President Trump Michael Cohen Robert Mueller

The FBI executed a no-knock warrant on the office of President Donald Trump’s longtime personal lawyer Michael Cohen on the orders of the U.S. Attorney’s office of the Southern District of New York. During the raid on Monday federal agents seized documents, including tax forms and privileged attorney, client communication, according to Cohen’s attorney attorney Stephen Ryan.

“The decision by the US attorney’s office in New York to conduct their investigation using search warrants is completely inappropriate and unnecessary,” Ryan said.

“It resulted in the unnecessary seizure of protected attorney-client communications between a lawyer and his clients.”



The raid is related to a $130,000 payment made by Cohen to porn star Stormy Daniels to buy her silence prior to the 2016 election. Daniels has claimed she had sex with Trump 12 years ago.

Trump stated he knew nothing about the $130,000 payment made to Daniels.

An earlier version of this post was corrected to show that special prosecutor Robert Mueller did not order the raid.




  • Ms..N

    Lol and the plot thickens! Paying off someone for silence would most likely be against the law!!

    Republicans Giving Up House Seats At A Rate Not Seen In Decades

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    This is the NY State AG, not Mueller. This is a State crime and may effect Cohn’s law license. I think that’s what they’re going for, to strip him of his license. If he loses his license then he’s no longer the Pres. attorney. Remember Nipsey Russell – Loose lips sink ships? That’s what Cohn did….talked too much.

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    Trump threw Cohn under the bus when he said “talk to my attorney.”

    Actually only if the act is criminal, its was not a bribe and more than likely she approached them which be extortion or blackmail or both. The thing is if you dnt want to be quiet then dnt take money and spend it.

    It doesn’t matter that she took the money and spent it as she is not a presidential candidate or sitting president.

    It matters that Trump orchestrated the giving of the money for a bribe because Trump carries the burden of presidential credibility.

    Stormy Daniels is not denying what she is, she is simply alleging she was paid to be silent about their affair and she is telling the truth because he did sleep with her.

    These times we are living in make my tummy upset.

  • hottlanta

    Had he just answered the questions at the debate like a man with Hillary instead of acting like a bytch bringing those 4 women like they were on the Price Is Right talking about Bill indiscretions. Dump wouldn’t be going thru this mess.. Karma is a bytch. Now watch he starts a war with NK to take away from the attention of this mess. It is funny how the same rules they used against Bill they are using it against him. But but but Hiliary. Should have left it alone.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    The bribe was paid before Trump was elected.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Trump did not lie under oath. He lied to a reporter. He can say whatever he wants to a reporter.

  • dontgetblocked

    This is such a waste of taxpayer money. Just face it. Hillary Clinton is not going to be president. Her husband was impeached for lying about about a BJ. All of this silliness behind a porn star/ prostitute who wants more money. WHO CARES?? Been there done that with the Clintons already.

  • dontgetblocked

    Which debate? Oh the one that the DNC gave HIllary questions beforehand. Don’t throw stones. Ya girl is full of dirt and her impeached hubby! Monica and the blue dress. “I did not have sexual relations with that woman.”

  • TMW

    “Mueller has previously stated President Trump is not under any criminal investigation.”
    ————————————————

    The headline of a WaPo article on 4/3 said “Mueller told Trump’s attorneys the president remains under investigation but is not currently a criminal target.”

    There’s a difference.

  • hottlanta

    Hillary may not be President and Dump ain’t Presidential. Bill got his dunk sucked years ago and folks still talk about and don’t wanna hear nothing current about Dump getting spanked in current news. Waiting on Pee Gate at your Netflix Channel near you.

  • dontgetblocked

    She’s lived a pure and truthful life. Yeah right! She’s a porn star and a prostitute. She’s lived a rough drug filled life.

  • Janice Collins

    the Lawyer said he didn’t know about it. The real question is if they haven’t found a link between Russia and Trump, what are they investigation still

  • Phillybruh

    No he can’t. It becomes part of the public record and can be used against him or anybody for that matter.

  • hottlanta

    Had someone gave Dump the answers he would have never brought those women to keep from answering a question. If there was a question he couldn’t answer he would say it was a “gotcha question”. Can’t believe folks voted for someone who says he gets foreign policy experience from watching Sunday morning news shows. She might be full of dirt but Dump is full of shyt. Behnzi was investigated 8 times by the Republicans and was found no wrong doing and yet they still wasting tax payers money. ROTFLMAO when he said had Obama not taken his foreign policy advice in 2013 while he was playing armchair President we wouldn’t be in this mess with Syria. The White House is a SNL skit everyday.

