Federal authorities say that the investigation of President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen is not even related to President Trump.
This latest development casts further doubt on the entire “Obamagate”-related investigations into Trump’s team, making it clear that these investigations are more about bullying Trump’s inner circle and not really about law and order.
Federal prosecutors admitted as much.
USA Today reports: “Federal prosecutors on Friday said President Trump’s personal attorney Michael Cohen is the target of a “months-long” criminal investigation that centers on Cohen’s own business dealings rather than his legal work on Trump’s behalf. The information gathered so far in the probe suggests “that the overwhelming majority of evidence” FBI agents seized from Cohen in a raid this week will not contain privileged attorney-client communications between Cohen and Trump but will relate to Cohen’s “personal business dealings and finances,” federal lawyers said in court documents. The Friday afternoon filing came in response to Cohen’s emergency request to block the Justice Department from using materials the FBI seized earlier this week in an extraordinary raid of his offices, home and hotel room.”
Wow. Not even related to Trump. So when will this whole sordid Deep State affair finally end.
On Monday, the FBI raided the office, and the hotel room of Trump’s longtime lawyer, Michael Cohen. The goal of the raid was to seize business records, emails, and documents related to payments to Stormy Daniels among a number of other topics.
In response, President Donald Trump called the raid “disgraceful” and stated that it was “an attack on our country in a true sense,” and “an attack on what we all stand for.”
While the raid was purported to be about Stormy Daniels, many are speculating that it is another attempt to Special Counsel Robert Mueller to go after Trump in lieu of having an real evidence of his collusion with Russia.
In Trump’s statement, he blasted the “Witch Hunt” he’s been facing since he got elected, and how it is making facing the difficult challenged as President more challenging.
