Trump Calls Raid on Lawyer's Office 'New Level of Unfairness'

Posted April 11, 2018

The nature of this request to overcome attorney-client privilege and get a warrant for Cohen's communication with Trump has spread evidence far beyond Mueller and his team.

"You offer reasons or evidence to support why each one of those things will be found in the location, and why those things are relevant to an ongoing investigation", which means investigators would have had to outline why communications between Trump and Cohen were pertinent to the investigation and possibly did not fall under attorney-client privilege. If approved, Trump would be the very first sitting president deposed because former President Bill Clinton throughout Ken Starr's particular counselor investigation.

Trump then pointed out that Rosenstein had 'signed the FISA warrant, ' referring to the warrant used to spy on the president's campaign associate Carter Page.

McConnell also tells reporters he doesn't believe Mueller will be removed.

That FBI agents were searching Cohen's office for information about the AMI payment to McDougal is particularly notable, as Cohen claims to have had no part in the transaction.

A day after federal agents confiscated electronic devices and documents related to attorney-client matters, Cohen told CNN he is anxious.

Although Mueller's probe is focused on Russian election interference, under law he would need approval from top Justice Department officials if he discovered something else during his investigation that he deemed worth looking into. Attorney General Jeff Sessions named Berman interim USA attorney, although Trump took the unusual step of personally interviewing him for the job. Monday's raid was first reported by The New York Times.

But the fact that Cohen's home and office were raided is not just bad news for Trump, it's an outright disaster. Cohen was previously a lawyer for the Trump Organization, but he left that position in January 2017 and became Trump's personal lawyer.

Then, in early April, governor Mary Fallin approved extra raises between $750 to $2,000, Oklahoma's News 4 reported. Teacher quality is probably the most important starting point in the overall quality of an education system.

Several former officials at the Federal Election Commission have said the payment to Daniels appeared to be a violation of campaign finance laws, and multiple Washington-based groups have filed complaints with the FEC, urging it to investigate.

"We'll see what happens".

The Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday that prosecutors from the U.S. Attorneys' Office in the Southern District of NY requested records of the payment made to Daniels in the weeks leading up to the 2016 presidential election.

The White House has denied there was a sexual relationship.

There were also what one source said were other issues that could be unrelated to Daniels, including smaller investments. She has been suing to invalidate the nondisclosure agreement she signed before the election and has offered to return the money she was paid in order to "set the record straight". He wants the investigation to be over and continues to say everything he did in regards to paying Stormy Daniels for the non-disclosure agreement was perfectly legal.

In his statement, Avenatti says he and Daniels "will fully cooperate with any search for the truth regarding the threats, cover-up and lies concerning the NDA and $130k payment". This was always the greatest danger for Trump, who has spent a lifetime skirting around both the letter and spirit of the law.

AMI spokesman Jon Hammond did not respond to questions about whether the company had been contacted by federal investigators.

"I have been advised by federal prosecutors that the NY action is, in part, a referral by the Office of Special Counsel, Robert Mueller", Ryan said in the statement.
