According to the BBC, Michael Cohen’s office has been raided by the FBI following a “referral” from Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Documents seized contained “privileged communications” between Mr Cohen and his clients, including documentation around a payment to Stephanie Clifford, a.k.a. Stormy Daniels – a payment Donald Trump has repeatedly denied, as recently as last week.
Cohen’s own lawyer, Stephen Ryan said, “Today the US Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York executed a series of search warrants and seized the privileged communications between my client, Michael Cohen, and his clients.” Of course, Ryan described the raid as “inappropriate and unnecessary”.
Looks like the walls are closing in on Trump and his cronies.
Oh snap! Update: Looks like the raid included his house and a hotel room:
