Federal agents raid office of Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen

April 9, 2018 4:51 pm

U.S. federal agents carrying court-authorized search warrants have seized documents from U.S. President Donald Trump’s personal attorney Michael Cohen.


That’s according to a statement from Cohen’s attorney, Stephen Ryan. He said the search warrants were executed by the office of the U.S. Attorney for Southern District of New York but they are “in part” related to special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.


Ryan said agents seized “protected attorney client communications.” He did not elaborate on the contents. Ryan said the use of the search warrants is “completely inappropriate and unnecessary.”


Cohen is Trump’s longtime personal lawyer. He has been under heavy public scrutiny in recent months for his payment of $130,000 US to porn star Stormy Daniels, who claims to have had an affair with Trump in the mid-2000s.
