Michael Cohen Donald Trump

President Donald Trump’s longtime personal attorney Michael Cohen is in big trouble. Federal agents executed no-knock search warrants on Cohen’s office, home, and a hotel room on Monday. The raids came as a surprise to everyone, including President Trump, who called the searches “disgraceful” and a “witch hunt”.

Cohen is under investigated for possible bank fraud and campaign finance violations related to a $130,000 payment he made to porn star Stormy Daniels in the days leading up to the election in 2016.

Daniels claimed she had an intimate encounter with Trump 12 years ago, and she accepted the hush money to keep the encounter a secret.

Although the warrants are not related to special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia collusion investigation, feds seized crucial attorney-client communications, along with income tax records and other documents.

A special team — outside of the investigators — will be formed to examine the communications between Cohen and Trump to preserve attorney-client privilege. Unless the team finds criminal wrongdoing, the communications will not be shared with prosecutors or Mueller.

Trump lashed out at the federal prosecutor of the Southern District of New York and Mueller on Twitter.com on Tuesday. He tweeted: “Attorney–client privilege is dead!” and he referred to the searches as “A TOTAL WITCH HUNT!!!”.

Legal analysts were shocked by the search of an attorney’s office. Some agreed with Trump that the feds are conducting a witch hunt to unseat a duly elected president of the United States.

“We are in pretty treacherous territory here. It’s unprecedented to my knowledge to have the President’s personal attorney raided like this,” said CNN senior political analyst David Gergen on Monday. “They must have been able to present evidence that was hugely compelling to take a step like this.”

According to the Washington Post, a search warrant requires prosecutors to go before a federal judge and demonstrate probable cause that a crime has been committed and evidence of that crime could potentially be destroyed if they don’t act quickly.

“Searches of an attorney’s office are extremely rare and are not favored, due to their potential to impinge on the attorney-client relationship.”

Trump and his supporters wonder why the FBI did not serve warrants on Hillary Clinton who destroyed evidence during the federal investigation into her illegal home server.

“This is a sad day in America,” wrote one Twitter user on Monday. Another user noted that if this can happen to the president’s personal lawyer, no one in America is safe from a prosecutorial overreach.

    I’m pretty sure Michael Cohen is going to serve some jail time.
    I posted this before downstairs, but it’s worth repeating:

    One thing I have learned from a few people is that if the FEDS come then they already have damaging evidence.

  • DETROITTOATL

    On one news station Trump stated the FEDS broke into Mike Cohen’s offices.. There is clearly something wrong with The President.

  • Phillybruh

    The compelling evidence was Trump’s big mouth, I don’t know anything about those payments. They all said it last week that statement could be problematic. Stormy Daniels attorney is the real MVP!

    Michael Cohen admitted to a crime on national TV

  • iWasteTime

    The lawyer should have executed Attorney/Client privilege and STFU!
    Do not comment, go on these shows , etc etc
    You set yourself and client up and opened the both of you up for scrutiny.
    You lied to the bank to obtain the 130K, the funny payment from the campaign, in the same amount, less than a week later was suspicious. Your client saying he didn’t know about the payment nor commit the affair, stupid. If there was no affair why did you pay her and have her sign a NDA which your client did not sign, which makes it VOID!
    Has nothing to do with the special counsel, who if the President fires, will end hid Presidency.

  • Kayke

    Naw. Just like first 48, they think they know….but they have nothing until you run your mouth. The feds come with handcuffs and charges when they have evidence.

  • FukkFolks2018

    They arent coming based on bullshit. They have something that they need to confirm. They dont have the time to be wrong. So I agree 1000%

  • Coy little wink

    It ain’t safe it ain’t safe it ain’t safe…

    The Feds are so extra when they finally get to work…

  • RespectSelf

    Everybody mad at Trump, but they should ONLY be mad at the people who put him in office. Trump is the same dude… He been this way for yearssss. The only thing that changed folks wanted him to be our president. I feel bad for him because he wanted to be President, but at what cost??? smh They trying to get at everybody around him…I wonder what is he going to be left with when this dumb presidency is over with.

  • DETROITTOATL

    If Trump gets impeached, then we have to worry about Mike Pence. This whole fiasco is not gonna turn out well.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Pence is a zealot and doesn’t hide it well.

