Michael Cohen Speaks Out After FBI Raid

Sean Hannity discusses special counsel Robert s Mueller III during his Fox News show on April 11

The U.S. attorney's office had no comment.

The veteran prosecutor, a former FBI director, is seeking to interview Trump, but has not said the president is a target in the investigation.

At the Justice Department, meanwhile, some officials made a point of watching Trump's comments on television after the Cohen raid, looking for any hint that his rage this time would lead to consequences beyond a few angry tweets.

"We'll see what may happen", Mr Trump said on Monday. Cohen arranged the Daniels payment in the final weeks of the presidential campaign. He is maintaining his innocence.

The new details on the Cohen raid, first reported by The New York Times, emerged as the president boiled over on Twitter about it and amid evidence that investigators are zeroing in on his inner circle.

If Cohen acted on his own to pay Daniels, Super said, "then there's no attorney-client privilege, which may have made (the FBI) more comfortable doing this raid".

Watchdog groups, including Common Cause, had lodged complaints with Justice Department and the Federal Election Commission about the Daniels' payment months before Avenatti's lawsuit. Daniels said that his admission voided her NDA, and she sued for the right to tell her story. But he indicated in a late afternoon tweet Tuesday that he and his client would "fully cooperate with any search for the truth".

"Cohen is in a legal dispute over a hush agreement Daniels signed before the 2016 campaign to keep quiet about the alleged affair".

A search by the authorities of an attorney's office and seizing of legal documents is a rare event, but nevertheless possible if the attorney is being investigated, two legal advisors told Sputnik on Tuesday commenting on the Federal Bureau of Investigation raid a day earlier of President Donald Trump's attorney Michael Cohen's office.

Kim Jong-un breaks silence on talks with Donald Trump
Kim's remarks on Monday break that public silence, although he did not specifically refer to a summit with Trump. DPRK is the acronym for the North's formal name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

Both women say they were paid to keep quiet about having had sex with Trump.

The interim U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of NY is Geoffrey S. Berman, who was appointed by Attorney General Jeff Sessions and is reportedly recused from the investigation.

Cohen has denied any wrongdoing.

The special counsel is also probing a $150 000 payment Ukrainian billionaire steel magnate Victor Pinchuk made during the U.S. presidential campaign to Trump's foundation for the American real estate developer to give a 20-minute speech via video link, according to The New York Times.

"Many people have said you should fire him".

Michael Cohen "is a very smart person", Trump told the New York Post in 2007. "I am entirely confident that his decision-making is the result of thoughtful and careful consideration of every issue that comes before him". "He should be allowed to finish the job he was assigned".

That's according to press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who said Tuesday that Trump "certainly believes that he has the power" to fire Mueller.

The raid was "upsetting to say the least", he added.

Under Justice Department regulations, Mueller must consult with Rosenstein when his investigators uncover new evidence that may fall outside his original mandate. "When I heard that he'd actually spoken to Don Lemon, I didn't believe it until I saw Don's report".

Deutsche Bank boss John Cryan to step down
Sewing, 47, is now a vice president at Germany's biggest bank and head of its private and commercial banking division. The division employed more than 41,000 staff at the end of 2017, up 4 percent from 2015, but key staff have left.

Grassley, an Iowa Republican, says he has confidence in Mueller and Trump should, too, adding: "It would be suicide for the president to want to talk about firing Mueller".

The President has not yet formally nominated Berman in advance of his interim position's expiration next month and Berman does not have the support of his two home state senators, government sources said.

White House attorney Ty Cobb and White House Counsel Donald McGahn have repeatedly sought to dissuade Trump from firing Mueller and renewed their efforts after the raids, two USA officials familiar with the discussions told Reuters.

Trump is fuming after federal agents raised his personal attorney's office in NY.

Within the president's orbit, people described Trump as furious and "lit up" by the recent developments and floating a trial balloon to test the boundaries of trying to halt Mueller's burgeoning probe.

The American president called it a "disgrace" that the agents targeted Michael Cohen, who has admitted paying a porn star $130,000 after claims she had an affair with his powerful employer.

Last week, Trump broke his silence over the payment to Stormy Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, denying he paid her hush money through his attorney and insisting he did not know why Cohen made the payment.

The raid made the effort more hard because of Trump's anger over the raids, all three officials said.
