President Trump re-evaluating interview with Mueller after Cohen raid

FBI agents raided the New York offices of President Trump's longtime personal lawyer Michael Cohen

But before these claims, the president had painted a very different picture.

US President Donald Trump has expressed outrage at the FBI's raid of his personal lawyer's office and hotel room in two tweets overnight, declaring "lawyer-client privilege is dead". "And I thanked them at the conclusion", Cohen explained. There is an exception to the attorney-client privilege if communications to an attorney are used in furtherance of a crime or fraud; that could come into play here as well. It could also be that the team that is handling the case, in other words, the team that is going to review this for attorney-client privilege to make sure that the investigators don't review anything that is privilege, is in the Southern District of NY.

Trump - who staged a public freakout Monday after news broke that the Federal Bureau of Investigation had raided the office and hotel room of lawyer Michael Cohen - was "understandably less trusting" of Mueller, an administration source told the network.

"Is this surprising? Yes", said Giuliani, also a former USA attorney. And then they had to show a judge that evidence of that crime was that Michael Cohen's office. Daniels has said the affair happened in 2006.

Trump attorney Michael Cohen spoke out for the first time about Monday's Federal Bureau of Investigation raid in a phone conversation with CNN on Tuesday. Here are some of the reasons why.

Bump also acknowledged that it is unknown what specifically the FBI was searching for and what they eventually found, much less whether what they found will hinder or advance various investigations.

He criticised Deputy Attorney-General Rod Rosenstein, who is overseeing the Russian Federation investigation, and called Mr Mueller's team "the most biased group of people", who he said were mostly Democrats and some Republicans who had worked for former president Barack Obama. Last week, Trump told the White House press pool that he wasn't aware of the payment at the time it was made. And a prosecutor with subpoena power could find out an terrible lot.

Cohen'so attorney, Stephen Ryan, did not immediately respond to Fox News' request for comment.

And to the extent that Cohen, part of Trump's innermost circle, might have knowledge relevant to Mueller's inquiry, we can't rule out the possibility that his own legal troubles could induce him to co-operate in the Russian Federation probe.

There will also be a "taint team" to examine everything before it is handed over to prosecutors to make sure that those conducting the case never see any material that might be "tainted" by attorney-client privilege.

The New York Times first reported that the subpoena covered records related to both McDougal and Clifford, and The Wall Street Journal was first to report the Trump Organisation subpoena.

Cohen has long worked as Trump's attorney and "fixer", helping go after his client's enemies and silence his critics. He complained about the "horrible things" that Hillary Clinton did "and all of the crimes that were committed". That doesn't mean convictions are guaranteed, but it suggests that Michael Cohen at least, and probably his client as well, are in some extremely hot water. "He can't even fire Mueller to get out of this one". Instead, FBI agents working for the United States attorney's office for the Southern District of NY carried out the operation after apparently getting a referral from Mueller.

Cohen, meanwhile, was busy handling a number of potential threats to Trump.

Harry Sandick, a former assistant USA attorney from the Southern District of NY, echoed that point.

"We do not discuss conversations we have had or have not had with the special counsel", he said. Many in the president's orbit think Rosenstein's position is now the most endangered if the president decides to take action to try to halt the probe, according to people familiar with the situation. But they just got a whole lot worse.

We wonder: Will Cohen be fired next?
