Mueller is out of control!
The FBI raided President Trump’s personal attorney Michael Cohen’s home, office and hotel room Monday to seize a collection of documents -- a development that Trump slammed as “a disgrace.”
Federal agents reportedly obtained documents related to several issues, including his payments to adult-film star Stormy Daniels in the weeks leading up to the 2016 presidential election. The New York Times was first to report the raid.
“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,” Cohen’s attorney Stephen Ryan said in a statement Monday. “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.”
Trump lashed out Monday evening at the White House, calling Mueller's investigation “a total witch hunt” and “an attack on our country, in a true sense.”
A spokesman for the special counsel referred Fox News to U.S. Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Title 28, Section 600.4 regarding “additional jurisdiction.”
“If in the course of his or her investigation the Special Counsel concludes that additional jurisdiction beyond that specified in his or her original jurisdiction is necessary in order to fully investigate and resolve the matters assigned, or to investigate new matters that come to light in the court of his or her investigation, he or she shall consult with the Attorney General, who will determine whether to include the additional matters within the Special Counsel’s jurisdiction or assign them elsewhere,” the code reads.
That “elsewhere,” in this case, could be referring to the U.S. Attorneys’ Office in the Southern District of New York.
When asked whether it was Attorney General Jeff Sessions or Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein who directed the jurisdiction, the Justice Department declined to comment. A spokesman for USDNY declined comment to Fox News.
“The decision by the US Attorney’s Office in New York to conduct their investigation using search warrants is completely inappropriate and unnecessary,” Ryan told Fox News in a statement. “It resulted in the unnecessary seizure of protected attorney client communications between a lawyer and his clients.”
This is a new low for the progressive left.
"A spokesman for the special counsel referred Fox News to U.S. Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Title 28, Section 600.4 regarding “additional jurisdiction.” "
Now a spokesman for the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, even with the help of The God In Which We Trust, would like to make reference to the common dictionary---especially regarding Ms. Daniels:Fact is, if you wallow in the mud, you get your britches all muddy---and it doesn't matter who you are, or what you intend.
Sessions needs to get control of the FBI. Some serious purging would go a long way towards that...

Ep. 695 The Biggest Coverup in American History
In this episode I address the Mueller investigation's disturbing new moves and why they tell a bigger story about Mueller's intent.
Did Hillary's team collude with the Ukrainians against Trump?
Why is Mueller targeting Trump's personal attorney?
Why did Hillary's team deny meeting with the same Ukrainian donor that the Mueller team is looking at?
Did the Ukrainians collude with the Democrats in the 2016 election?
President Trump is the ultimate target, no matter WHAT Mueller says. I doubt anyone could talk me out of that position on the whole Mueller investigation issue. Trump is being PUSHED to fire Mueller, and Mueller is part of it. I’m convinced of that as well.
I couldn't agree with you more, JG! It is crystal clear that this is a soft coup! Most everything I see on the internet agrees as well.
Wow, Robin! Assuming all of that is true, I must say this.....despite what the pundits all say, Trump IS thee master of timing!
Just pray they don't try to pull a JFK or attempt it!
That is a scary thought...
Trump's right. This is nothing but a witch hunt. There is no Russian collusion, so Mueller and his henchmen/women are digging deeper to find anything they can to bring Trump down.
I total witch hunt that looks more ridiculous and obvious by the day.
What a smack in the face to Trump. They "Swatted" his lawyer. He'll get 'em for it, I'll bet.
