MARTIN: Let me ask you, in seconds remaining, what does it mean that this raid originated from special counsel Robert Mueller, but it was an order actually executed by the USA attorney's office in NY and not the Mueller investigation?
In short, while we now know that in the course of their investigation, Mueller and his team have uncovered what they feel is probable cause to investigate potential criminal activity on the part of Michael Cohen, they also believe that such criminal activity does not fall under the mandate of the special counsel's office to prosecute, so they referred the matter to an impartial third-party prosecutor's office. "It's an uncomfortable thing because I see nothing in this Congress, and there's political reasons for this being true, I see nothing in this Congress to suggest that if the president fires the deputy attorney general, fires Bob Mueller in order to stop this investigation ... that this Congress would act", he told CNN's "New Day".
The special counsel's office and Justice Department declined to comment on the searches Monday. The left, federal judges like Amy Berman Jackson, and those establishment Republicans like Senator Chuck Grassley, chair of the Judiciary Committee no less, who just this morning again warned the president not to fire anyone over this latest outrage, should themselves be held to account by We the People. "It's an attack on what we all stand for", Trump said at the White House.
Mueller's probe has led to charges or guilty pleas for several Trump associates, including former campaign manager Paul Manafort and former national security adviser Michael Flynn, for alleged offenses such as money laundering and lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. "You'll have to ask Michael Cohen", Trump said.
The person familiar with the investigation, who wasn't authorized to discuss it and spoke on condition of anonymity, said the probe by the public corruption unit of the U.S. Attorney's office in Manhattan is trying to determine if there was any fraud related to the payments.
Clifford "has boasted that her pay has quadrupled because of the publicity of the instant lawsuit and her allegations about Mr Trump in February 2018", the filing says. The law firm does not represent Cohen or Trump. He met with his lawyers at the White House Tuesday to discuss the FBI raid, which has confirmed their worst fears - that the Mueller investigation is mushrooming well beyond campaign collusion with Russian Federation. They only keep looking at us, he said.
Blumenthal also said that for a raid such as the one carried out against Cohen, the USA attorney would have to meet a burden higher than probable cause, convincing the Justice Department that the raid would yield "very significant evidence of a crime".
Berman, a former law partner at Rudy Giuliani's firm, was personally interviewed for the gig by Trump a year ago. The focus of Mueller's investigation is not about Trump and Russian Federation, but about tearing apart the lives of the President and anyone associated with him, and this effort he has been facilitated and protected by Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein. "I've given over a million pages in documents to the special counsel", Trump said, visibly angered by the development, though he insisted he is not concerned with what the Federal Bureau of Investigation might uncover.
Cohen, who has been described as Trump's "fixer", says he's not thrilled about what might come next.
Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, has said she also had a sexual relationship with Trump in 2006.
