The president denies having had any sexual relationship with either woman.
The search warrants served Monday on Cohen's Rockefeller Center office and home sought his personal financial information and client communications, including records related to Daniels, who was paid $130,000 by the Trump lawyer just days before the 2016 election in what she described as an effort to buy her silence.
Senior members of the U.S. Congress have repeatedly urged Trump not to fire the special counsel.
As if on cue, The Hill reported, also on Monday, that Trump was floating the idea of firing Mueller. The legal advisers also believe they have successfully argued to the American public that the Federal Bureau of Investigation is tainted and think they can make the same case against Rosenstein. "I think it's disgraceful and so do a lot of other people. He should be allowed to finish the job he was assigned".
According to Watergate veteran Carl Bernstein, President Donald Trump's remarks in the aftermath of the Federal Bureau of Investigation raid on his attorney Michael Cohen Monday prove he could care less about upholding the law.
"This investigation is closing in on him and the prosecutors in NY now have his lawyer's computers and what is on them", Bernstein said.
A spokesperson for the U.S. Attorney's Office in the Southern District of NY declined Fox News' request for comment. In private, The Washington Post reported, he "stewed all afternoon about the warrant to seize Cohen's records, at times raising his voice" (I'll bet).
Before Bernstein's CNN appearance, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters that Trump "has the power" to fire Mueller and reiterated the president's assertion that the raid was an "attack on our country".
Trump's advisers have spent the last 24 hours trying to convince the president not to make an impulsive decision that could put the president in more legal jeopardy and ignite a controversy that could consume his presidency, several people close to Trump said.
Grassley, an Iowa Republican, says he has confidence in Mueller and Trump should, too, adding: "It would be suicide for the president to want to talk about firing Mueller".
The President's animosity towards Mueller reached its highest point yet on Tuesday, a person familiar with the President's thinking said. Trump says he did not know about the payment and that he still does not know where Cohen got the money.
The FBI raid involved a dozen agents and included the hotel where Cohen has been living, according to a source that spoke to CNN. "This is a pure and simple witch hunt". Cohen has said he threw away the plan, given to him by a former Trump business partner.
Avenatti also enclosed an email showing Cohen had used his Trump Organization email address in correspondence with a representative from First Republic. McDougal said she and Trump had an extended affair from 2006-2007, and Daniels said she also had sex with Trump in 2006 and alleged she was later threatened to stay quiet about it.
And by the way, those raids on Cohen's office?
As it happens, attorney-client privilege isn't dead. They say it does not appear to be directly linked to the so-called Russian Federation investigation led by special counsel Robert Mueller.
It wasn't just on Twitter where Trump railed against the raid.
On Tuesday, the Wall Street Journal also reported that federal prosecutors in NY had asked the president's namesake company, the Trump Organization, to turn over any documents it had related to the $130,000 payment to Daniels.
In a somewhat rambling statement, Trump then invoked Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who appointed Mueller and oversees the special counsel investigation.
Cohen's lawyer, Stephen Ryan, condemned the raids, saying the federal agents "seized the privileged communications between my client, Michael Cohen, and his clients".
