Stormy Daniels cooperating with feds probing Trump's attorney

President Donald Trump speaks during a meeting with senior military leadership in the Cabinet Room of the White House in Washington

While the search was overseen by the U.S. attorney's office in the Southern District of New York, the lawyers regard it as a direct extension of Mueller's investigation.

The raid also raised questions about the attorney-client privilege; federal agents typically need special permission to search the files of a lawyer.

In his interview, Lemon asked Cohen if he was worried in light of the raid. We are cooperating with law enforcement on multiple fronts.

The alleged hush money also speaks to one of the possible charges Trump's lawyer could face, which is violating campaign finance regulations. A warrant requires high-level approval within the Justice Department, and agency guidelines impose additional hurdles when the search target is an attorney.

That sparked reactions from leaders in Congress. Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) told CNN that firing Mueller would be catastrophic for Trump. In this case, because Jeff Sessions is recused, Deputy AG Rosenstein has the power.

After the public release of the recording in October 2016, Trump dismissed his comments as "locker room talk". "It shows he's devastated and angry".

This week, federal agents raided the office and private residence of Michael Cohen. "No. Do I want to be involved in this? No".

The raids of Cohen's offices and home are a clear indication that the establishment is doubling down on the witch hunt and that it is escalating. Cohen has admitted to personally paying Clifford to keep her quiet about an alleged 2007 affair she had with Donald Trump.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg arrives to testify before a joint hearing of the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee and Senate Judiciary Committee on Capitol Hill, April 10, 2018. The White House later acknowledged there weren't any tapes. Daniels' team has had extensive communications with federal investigators, said the third person familiar with the investigation.

If you had to pick two adjectives to describe Michael Cohen, you could choose worse than "loyal" and "belligerent".

"Attorney Bruce Marks from the law firm Marks & Sokolov stated that a search of attorneys' offices is "bizarre", because most of their materials are privileged".

Belligerent to, well, almost anyone who gets in his or Trump's way, it can seem. Agents also reportedly seized documents related to a $130,000 payment Cohen made to adult film star Stephanie Clifford, also known as Stormy Daniels. Cohen is Donald Trump's longtime personal lawyer.

Robert Massa, senior vice president of enrollment and institutional planning at Drew University in New Jersey, says the practice is about holding early-admission students accountable.

McDougal was paid $150,000 in the summer of 2016 by the parent company of the National Enquirer under an agreement that gave it the exclusive rights to her story, which it never published. "If you do something wrong, I'm going to come at you, grab you by the neck and I'm not going to let you go until I'm finished".
