Donald Trump tweets in furious reply after FBI raids lawyer's office

He is busy at work churning through the massive amount of information that he must get through on a regular basis to work his way towards his goals in the investigation. Could it have something to do with the Stormy Daniels case?

Ryan also told the Times that the search was conducted after receiving a referral from special counsel Robert Mueller. "And I thanked them at the conclusion", Cohen told CNN.

The scandal has since snowballed and entangled the President and one of his closest allies - Cohen, his personal legal counsel. He has been described as the president's "fixer" and "pitbull".

CNN stated that the FBI was looking for documents pertaining to Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal.

"If so, confidentiality rules do not apply", she said. "And I think that this is the first significant domino to fall". In other words, Donald Trump messed around and accidentally hired people who are loyal to their job descriptions and not to their boss.

A warrant requires high-level approval within the Justice Department, and agency guidelines impose additional hurdles when the search target is an attorney.

Stephen Ryan, Cohen's lawyer, said the FBI seized "privileged communications" between Cohen and his clients.

The sensitive nature of seizing a lawyer's files points to the significance of the evidence presented to Rosenstein.

The raid on Cohen's office and a hotel room is not related to the Mueller investigation into possible collusion between Trump's 2016 presidential campaign and Russia.

"It's a disgraceful situation", he said, describing the raid as "an attack on what we all stand for". (AMI), which owns the National Enquirer.

Such an order would be sought to stop the government from using seized materials, according to a person familiar with the investigation.

The fraud claims prompted speculation that he may have misled banks over the reason for the large payment, made shortly before the president won the 2016 US election.

Michael Avenatti, Daniels' attorney, responded to the news on Twitter, saying "an enormous amount of misplaced faith has been placed" on Cohen's shoulders.

"Plaintiff herself has repeatedly and specifically denied having any intimate relationship with Mr Trump, on at least three occasions", Cohen said in the filing, citing denials Clifford made in 2011 and twice in January 2018.

Mueller's team did not immediately respond to the accusations.

"It's a real disgrace", Mr Trump said.

But Cohen said he was unhappy to have his office and residences raided, and he is worried about the federal investigation. He also praised the FBI agents who carried out the search as "professional, courteous and respectful".
