Feds Raid Trump Atty Cohen's Office, Seize Emails

Feds Raid Trump Atty Cohen's Office, Seize Emails

"If you know the person who's in charge of the investigation, you know all about that", Trump said. "Well, I think it's a disgrace". "He should be allowed to finish the job he was assigned".

Asked if he wants to fire Mueller, Mr Trump replied: "Many people have said: "You should fire him".

- The FBI raid on President Donald Trump's personal attorney Michael Cohen sought information that included payments allegedly made to keep women silent about affairs with Trump more than a decade ago.

The Times reported the search doesn't appear to be directly linked to Mueller's investigation into whether Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 USA presidential election or whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russian Federation.

Asked by reporters on Monday night whether he intends to do so, Mr. Trump said, "We'll see what happens". 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. That means it had to be approved not only by Trump's handpicked FBI Director, Christopher Ray, but also by his hand-picked US Attorney for the SDNY and by his hand-picked head of the criminal division of the DOJ. "The less the president said on this whole thing, the better off he would be, the stronger his presidency would be".

Trump is fuming after federal agents raised his personal attorney's office in NY. "This is a pure and simple witch hunt".

Mueller is examining possible collusion between Trump's campaign and Moscow, allegations of corrupt behaviour by Trump campaign lieutenants, and of White House efforts to obstruct the investigation.

The drop, it said, was from a peak of 2500 million cubic feet per day (mmcf/d) a few years ago to about 700mmcf/d presently. Between 2010 and today, nearly 500 kilometres of pipelines had been completed, commissioned and now delivering gas.

After months of pressure, in February Cohen admitted making the $130,000 payment via a shell company to Daniels as part of a non-disclosure agreement.

He also argues she hasn't suffered any damages and that his statements were an opinion and "rhetorical hyperbole" under the law.

FBI agents on Monday raided Cohen's Manhattan office, home and hotel room as part of the investigation, seizing records about Cohen's clients and personal finances.

The raid prompted a new blast on Tuesday from the president, who tweeted that "Attorney-client privilege is dead!" He added: "A TOTAL WITCH HUNT!".

The raids were part of an investigation referred by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III to federal prosecutors in NY.

A furious Trump was responding Monday to the raid earlier in the day on Michael Cohen's office. Cohen has said the project went nowhere and was unrelated to Trump's candidacy.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, speaks to the media with an announcement that the office of special counsel Robert Mueller says a grand jury has charged 13 Russian nationals and several Russian entities, Friday, Feb. 16, 2018, in Washington. In a statement, he said, "The decision by the US Attorney's office in NY to conduct their investigation using search warrants is completely inappropriate and unnecessary".
