    FBI raid Michael Cohen's offices in New York

    For c 10 years Michael Cohen has been the Trump Org's top lawyer, but more recently he has been Trump's "personal lawyer"

    The SDNY raided him after a Mueller referral:
    RTE -Cohen Raided
    The raids took place at 3 locations, removing 10 boxes of documents, recordings, as well as 10+ digital devices. Multiple Cohen email accounts were tapped for the past few months

    Cohen had peculiar Ukrainian/Russian links before joining Trump Org

    Rolling Stone - A Brief History of Michael Cohen's Criminal Ties
    From the Russian mob to money launderers, Trump's personal attorney has long been a subject of interest to federal investigators
    This too is Mob related

    Buzzfeed- Why Trump’s Lawyer Was Sued Over $350,000 He Says He Doesn’t Remember Cashing

    This shows the raid scope is much wider than recent payoffs

    McKay says the warrant is specific to material in some cases for certain subjects from Jan 1, 2013 onward and for others for material concerning events that are post-2011.
    Thus things like this are in scope:
    Trump associate Cohen's own real estate deals raise questions | McClatchy Washington Bureau
    In 2014, a mysterious buyer using a limited liability company that hid the purchaser’s identity paid $10 million in cash for a small apartment building on New York’s lower east side that Cohen had purchased just three years before for $2 million. The handsome appreciation came despite the fact that the assessed value of the property, at 172 Rivington St., hardly budged in these years, hovering around the price Cohen paid for it.
    This gives a sense of how Cohen links to the seperate Muller probe:

    Exclusive: Mueller probe wides to Trump Org foreign deals | McClatchy Washington Bureau

    Then with Trump he was heavily involved with Felix Sater for the Trump Moscow supposed deal c end 2015: NYT - Trump Associate Boasted That Moscow Business Deal ‘Will Get Donald Elected’

    ...and the supposed Ukrainian peace deal c start 2017: London Independent -Ukranian businessman with links to Donald Trump and Russia dies in unexplained circumstances

    He also gave away $130k to a porn star Stormy Daniels in very odd circumstances...and the lawyer Keith Davidson crops up a lot (Broidy, McDougal... )

    Methinks Cohen is finally in a lot of trouble

    How do you get this news so quickly?

    FBI must have something big. They wouldn't risk looking like fools.
