Special counsel Robert Mueller took his “Russian collusion” mandated-investigation to a new level when he ordered the DOJ to raid President Trump’s attorney’s office to obtain the personal correspondence of lawyer and client.
(WASHINGTON) — Federal agents on Monday raided the office of President Donald Trump’s personal attorney Michael Cohen, seizing records on topics including a $130,000 payment made to a porn actress who says she had sex with Trump more than a decade ago. The raid on Cohen’s office was done by the U.S. Attorney’s office in Manhattan and was based at least partly on a referral from special counsel Robert Mueller, according to Cohen’s lawyer, Stephen Ryan.
“The decision by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in New York to conduct their investigation using search warrants is completely inappropriate and unnecessary,” Ryan said in a statement. “It resulted in the unnecessary seizure of protected attorney client communications between a lawyer and his clients.”

Aside from the fact new precedence has been set, a federal employee can now order the seizure of protected attorney-client privileged communications and obtain them, and Mueller has also proven (after all the months of searching) he has NOTHING to show for the millions of dollars to pay Democrat lawyers to find anything linking Donald Trump’s election to any kind of collusion with the Russians.
If Cohen lied to obtain credit from a federally insured financial institution, that is a felony punishable by up to 30 years’ imprisonment.
Not like this is yet another malicious attempt by Mueller to get a “witness” to turn on someone who is NOT a “target”.
And because the payment was likely an in-kind contribution to the Trump campaign, it could constitute a willful violation of campaign contribution limits, a separate felony punishable by up to five years’ imprisonment. That the investigation of Cohen was apparently referred by special counsel Robert Mueller to the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York—a Trump appointee—is an early indication that at this point, the matter is not directly related to the Russia investigation.

Just wait for the leaks you KNOW will be forthcoming on Michael Cohen’s clients and cases, but we’re dealing with an arrogant special counsel who has a history of botching cases, ruining the lives of the innocent, and weaseling out of responsibility.
2017: Robert Mueller is a Hothead Who Can’t Own Up to His Mistakes, Former Aides Say
Those interviewed [by the Los Angeles Times] criticized Mueller’s handling of many high-profile cases stretching back to 1979, his temperament with government witnesses, and for directing his subordinates at the FBI to shield him from criticism.
Mueller knows the irrational, violence-prone Democrat left has been salivating for proof that the election was stolen from their superior candidate, Hillary Clinton. Mueller knows that after all of these months, should he conclude his investigation without busting Donald Trump, the left will target him, harass him and his family, deny him access to the social circles and employment opportunities (paid media punditry, book deals, etc.), and his name will become a nasty verb. And seeing how he knows he has nothing, there’s only one option left so Mueller can save what little face he has left: perform acts so egregious, President Trump will get someone to fire him.
That way, Mueller can play the victim, the left and the media can scream obstruction-of-justice and Hillary remains protected; that is, until the Inspector General’s report is released.
