Federal agents carrying court-authorized search warrants have seized documents from Cohen according to a statement from Cohen’s attorney, Stephen Ryan.

President Trump is blasting the special counsel as a “total witch hunt” after prosecutors raided the office of his personal attorney.
According to a new report from the New York Times, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein gave the green light to federal prosecutors to raid the office, home, and hotel room of Attorney Michael Cohen.
The FBI reportedly seized emails, tax documents, and records relating to payments made to adult film star Stormy Daniels.
This comes as New York attorney and close ally of President Trump Geoffrey Berman recused himself from the Cohen investigation.
According to sources, Berman was not a part of the decision to approve the raids due to his recusal.
Cohen’s office was picked apart on Monday while he fully cooperated with authorities, although, he deemed the whole situation as unnecessary.
Some reports say the feds discovered a $130,000 payment.
“It’s a disgrace, it’s frankly a real disgrace,” said President Trump. “It’s an attack on our country in a true sense, it’s an attack on what we all stand for, so when I saw this, when I heard it…I said that is really now in a whole new level of unfairness.”
In a tweet Tuesday, the president claimed that “attorney-client privilege is dead.”

He went on to call the incident an attack on American democracy.
