UPDATE: Multiple sources have confirmed to People’s Pundit Daily that Michael Cohen is under investigation for campaign finance violations and bank fraud.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) on Monday raided the office of Michael Cohen, the longtime personal lawyer to President Donald Trump. The U.S. Attorney in the Southern District of New York obtained the search warrant after receiving a referral from the Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

“Today the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York executed a series of search warrants and seized the privileged communications between my client, Michael Cohen, and his clients,” said Stephen Ryan, his lawyer. “I have been advised by federal prosecutors that the New York action is, in part, a referral by the Office of Special Counsel, Robert Mueller.”

Mr. Cohen recently said he paid $130,000 to a pornographic-film actress, Stephanie Clifford, who claims to have had an affair with President Trump. Ms. Clifford is known as Stormy Daniels. Mr. Ryan said his client has cooperated with authorities and turned over thousands of documents to congressional investigators, who were allegedly looking into Russian election meddling.

But a person briefed on the search told The New York Times that the payments to Ms. Clifford are only one of several topics being investigated. The FBI also seized emails, tax documents and business records.

“I believe the damage Robert Mueller and these people have done to the body politic with these police state tactics is irreversible,” he said.

Worth noting, the records include privileged communications between President Trump and Mr. Cohen. A special team of agents will likely need to review those documents, which are typically protected from scrutiny.

Meanwhile, multiple sources tell People’s Pundit Daily (PPD) that this will not be the last referral from the special counsel, who has been investigating everything but alleged “collusion” between the Trump campaign and Russia.

    What a joke. Washed up porn trash vs. President of the United States.! This so called hush money was in all probability given by Trump’ s attorneys personal funds and not campaign funds in an attempt to stop her accusations .. True or not we all know if that were to come out week’s before election that’s all the media would run with in an attempt to discredit Trump.. FBI is a joke.. Investigate the President but thieving, murdering Hillary and her treasonous cronies slip by unscathed.. Thousands of confidential, top secret emails destroyed, Clinton foundation theft of funds.. etc. Unprecedented governmental behavior to say the least.!

      Amen! All these actual criminals skate right on by, but they’ll destroy attorney-client privilege in this country to take down a duly-elected President of the United States. All because they don’t want him to take out their trash. Disgusting corruption and it’s going to lead to violence.

      Where was the FBI when they were repeatedly warned about that lunatic kid that murdered all those innocent school children. Truth of the matter is that all the libtards and the demos are outraged that Trump is making every attempt to drain the corrupt swamp of a government that we have now. I would not be surprised if this whole Stormy Daniels issue was endorsed and funded by that group.

      Rich Baris I definitely think it is. Wouldn’t be shocked if he had ex parte communications with someone on Mueller’s team. Listen to her lawyer. He’s either Nostradamus with a crystal ball or it was a setup from the beginning, just like the fake FISA warrant. They’re spying on Trump and meanwhile maniacs are shooting up schools and terrorists are grooming their kids to kill gay people at clubs.
