F.B.I. Raids Office of Trump’s Longtime Lawyer Michael Cohen; Trump Calls It ‘Disgraceful’ https://www.nytimes.com/2018/04/09/us... By MATT APUZZO APRIL 9, 2018 “That is really now on a whole new level of unfairness,” Mr. Trump said. Mr. Cohen’s lawyer, Stephen Ryan, confirmed the raids. “Today, the U.S. attorney’s office for the Southern District of New York executed a series of search warrants and seized the privileged communications between my client, Michael Cohen, and his clients,” Mr. Ryan said. “I have been advised by federal prosecutors that the New York action is, in part, a referral by the office of special counsel, Robert Mueller.” To obtain a search warrant, prosecutors must convince a federal judge that agents are likely to discover evidence of criminal activity.