    He was on his way to losing re-election in Indiana when Trump picked him as VP. That should tell you how crazy Pence is.

  • Pebbles

    I don’t even think he wanted to be. He wanted the publicity & he looked to be in shock just like the rest of the world when he actually won.

  • RespectSelf

    I can see that too… I really feel like folks give Trump way too much credit. if folks want to hate… they should hate the folks who either let him walk in or pushed him through the door.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I think the Feds’ conviction rate is like 97% or something. Michael Cohen knows he’s in trouble.
    I fully expect Cohen to turn on Trump to save his own skin, because at the end of the day Trump will only be loyal to Trump, no-one else.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    True.
    The Feds like to pile up the charges to get a plea agreement rather than go to trial but we will see.

    Republican = Geoffrey Berman;
    New York US Attorney authorizing Cohen raid. Staunch Trump donor, supporter and friend of Rudy Guilani. Berman was personally CHOSEN by Trump in January 2018 after firing the previous US Attorney.

    House = 237 Republicans; 192 Democrats
    Senate = 54 Republicans; 46 Democrats

    REPUBLICANS hold all the cards and YET they are not offering cover. This leads me to believe that Donald Trump has done something too egregious to be ignored.

    I would say the saddest period in America was the Jim Crow laws-era, as enacted by Democratic Party-controlled legislatures. You know when segregation was accepted as law and we were treated as second class citizens. During Trump’s presidency, Black unemployment is at it’s lowest rate since it started being recorded in the 70’s, so no 11/8/2016, the day Trump was elected, was not a sad day in America.

  • JV

    A non-sarcastic Wa Post quote — I’m impressed!

    One issue I have though: Since we don’t know what he’ll be charged with — or even if he will be charged (technically, but we know he will be) — we can’t know what the punishment could be. Could even be a Manafort-worthy 100+ years for all we know.

    Also, just a side note: It’s always amusing to see Trump writhe in agony over this and the Russia investigation, claiming it’s all a “witch hunt.” What makes it even better? The guy who signed off on the search warrant, US Attorney for the Southern District of NY Geoffrey Burman, is a Trump appointee! Which says, to me, there HAS to be some hard evidence against Trump’s attorney and/or possible collusion to commit crimes between Trump’s attorney and Trump himself.

    They act like the president is so innocent and pure. We all know he is corrupt and we all know that obviously there was some evidence to allow the Judge to make such determination that such search was needed. Lets see what happens.

    The client can still be charged if the evidence shows collusion in committing a crime.

    Trump is useless to the Republican Party at this point. They just wanted him to get their tax reform bill passed and that’s it. He is a liability during this election cycle, so they are going to let chips fall where they may. I don’t see Trump making it til 2019 as the president. Even the Republicans are tired of his bullshyt at this point

    What a waste of time and tax dollars. Nothing will come of this. There is not a white man alive that will do a day in prison on these charges.

    This must be some sort of distraction.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    This is not about her. This is about Michael Cohen’s [alleged] crimes… and maybe Trump’s too.

    They wouldn’t even have been able to get this warrant unless they could show a court probably cause that a crime had been committed.

    There is one in Prison now sure its for 30 days but he’s still a white man in prison on charges associated with Trump.

  • DroneRivers

    Isn’t this the same FBI trump and his rabid supporters were cheering a little over a year ago for reopening an investigation into Clinton? They were chanting “Benghazi” and “Lock her up!” like they were crazy, but now when the shoe is on the other foot it’s a “witch hunt”? Boy, bye.

    The lawyer is an idiot who went out of his way to announce to the world that he paid the porn star out of his own pocket. I guess he thought it would somehow help in distancing trump from the scandal, but did he even need to tell us that? He brought these people to his door himself.

AND If “she” thinks the unemployment rate has anything to do with anything Trump has done…Yeah “she’s” a bot.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Yup. He’s under suspicion of possible wire fraud. If they stack up multiple counts on that, he could be looking at 20+ years in prison. If he’s got dirt on Trump when it comes to Russia or money-laundering, he’d be smart to let Mueller and the Feds know what he knows. At the end of the day Trump will have no problem throwing him under the bus, so Cohen better look out for himself.
