Michael Cohen on FBI Raid: ‘Upsetting to Say the Least’

April 12 04:47 2018

Beyond the political and into the realm of the constitutional, the norm of how such a process usually operated has far been exceeded, prompting the president to fume against the FBI’s legally dubious raid, declaring that “Attorney-client privilege is dead!” and calling it a total which hunt.

Asked if Bolton forced Bossert out, Sanders said: “I’m not going to get into specific details about the ongoings of personnel, but I can tell you that he resigned”. AMI has said she was paid to become a fitness columnist.

Cohen has said he took out a home loan to pay porn actress $130,000 weeks ahead of the election to keep quiet about her allegations that Trump had an affair with her while he was married to Melania Trump. “I Don’t Telegraph My Intentions Like Obama Did” told reporters at the White House that he would make a decision in 24-48 hours on US response to Syrian ruler Bashar al-Assad’s weekend gas attack on locals in that country’s eastern region. Mueller’s team is examining possible collusion between Trump’s campaign and Moscow, allegations of corrupt behavior by Trump campaign lieutenants, and of White House efforts to obstruct the investigation. She did not say where the advice came from.

A White House aide said Justice Department guidance that only Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, could fire Mueller did not apply to Trump, who has the authority to fire anyone in the executive branch.

Prosecutors at the US attorney’s office in Manhattan are looking into whether Cohen’s payoffs could have violated federal election laws, as they were issued during the campaign.

“I have been advised by federal prosecutors that the NY action is, in part, a referral by the Office of Special Counsel, Robert Mueller“, Ryan said in the statement.

But nervous White House aides expressed new fears about the president’s unpredictability in the face of the Cohen raid, which he viewed as an assault on a longtime defender and a sign that Mueller’s probe into potential ties between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign was “going too far”.

Stormy Daniels is heading to “The View” next week for her first live TV interview. The payment was made just days before the 2016 presidential election.

To add to Cohen’s laundry list of legal woes, the Daily News reported Wednesday that the presidential fixer owes almost $54,000 in unpaid state taxes for his taxi medallions. The search was authorized by a judge and no evidence suggests it was carried out improperly.

“If police have a warrant to search for a gun and go into a person’s house and find drugs, they can use that evidence”, Wright said.

In this case, Mueller opted to refer the matter to federal prosecutors in Manhattan.

On Monday, FBI agents swarmed Manhattan’s Loews Regency Hotel, where Cohen has been living while his home in being renovated.

Trump accused Mueller on Monday of overseeing a biased investigation staffed by Democrats, “a pure and simple witch-hunt”.

Moreover, U.S. courts have said prosecutors must set up a review process to ensure that attorney-client communications are not being improperly used as evidence.

In order to fall under attorney-client protection, the documents just have to be related to Cohen dispensing legal advice or gathering information in order to give that advice, Litman said.

In addition, prosecutors reportedly are looking at whether Cohen committed bank fraud, along with possible improper campaign donations to the president.

There have been few signs that Mueller was interested in investigating the payment, though.

Daniels says it was part of a deal to prevent her from giving interviews about the supposed affair with married Mr Trump – an allegation that might have cost him votes. Trump denies the affair. Many in the president’s orbit think Rosenstein’s position is now the most endangered if the president decides to take action to try to halt the probe, the people said. The FBI also seized emails, tax documents and business records, including communications between Trump and Cohen. In the email, the representative said funds had been deposited in Cohen’s account.
