This week the tabloids and the national newspapers united on headlines after Mueller’s FBI investigation raided the office of President Trump’s attorney, Michael Cohen.
The raid resulted in the seizure of emails, tax documents, and other records related to the payment to Stormy Daniels, the actress in some of those not-so-silver-screen flicks.
Having found nothing of substance with which to hang the president, Mueller is going rogue using tabloid covers as cause for the ongoing investigation.
Somewhere there’s got to be a link between Stormy and Russia. Maybe she drank a White Russian once in the bar at Trump Tower.
Here’s more from The Hill…
The FBI on Monday raided the office of President Trump‘s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, and seized emails, tax documents and records related to his payment to adult-film star Stormy Daniels.
Cohen’s lawyer, Stephen Ryan, said in a statement that federal prosecutors in Manhattan obtained a search warrant after receiving a referral “in part” from special counsel Robert Mueller. Ryan called the search “completely inappropriate and unnecessary.”
The New York Times reported that the payment to Daniels is just one of “many topics” being looked at by the FBI.
Other seized documents include business records and communications between Cohen and Trump, but the raid does not appear to be directly connected to Mueller’s probe of Russian meddling in the 2016 election, according to The Times.
Among the materials agents secured are those related to Cohen’s $130,000 payment to Daniels as part of a nondisclosure agreement related to her alleged 2006 affair with Trump.
