The FBI raided the offices, home and hotel rooms of President Trump's personal lawyer Michael Cohen. Speculation what provoked such an aggressive and unorthodox measure ranges from fake news to the utter trivial. We know it had nothing to with the Russia probe. Michael Cohen severed his connection with Trump over a year ago. It has nothing to do with Trump or even lawyer-client privilege.

May 4. 2018 Chris Wallace: "The documents indicated that, in fact, the President Trump had reimbursed Michael Cohen for the payment to Stormy Daniels."

UPDATE: Fox News' Chris Wallace just broke what's up with Rudy Giuliani bringing up the stunner that the President has reimbursed his lawyer for the Stormy Daniels payment. The evidence was scooped up in the raid and is bound to come out sooner or later. Tactically it is far better to control the message now, than having to do damage limitation when the truth is revealed. It was a controlled revelation. But, it is irrelevant to the case! As a former chairman of the FEC explained yesterday in Laura Ingraham's program (video), there is no question that this is a private expense. Campaign expenses are only deemed campaign expenses if they would not have been made privately. These would! Avenatti can be pound sand. And then there is the small matter of NBC's fake news. Exposing wire taps is illegal anyway.
