For federal agents to have searched Cohen's apartment, office, and hotel room, prosecutors must have convinced a judge that a raid was necessary to obtain evidence of a crime that Cohen might have attempted to hide or destroy if he was issued a subpoena.
Moscow has denied US intelligence agencies' findings that it meddled in the 2016 presidential campaign and sought to tilt the race in Trump's favour. And it's a disgraceful situation. "It's a total witch-hunt, I have been saying it for a long time", he told reporters.
Trump thought Cohen-Watnick had begun working at the Justice Department in the fall, but a confidant told the president during a recent phone call that he had not, according to a person briefed on the call. Thank you so much for your time and for helping us understand this.
So far 19 people have been indicted, including the chairman of Trump's campaign and his former national security advisor.
Trump's lawyers are seeking $20-million in damages for Clifford's violations of the agreement. So we know the evidence seized today does not directly relate to Mueller's inquiry into any conspiracy with Russians to influence the election or related crimes such as obstruction of the special counsel's investigation. "No Collusion, so they go insane!"
It is unknown how many people at NBC had access to the tape. "Democrats all, or just about all".
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. "Again they found nothing and in finding nothing that's a big statement", he said.
The warrant's specific reference to Trump is the first known direct mention of the President in a search warrant, and sources said it appeared in connection with "Access Hollywood".
That office, now led by a Trump appointee, approved the raid of Cohen's office on Monday.
A source familiar with the matter said Federal Bureau of Investigation agents were looking in Monday's raids for information on payments to adult-film star Stormy Daniels and former Playboy model Karen McDougal.
Several former officials at the Federal Election Commission have said the payment could have violated campaign finance laws, because it may amount to an unreported campaign donation. More significant, a judge would require evidence of potential illegal behavior between Trump and Cohen before approving the seizure of any communications involving both of them.
Cohen has maintained that Trump was unaware of the arrangement.
McConnell was pressed Tuesday on whether the Senate is doing enough to prevent the possibility of President Donald Trump firing Mueller.
Cohen has said he took out a personal line of credit on his home to pay Daniels days before the 2016 election and without Trump's knowledge.
That's according to press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who said Tuesday that Trump "certainly believes that he has the power" to fire Mueller.
"Neither reimbursed me for the payment, either directly or indirectly", Cohen said. He's described it being an over-reach by prosecutors into the privileged communications between Mr. Cohen and his client, Mr. Trump.
Stephen Ryan, a lawyer for Cohen, said in a statement that the US Attorney's office for the Southern District of NY had executed "a series of search warrants" including at his office, and "seized the privileged communications" between Cohen and his clients.