  • dontgetblocked

    BILL CLINTON WAS IMPEACHED! It was and is a big deal. Who the hell wants to put his wife in office? That’s one reason she lost. President Trump won. He won’t be impeached and he will serve two terms. That’s the way the cookie crumbles.

  • hottlanta

    Yep he been going on rallies and everything as if he is free. Can’t wait for the deposition and see him read.

    Let someone show a picture of Michelle as a naked 2 month old baby. It is funny how things are not important when it comes to Dump but when it concerns Obama/Hillary it matters. Can’t wait for Dump to answer the question as to why he told WikiLeaks to get Hillary emails and brag about how much he loves WikiLeaks.

  • TMW

    Exactly. Pence is more dangerous TBH. He’s actually kind of smart and politically savvy. And a stone cold conservative who doesn’t want anything to do with anything or anyone that doesn’t look like him or think like him.

    From what I’m reading online, they suspect that there are more payoffs by “Cohn/Trump” to other women. Avenetti said he had 8 women who were like Stormy and had relations with Trump and were paid off, allegedly.

    I thing that Trump’s lawyer broke campaign finance laws by making the payment so that’s what the issue is.

    I think you’re right. His tweets were used against him in certain court rulings because they’re considered part of the public record.

    Trump is a rapist, with incestuous tendencies towards his own daughter. He is garbage. I just don’t think it matters or we care about her story and that they had sex. She’s a born star. He’s a womanizer. it would be different if she was saying he raped her and paid her hush money but if he paid her for sex, that’s her profession. To me it seems that she’s seeking attention and more money.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Doesn’t matter. Pence might be an extremist, but at least he’s rational. Trump, on the other hand, is irrational, which makes him much more of a danger to America.

    We’ll see what he says under oath.

    If he told the truth then his lawyer is in big trouble.

    The problem is that the Russians are still interfering–just look at some of the comments on this thread.

    I am not sure if Democrats will take back either House because the gun nuts have been stirred up and even the farmers who are going to be hurt by Trump’s trade war seem to be sticking with him.

    Even if Democrats do take back the House and impeach Trump there aren’t enough votes in the Senate to convict and remove Trump.

    Maybe, just maybe Mueller gets with McConnell and Ryan and they give Trump an ultimatum–resign or be prosecuted.

    “When we kick their ass they all like to claim we’re drunk. I’ve been hanging out getting ready to ram a hot poker up David Hogg’s ass tomorrow,” the tweet read, according to a screen shot posted by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. “Busy working. Preparing.”

    Since folks keep on bringing up Hillary, President Clinton, and I even saw John Edwards below…the common denominator of these folks are they all at one time or another were high powered attorneys. As in they know the laws no matter how much they change or how long ago they practiced law like the back of their hands.

    Not that they HAVENT done wrongdoing. However. They know how to toe the line JUST enough for it still to be legal. John Edwards at one time was the most powerful attorney in this state. Not one of. The most. He is back at his old firm he founded (Edwards Kirby) still winning huge lawsuits to the tune of millions of dollars.

    Trump should have taken his slow lead trying to always beat the system ass to law school and maybe he wouldn’t be in ANY of this.

  • Phillybruh

    All he had to do was be quiet, All they were waiting for was him to contradict some evidence they already have.

    And see attorneys know when to hold em (stfu) and when to fold em (release just enough LIMITED information). Since he doesnt have that training…he is indeed in hot water.

    SR: Only if it can be proven that the money came from a campaign fund.

    No that’s not the definition. If it has anything to do with influencing the campaign and reaches a certain dollar amount it’s an illegal campaign contribution.

    Ask John Edwards how that worked out for him and these funds exchanged hands within weeks of the election, but Trump’s fixer Cohen has more problems on his hands—the feds know he took a bus from Germany to Prague to meet with Russian hackers involved in the Russian collusion ( conspiracy).

    Cohen is looking at 30 years in the federal pen. Even if Trump pardons him Cohen is looking at NY state charges.

    So he has no incentive to take the fall hoping that Trump will pardon him.

    Good times. Good times.
