Robert Mueller has been desperately casting about for a way to bring down Donald Trump.
And he may have found his mark.
The special counsel tipped off the FBI and it resulted in a raid on the one office that could lead his witch hunt against the President to its conclusion.
Mueller passed along information to prosecutors in New York who then ordered a FBI raid against Trump attorney Michael Cohen.
But this information has nothing to do with the Russia investigation.
It is a pure fishing expedition to pierce the veil of attorney client privilege to dredge up anything Mueller can use against Trump.
“The F.B.I. raided the office and hotel room of President Trump’s longtime personal lawyer, Michael D. Cohen, on Monday, seizing business records, emails and documents related to several topics, including payments to a pornographic film actress.
Federal prosecutors in Manhattan are investigating Mr. Cohen for possible bank fraud, and the documents identified in the warrant date back years, according to a person briefed on the search.
The prosecutors obtained the search warrant after receiving a referral from the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, according to Mr. Cohen’s lawyer, who called the search “completely inappropriate and unnecessary.” The search does not appear to be directly related to Mr. Mueller’s investigation, but most likely resulted from information that he had uncovered and gave to prosecutors in New York.”
Cohen paid adult film star Stormy Daniels $130,000 in October 2016 and the media has been on the hunt to prove this was a campaign finance violation.
The establishment has failed in every attempt to remove Trump from office and they have latched on to this thin reed as their latest Hail Mary play.
Trump condemned the raid in the harshest of terms blasting Mueller’s determination to subvert Democracy and undo the election as “an attack on our country.”
“President Donald Trump reacted angrily Monday after the FBI seized records from his longtime personal attorney, calling the law enforcement actions “disgraceful” and part of “an attack on our country.”
An attorney for Michael Cohen, Trump’s lawyer, said earlier Monday that federal investigators had executed a series of search warrants and seized records. The attorney, Stephen Ryan, said the New York action was taken following a “referral” from special counsel Robert Mueller.
“I just heard that they broke into the office of one of my personal attorneys, a good man,” Trump told reporters at the White House. “It’s a disgraceful situation…I’ve been saying it for a long time. I have this witch hunt constantly going on.”
“It’s an attack on our country,” Trump said. “It’s an attack on what we all stand for.”
