Federal Prosecutors in New York obtained a search warrant for Mr. Cohen's office after they were given a referral by Mueller's Special Council.

Cohen's own lawyer said the search doesn't appear to be related to Mueller's investigation and special council but resulted from information uncovered by Mueller during his investigation and then given to prosecutors in New York.

Cohen's lawyer said that raid was inappropriate and unnecessary and said the seized records include communications Cohen and his clients as well as documents surrounding Cohen's payment to Stormy Daniels.

Cohen's lawyer said they have already been working with Mueller's Special Council in providing 1000's of documents relating to Trump and Cohen. These documents are handled by a special team of FBI agents to review because those are protected from scrutiny in most instances

Lol! If this is all Mueller has to do is search for records of a payment to a whore, this "investigation has totally drifted off into the weeds. Investigating via search warrants of lawyers offices is improper and reeks of desperation.

You do realize that Mueller decided not to act on this info that was uncovered as it wasn't pertinent to his investigation and turned it over to the NY Federal Prosecutor who decided to act .

Wanna bet if there's anything salacious it will get '"leaked" to the press. He's gone so far off the rails with his pseudo-investigation it's almost comical the ends he will go to prove his relevance.

were you saying the same thing with Clinton?
I wasn't aware anything to do with BC was the result of a raid on his attorney's office. He was convicted of lying under oath. No need to look for what's right in front of you.

They can try but they’re never going to find anything worse than a parking ticket unless they make something up. Trump gets a BJ from a slut and this warrants the FBI to raid his lawyer 12 years later? Meanwhile the Clinton crime family is involved in racketeering, espionage, theft, possibly even murder and they are left completely alone? People aren’t stupid, all the deep state is showing is just how insanely corrupt justice is in this country.

LOL..you have no clue what this raid was about or what is going on but it's Muller so it is anti-Trump!!

The New York Federal Prosecutor in charge of the office, Geoffrey Berman, that ordered the raid and got the search warrant was named by Jeff Sessions to the position in January 2018...because if you remember Trump fired every single Federal Prosecutor and Sessions testified in the Senate Judiciary Committee that Trump was involved in the process of interviewing all potential Federal prosecutors to replace them.

Ohh and the guy who's office ordered this FBI raid Geoffrey Berman...also served on the Trump Transition team when he became POTUS

So Trump helps Sessions interview all his Federal Prosecutors. Sessions appoints a Trump vetted Federal Prosecutor to the New York office, Sessions appoints a former member of Trumps POTUS transition team to this office, this office gets a referral from Mueller's office regarding Trump's personal Lawyer and the Prosecutor gets an FBI warrant to raid Trump's lawyers office......But MUELLER! Off the rails!! OMGZERS

HAHAHA

Don't you know all this is happening because the Democrats' feelings are hurt? They totes forced all these Republican Trump appointees to do this.

Best I've seen is it's possibly about Cohen making an illegal campaign contribution by paying off the porn star during the campaign.

If Trump was truly unaware of the payment doesn't really affect Trump. If Cohen can show where he billed Trump for the payment it's nothing regardless. Unless Trump paid the bill with campaign money.

Heard some speculation that this could be a fraud complaint against Cohen for misrepresenting how he was going to use the money he borrowed against his house to pay the whore. If he's that stupid, off with his head (figuratively speaking).

Let me guess, Hillary Clinton is Stalin in your analogy...:rolleyes:
The NKVD chief was Labrentiy Beria and Hillary had nothing to do with this investigation or analogy. What I am saying is Mueller will find something on Trump because he apparently has not found collusion which was the stated reason for the special counsel.
