Donald Trump hits out after Federal Bureau of Investigation agents raid lawyer Michael Cohen's office

The possible crimes listed in the search warrants that have been leaked to the press are those pertaining to the adult film actress Stormy Daniels, the former Playboy model Karen McDougal and also Cohen's lucrative and shady NY taxi business.

He said that he is very loyal to Trump but after what happened on Monday, he'd rethink how he handled the payments to Daniels because of the impact on his family. First, it has been widely reported that it was Mueller, whose team has had extensive dealings with Cohen and subpoenaed countless documents, who referred the matter to NY investigators.

The FBI was seeking documents related to Donald Trump's purported affairs with an ex-Playboy model and an adult film star when it raided the president's longtime lawyer Michael Cohen, according to a person familiar with the matter.

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.

So we know the evidence seized today 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.

Almost half the Senate gathered to interrogate Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg on Tuesday, and "they clustered around him like. senators around a billionaire", Stephen Colbert said on Tuesday's Late Show.

Mr Cohen is under suspicion of bank fraud and election finance violations, said The Washington Post.

Agents raided the office of Trump's personal attorney Michael Cohen on Monday, seizing records on topics including a $130,000 payment made to porn actress Stormy Daniels.

The new details on the Cohen raid, first reported by The New York Times, emerged as the president boiled over on Twitter about it and amid evidence that investigators are zeroing in on his inner circle.

Trump called the raid against his lawyer an "attack on our country in a true sense".

Accused serial killer now charged with seventh murder — BRUCE MCARTHUR
Toronto police have released a photograph of a man who is believed to be a victim of alleged serial killer Bruce McArthur. Police now allege McArthur killed Faizi "on or about" December 29, 2010, according to documents filed in court Wednesday.

Among the records seized by investigators were "protected attorney client communications", Ryan said. On Tuesday, White House spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders said she was not sure whether Mr. Cohen remained Mr. Trump's personal lawyer.

To secure permission for such a raid, experts say, prosecutors had to convince a judge that a crime may have been committed and also that evidence was in danger of being lost or destroyed.

And to the extent that Cohen, part of Trump's innermost circle, might have knowledge relevant to Mueller's inquiry, we can't rule out the possibility that his own legal troubles could induce him to cooperate in the Russian Federation investigation.

He told MSNBC: 'I don't think he's going to hold up.

"This is actually very surreal", said Brett Tolman, a former USA attorney appointed by George W. Bush, of the raid on the President's personal lawyer. Trump told reporters last week that he did not know about it. The warrants were obtained by federal prosecutors in the Southern District of NY.

Cohen's office was raided by FBI agents on Monday in what is believed to be an investigation into an alleged $130,000 hush-money payment to Stormy Daniels before the election.

There have been few signs that Mueller was interested in investigating the payment, though. "And I thanked them at the conclusion", Cohen said, taking a different view on the ordeal than Trump did 24 hours earlier.

But Trump spoke about it publicly before a meeting with senior military leaders Monday night.

Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, alleged Cohen defamed her by insinuating she lied when she said she had an affair with Trump in 2006.

The discussions come as Trump's newest national security adviser, John Bolton, stepped into the job this week. Like me, and like many other commentators, they could be subject to confirmation bias.
