FBI raids office of Trump’s long-time lawyer: Reports

Washington, April 10: The FBI on Monday raided the office of Michael Cohen, US President Dold Trump’s persol lawyer, seizing documents related to topics including his payment to an adult film actress, according to US media. The New York Times reported that federal prosecutors in Manhattan obtained a search warrant after receiving a referral from special counsel Robert Mueller, but the raid does not appear to be directly related to Mueller’s investigation.  The seized documents also reportedly include emails, tax documents, business records and communications between Cohen and Trump, reports Xinhua. Cohen’s lawyer, Stephen Ryan, told The Times that the search was “completely ippropriate and unnecessary.” IANS
