Bob Mueller Raids the Office of Donald Trump's Personal Attorney, Michael Cohen

The NYTimes is reporting that the FBI has raided the office of Michael Cohen, Trump’s personal attorney.

The F.B.I. on Monday raided the office of President Trump’s longtime personal lawyer, Michael D. Cohen, seizing records related to several topics including payments to a pornographic-film actress.

Federal prosecutors in Manhattan obtained the search warrant after receiving a referral from the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, according to Mr. Cohen’s lawyer, who called the search “completely inappropriate and unnecessary.” The search does not appear to be directly related to Mr. Mueller’s investigation, but likely resulted from information he had uncovered and gave to prosecutors in New York.

Look: We don’t really know what this means, but I can tell you this much: It’s not good for Michael Cohen, and it’s probably not great for Donald Trump himself. Cohen, recall, is Trump’s legal goon: The guy who pays off porn stars and tries to silence his critics via lawsuits. Last week, Donald Trump also told reporters that he didn’t know about the NDA that he made Stormy Daniels sign, which might for the basis for fraud.

Anyway, recall that the most high-profile raid of someone in Trump’s inner circle, Paul Manafort, who is now facing criminal charges that could put him away from the rest of his life. This is not nothing. Cohen’s office, by the way, is in Trump Tower, and they apparently raided his office, hotel room, and home.
