Update: NBC is retracting this story. His calls were monitored but not tapped. THANKS A LOT NBC.
NBC is reporting that Michael Cohen’s phones were tapped leading up to and after the raid on his office. At least one phone call with the White House was intercepted. It’s worth noting, too, that Trump called Cohen soon after the raid, and was subsequently told by his attorney, Rudy Guiliani, not to call anymore, for fear that Cohen’s phones were being monitored.
In addition to the tapped phone, Feds also secretly had access to Michael Cohen’s various email accounts. Additionally, according to Michael Avanati, text messages were also intercepted by Feds.
Michael Avenatti says on @MSNBC that he has knowledge that text messages were also intercepted by federal investigators.— Kyle Griffin (@kylegriffin1) May 3, 2018
