F.B.I. Raids Office of Trump’s Longtime Lawyer Michael Cohen

They’re likely looking for Stormy dirt. Remember Mueller must show SOMETHING to his sponsors even if it is completely irrelevant to the reason the special prosecutor was named. Otherwise he leaves official Washington, and remember he is a creature of Washington, with his tail between his legs and bested by Trump. And – that – must – not – happen.

The F.B.I. on Monday raided the office of President Trump’s longtime personal lawyer, Michael D. Cohen, seizing records related to several topics including payments to a pornographic-film actress.

Federal prosecutors in Manhattan obtained the search warrant after receiving a referral from the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, according to Mr. Cohen’s lawyer, who called the search “completely inappropriate and unnecessary.” The search does not appear to be directly related to Mr. Mueller’s investigation, but likely resulted from information he had uncovered and gave to prosecutors in New York.
