Former FBI Assistant Director: Cohen Could Go to Prison for Decades

The letter demanded they preserve all emails by Cohen that mention Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, as well as any emails and text messages related to the alleged relationship. It's not. It's highly unsafe, and not just for Cohen.

"This could be primarily about Stormy Daniels", he said.

Michael Cohen's attorney Stephen Ryan calling raid completely inappropriate and unnecessary. "It's a total witch hunt".

"We're in serious territory", said Walter Shaub, who was the head of the Office of Government Ethics under Trump and President Barack Obama.

A taint team made up of lawyers who are not involved in the underlying investigation will nearly certainly be put in place to review the materials obtained in the raid before those materials are handed over to the prosecutorial team.

"This latest admission by Cohen and the circumstances behind it requires a full investigation by the FEC and the Department of Justice", the organization said in a statement.

Trump's advisers have spent the last 24 hours trying to convince the president not to make an impulsive decision that could put the president in more legal jeopardy and ignite a controversy that could consume his presidency, several people close to Trump said. Trump has indeed been calling the Russian Federation investigation a witch hunt "for a long time". "Fire Rosenstein. Fire Marc Short". The New York Times first reported Monday's raid. Trump is now again telling associates that he is frustrated with Rosenstein, according to one official familiar with the conversations. He would have had to have very specific evidence showing that Cohen had committed a crime or crimes, and he would have to present that evidence in detail to all concerned: to Rosentstein, to the Criminal Division, to the USA attorney's office, and to the judge who ultimately issued the warrant.

The F-16 production line will be used to service the orders from the Indian Air Force, as well as any follow-on global orders. The NDA Government finally scrapped the proposed deal in 2014 and opted for buying 36 Rafales off the shelf from France.

Federal agents raided Mr. Cohen's office in Manhattan on Monday, an aggressive move authorized by a judge and approved by top officials at the U.S. Justice Department. Investigators are reportedly looking into the $130,000 "hush money" payment Cohen made to porn actress Stormy Daniels before the election; whether the raid is at all tied to the Russian Federation investigation isn't clear at this point. In fact, the special counsel was technically not in charge of the raid, which was carried out under the direction of the office of the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of NY.

He condemned Mueller's investigation as "a pure and simple witch hunt" and reminded reporters that many people had suggested that he fire the Special Counsel.

"When I saw this and when I heard it - I heard it like you did - I said, that is really now on a whole new level of unfairness", the president continued.

"This investigation is closing in on him and the prosecutors in NY now have his lawyer's computers and what is on them", Bernstein said.

Asked on Monday after the Federal Bureau of Investigation raids if he would fire Mueller, Trump replied, "We'll see what happens".

That sparked reactions from leaders in Congress. Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) told CNN that firing Mueller would be catastrophic for Trump. "And I think it is actually important to focus on where he described this as an attack on our country". "So he made what I consider to be a very awful mistake for the country, but you'll figure that out". If communications typically covered by attorney-client privilege are deemed to be "in furtherance of a current or a planned crime or fraud" then the privilege does not apply.
