FBI Sought Trump 'Access Hollywood' Tape Records in Michael Cohen Raid

Michael Cohen President Donald Trump's lawyer doesn't want

She claims to have had an affair with Trump in 2006 and told her story last month on "60 Minutes".

"Back in the early 2000s, Trump used to tell me all the time that he was recording me when I covered him as reporter for the New York Times", O'Brien wrote. When your identity theft case or worse gets scuttled by the Federal Bureau of Investigation for lack of manpower remember this tweet. On the tape, Trump is heard bragging about groping women and kissing them without their consent.

Ty Cobb, a lawyer for the White House counsel's office, declined to comment, suggesting only that the two sides continued to speak.

Investigators also sought any communications Cohen had with Trump and campaign aides about "potential sources of negative publicity" in the lead-up to the election, the person said.

On Monday, President Donald Trump learned that F.B.I. agents had raided an office and a hotel apartment that were the territory of Michael Cohen, his personal lawyer.

"The other charges will be bank fraud, wire fraud", he said. Trump telling Bush that "when you're a star" you are allowed to "grab...pussy" was, in my opinion, something that could have easily destroyed Trump's "blue-collar" connection to the white Democrats in the Rust Belt who ended up getting him elected president.

People familiar with Cohen's tendency to digitally record his conversations say they're anxious about who he may have recorded, what the conversations on those recordings entail, and whether the Federal Bureau of Investigation is in possession of them.

Contrary to the dramatic portrayals in some movies and television shows, obtaining a federal search warrant-especially when it's to search the offices of a lawyer-is not an effortless feat. Whenever investigators get too close to Trump's business, he starts talking about firing the investigators.

Trump now less likely to sit for Mueller interview
The president also reportedly considered firing Rosenstein last summer around the same time that he considered firing Mueller. His frustration increased this week after the Federal Bureau of Investigation raided Michael Cohen's home, hotel and office.

Moscow orders for the immediate ban of Telegram in Russian Federation
Other encrypted messaging apps, such as WhatsApp and Signal, remain legal in Russian Federation . Telegram is based in Berlin, and has around 200m monthly active users.

The investigation is being run by Robert Khuzami, a veteran federal prosecutor whose boss, Geoffrey Berman, is the interim USA attorney for the Southern District of NY. And Cohen has never been a typical example of a high-powered lawyer. As a lawyer at the Trump Organization, he dealt with some matters related to Russian Federation; that connection continued during the campaign. Certainly Trump is concerned about the former, but it's the overseas affairs that present the greatest danger to his presidency.

Still, Mr Cohen was able to fill certain political voids that no one else seemed able to, such as forming a so-called diversity coalition of African-American, Hispanic and Muslim supporters, and he also raised money for the campaign and later for Mr Trump's inaugural committee. "Cohen would not be a subject or target that Trump would wish to have flipped against him". Cohen's reaction to the raid lends some credibility to the idea that he won't be as defiant as one might have expected.

This was a very rare move - to raid someone's personal lawyer, in this case, Trump's. And I will tell you, no, I have not. "I think that things are going to sound like they are slowing down for a little bit because all of this information has to be pulled, digested, analyzed, inputted into a bigger picture", he cautioned.

Cohen, who is under the microscope in multiple threads of investigations by NY state and federal prosecutors, resigned himself to the reality of the situation, admitting to CNN that he is anxious about what's next.

"Do I need this in my life? No. Do I want to be involved in this? No".

That FBI agents were searching Cohen's office for information about the AMI payment to McDougal is particularly notable, as Cohen claims to have had no part in the transaction.

That does not sound like a man who is prepared to go down with the ship.
