Trump brands raid on lawyer Michael Cohen’s office ‘disgraceful’

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. Cohen has been in headlines for weeks because of his role paying porn star Stormy Daniels $130,000 just before the election for her silence on an alleged affair with Trump. But on Monday the heat was turned up even more when the FBI raided his home, office and hotel room, seizing records which pertained to the Daniels payment and other matters, according to the New York Times. To conduct a raid on an attorney requires several levels of authorization at the Department of Justice, which means “a judge had to have been satisfied that there was probable cause to believe that the attorney-client relationship had a fraudulent or criminal objective,” says Stephen Gillers, professor at the New York University School of Law. “That itself is unusual.”
