President Donald Trump condemned the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) for raiding the home, hotel room, and office of his longtime personal lawyer Michael Cohen.
According to Washington Post, Cohen is under investigation for possible bank fraud, wire fraud, and campaign violations. FBI agents seized documents related to the payment he made to porn star Stormy Daniels, who claimed that she had sexual affair with Trump. They also took his computer, phone, and personal financial documents including his tax returns.
During a press conference on Monday, Trump called the raid a “disgraceful situation,” a “total witch hunt” and a “new level of unfairness”
“They broke into the office of one of my personal attorneys… and it’s a disgraceful situation. It’s a total witch hunt. I’ve been saying this for a long time,” said the President.
He added that the FBI raid is a “whole new level of unfairness,” and “an attack on our country” and “what we all stand for.”
Furthermore, Trump criticized Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his team of investigators as “the most biased group of people.”
