stand for".

When Trump previously considered a White House run, Cohen worked with the National Enquirer in 2010 to promote the website ShouldTrumpRun.com and encouraged the supermarket tabloid to pursue stories questioning President Barack Obama's USA citizenship, two former staffers of the publication told The Associated Press. And then you have to make sure - there's a number of guidelines within that the Justice Department has, but one of them is that the search warrant has to be written as narrowly as possible so that you make sure that you're not gaining more evidence than you need. Rosenstein has repeatedly said that he has not seen any reason to dismiss Mueller.

The raid came as Mr Mueller's probe intensifies its focus on Mr Trump's inner circle.

Under Justice Department regulations, Mueller must consult with Rosenstein when his investigators uncover new evidence that may fall outside his original mandate.

An FBI raid on the homes and workplaces of Donald Trump's personal attorney Michael Cohen does not bode well for him, but it's not clear yet exactly how much trouble he's in. Cohen and Trump both deny Trump had an affair with her, and Cohen says he paid the money out of pocket. She said that she thought they would publish her account but that they were really paying to squash her story. If Cohen made that payment himself or facilitated the payment from another individual or company, it could be deemed an illegal contribution to Trump's campaign.

Daniels, whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford, is now cooperating with federal prosecutors in their investigation of Cohen, according to a Tuesday report by NBC News.

Several former officials at the Federal Election Commission have said the payment appears to be a violation of campaign finance laws, and multiple Washington-based groups have filed complaints with the FEC, urging it to investigate.

Cohen, who has worked with the Trump Organization for close to a decade, is now being sued by Daniels for defamation.

"So Trump said, 'Who is this guy?"

"I am unhappy to have my personal residence and office raided", Cohen told CNN by phone.

"When you're a star, they let you do it", Trump says in the video, speaking to "Access Hollywood" host Billy Bush. Do I want to be involved in this?

Tax records show some of his companies now owe thousands of dollars in mandatory per-ride state transportation taxes.

Three months after Federal Bureau of Investigation agents raided Manafort's home a year ago, Mueller indicted him on 12 counts related to money laundering, tax fraud, conspiracy against the United States, and failure to register as a foreign agent.

Manafort has pleaded not guilty to all charges.

Trump could argue that is unconstitutional and fire Mueller himself or fire Rosenstein and put in someone who will fire Mueller. The White House did not immediately reply to a request for comment about Cobb and McGahn trying to dissuade Trump.
