FBI raids Trump's lawyer: Will he fire Mueller?

fter the FBI raided the office and hotel room of President Donald Trump's personal attorney Michael Cohen on Monday, some conservative pundits and the president are crying foul over the sanctity of attorney-client privilege. USA Today has a look at why the raid is unusual and the hurdles investigators had to clear to get a search warrant. The Washington Post also has analysis of how and why the FBI was able to execute the search. As you may know, Cohen is at the center of a controversy over the payment of $130,000 to adult film star Stormy Daniels, with whom Trump is alleged to have had an affair. CNN legal analyst and former prosecutor Paul Callan calls the raid "a stunning move," as well as "extraordinarily unusual and highly aggressive." The president raged after hearing the news, leading some analysts to speculate whether Trump will fire special prosecutor Robert Mueller or others in the Justice Department. CNN quoted the president:

"Why don't I just fire Mueller? Well, I think it's a disgrace what's going on. We'll see what happens," he said, making sure to repeat the question for the cameras. "And many people have said, you should fire him."

One former US attorney told The Washington Post that the raid is like "dropping a bomb on Trump's front porch." For the latest developments, follow The Trial Lawyer magazine on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.
