The Mueller Sharks Continue to Circle

Posted on Apr 9, 2018 in Business Litigation

This afternoon, the FBI raided the office of President Trump’s longtime attorney Michael Cohen, a key figure in legal matters including the payment to a porn star actress and the Russian election investigation. Apparently agents seized documents using several search warrants after a referral by Special Counsel Robert Mueller and the AUSA in New York. The raid makes it clear that the FBI, working with the federal prosecutors in New York are seriously looking into Cohen’s actions. While he may or may not be the focus of the investigation, rumors begin to swirl. Cohen paid $130,000 to Stormy Daniels to silence her from disclosing the affair she had with the President. The payment, which may have violated election laws, was apparently made by Cohen without Trump’s knowledge. Trump continues to deny the affair and recently even denied there was a payment.
