Michael Cohen: What The Raid On Trump's Lawyer Means For Mueller Probe

He is maintaining his innocence.

Either way, Trump angrily referred to the raid on Cohen as a "disgrace".

The Justice Department's interest in Cohen appears to be connected to his efforts to silence two women, in the run-up to the 2016 election, who claimed to have had affairs with Trump.

Another porn star, known publicly as Stormy Daniels, also received $130,000 from Mr. Trump's attorney, Michael D. Cohen.

The $130,000 payment was in exchange for Daniels' - whose real name is Stephanie Clifford - signing a nondisclosure agreement regarding her one-time alleged sexual encounter with Donald Trump in 2006, Daniels has said.

"We have been in contact with federal authorities regarding their execution of a warrant relating to Mr. Cohen", he continued. "And I thanked them at the conclusion", Cohen said in a phone conversation on Tuesday with CNN.

The search was executed pursuant to judge-issued warrants, according to Cohen's personal attorney Stephen M. Ryan.

Cohen has denied any wrongdoing. In addition to Mr. Rosenstein, all of the top law enforcement officials involved in the raid are Republicans: Mr. Mueller, Christopher A. Wray, the F.B.I.

AMI CEO David Pecker is close friends with Trump and the Enquirer endorsed him for president.

'This is the president you're going to see more of from on out: unvarnished, untethered, ' a White House insider said, according to Axios. "It is the red line he always seemed to draw in his bitter complaints about the Mueller investigation-now here we are".

Ray Wilkins, former England and Manchester United midfielder, dies aged 61
Prolific, too, as a television pundit, Wilkins is widely renowned for being a compassionate, supportive and kind man. Ray Wilkins was recently on Chelsea's back-room staff under Luiz Felipe Scolari, Guus Hiddink and Carlo Ancelotti .

"If you go to the attorney's office and you look at attorney-client privileged material by mistake, you're in a world of hurt", Litman said. "He should be allowed to finish the job he was assigned". That logic is unlikely to soothe Trump, who is reportedly itching to fire Sessions, Rosenstein, and Mueller.

The raid creates a new legal headache for Trump as he and his attorneys weigh whether to agree to an interview with Mueller's team, which in addition to investigating potential ties between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign is also examining whether the president's actions constitute obstruction of justice.

But legal specialists say such raids, while unusual and aggressive, have to be vetted through an arduous legal process approved at the highest levels of the Department of Justice.

The President and his supporters can keep calling special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation a "witch hunt", but Monday's developments illustrate just how un-witch-hunty Mueller's probe is. "In other words, I think in many ways what happened with Cohen is less of a potential threat to the attorney-client privilege than what is happening with Cooper".

Cornyn says he expects Mueller will be able to finish his probe of Russian interference into the 2016 election, and that his dismissal would have consequences "that not even the president can anticipate".

After Buzzfeed past year published the contents of the Russian "dossier", Cohen in January sued the publication and a consulting firm, Fusion GPS, that produced it because the document alleged that he met with a Russian official in Prague, among claims about possible collusion between Russia and the campaign.

Trump is fuming after federal agents raised his personal attorney's office in NY. One minute later he added, "A TOTAL WITCH HUNT!"

Avenatti is also suing Michael Cohen for defamation. "Cohen would not be a subject or target that Trump would wish to have flipped against him".

Daniels has said she had sex with the president in 2006.
