The other woman central to the Federal Bureau of Investigation raid on Trump's lawyer

Any payment facilitated on behalf of the Trump campaign could be considered a violation of campaign finance laws, which then set the individual contribution limit at $2,700. As Bloomberg reported Monday, the impetus for the warrant was circuitous: Mueller brought information he had uncovered about Cohen to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who was put in charge of the Trump-Russia probe following Attorney General Jeff Sessions's recusal a year ago, and then Rosenstein made a referral to the S.D.New York.

Trump slammed the move as a "disgraceful situation" and "an attack on our country", reports CNN. They spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the confidential details. And I will tell you, no, I have not. Ms. Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, is a porn star who said she had an affair with Mr. Trump and who was paid US$130,000 from an account controlled by Mr. Cohen days before the 2016 presidential election.

Former prosecutors said by conducting that raid, federal investigators must have had significant evidence on Cohen - and he could be a legal target.

"What do you call a lawyer who graduated with a 2.0?" The New York Times first reported the connection to the tape.

It is just impossible to believe that the tape not coming out at the start of Trump's campaign, when logic dictates that it would have blown Trump instantly out of the water (before he was in a position where Republicans had no choice other than to keep backing him against the evil Hillary Clinton), was anything but a highly unethical political decision by someone at NBC. Later, he sent an email to Russian President Vladimir Putin's chief spokesman seeking help to advance the stalled project.

After he viewed the program, Trump told advisers he wanted to get rid of officials in the Department of Justice who were working against him, including Attorney General Jeff Sessions.


But news of the Cohen raid threw him over the edge.

The FBI was also looking for information about the $150,000 payment made by the publisher of the National Enquirer, American Media Inc. -whose owner is friends with the president-to former Playboy model Karen McDougal. The magazine never ran the story, saying it paid McDougal to write fitness columns instead. "But I will tell you that members of the Federal Bureau of Investigation that conducted the search and seizure were all extremely professional, courteous and respectful", he told CNN. He stood by his claim that the payment to Daniels was perfectly legal but said he would "rethink how he handled the payments" because of the impact on his family.

The interim U.S. Attorney in Manhattan, Geoffrey Berman, who would ordinarily be overseeing the investigation, has been recused from involvement, leaving his top deputy, Robert Khuzami, in charge of the probe.

It is unknown if Cohen recorded conversations between himself and Trump, the newspaper said.

This information reveals how extensively the Federal Bureau of Investigation is reviewing Cohen's job as a fixer for Trump as well as his own personal financial entanglements.

We also know that a search warrant, unlike a grand jury subpoena, requires prosecutors to go before a federal judge to demonstrate probable cause that a crime has been committed and evidence of that crime can be found in the premises to be searched. "If I was Trump, that would be my biggest concern".
