FBI raids the offices of President Trump’s personal lawyer

FBI agents on Monday raided the New York offices of President Donald Trump's longtime personal lawyer Michael Cohen
Cohen has been Trump's personal lawyer and confidant for years, advising him on real estate and personal matters, as well as supporting him since he became president.

Cohen’s attorney Stephen Ryan said agents seized privileged communications  between Cohen and Cohen’s clients, in part based on a request from Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating links between Russia and the Trump campaign .

Ryan lashed out at prosecutors over the raid, which came as Mueller seeks to interview Trump for his sprawling investigation .

He said “The decision by the US attorney ’ s office in New York to conduct their investigation using search warrants is completely inappropriate and unnecessary. It resulted in the unnecessary seizure of protected attorney - client communications between a lawyer and his clients . ”
