Remember how we were told that the FBI would protect any confidential information between attorney and client after the three raids conducted on Michael Cohen? Well, that didn’t last long.
A couple of media outlets are reporting that some tapes of conversations between President Trump and his personal lawyer, Michael Cohen have or may have been collected in the raids. Cohen has been known to tape conversations so he could play it back to colleagues working on the cases.
Remember, these tapes are only important if they are discussing committing a crime. Leaking their existence creates suspicion even if they are harmless.
President Trump’s personal attorney Michael D. Cohen sometimes taped conversations with associates, according to three people familiar with his practice, and allies of the president are worried that the recordings were seized by federal investigators in a raid of Cohen’s office and residences this week.
Cohen, who served for a decade as a lawyer at the Trump Organization and is a close confidant of Trump’s, was known to store the conversations using digital files and then replay them for colleagues, according to people who have interacted with him.
“We heard he had some proclivity to make tapes,” said one Trump adviser, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the ongoing investigation. “Now we are wondering, who did he tape? Did he store those someplace where they were actually seized? . . . Did they find his recordings?”
The raids were at the request of Robert Mueller chief witch hunter appointed by Deep State operative Rod Rosenstein. Allegedly this raid has nothing to do with Russian collusion either. It is being reported that they were also looking for information on Stormy Daniels and the Access Hollywood tape. Neither of which is related to Russian collusion.
Is Mueller conceding defeat on Russian collusion and trying to implicate Trump on other matters? Truly pathetic.
