REVEALED: FBI sought records about Trump’s infamous ‘Access Hollywood’ tape in Michael Cohen raid

Published

on

When raiding the office and residences of Donald Trump’s longtime personal attorney Michael Cohen, FBI agents sought information on the president’s infamous “Access Hollywood” tape that made headlines shortly before the 2016 election.

The New York Times reported Wednesday that the FBI agents who searched Cohen wanted “all records” related to the tape during their Monday raid. The report noted that it’s “unclear” whether the president’s personal attorney had anything to do with the tape.

This latest detail from the warrants to raid Cohen’s office and residences comes a day after the Times reported that agents also sought information regarding “hush payments” allegedly made to two other women who claimed to have had affairs with Trump. The agents who raided the attorney also sought records related to a similar agreement made to Trump mistress Stormy Daniels, who is currently cooperating with federal investigators probing the $130,000 payment Cohen gave her in exchange for her silence about the affair in October 2016.

Nothing can persuade them otherwise.

Yet while the media’s fixation on the Beltway crime wave makes for good television (and newsprint), there is scant attention being paid to the continuing slide of the economic circumstances of tens of millions of American families.

Trump ridiculed after his Louisiana governor candidate goes down in flames: ‘Guess it’s time for another unplanned trip to the hospital’

Published

Commenters on the Internet piled on President Donald Trump late Saturday night after the GOP candidate for Lousiana's governor seat lost to sitting Governor John Bel Edwards who held his seat in a state that Trump carried in 2016 by nearly 20 percentage points.

Trump visited the states multiple times to support Republican Eddie Rispone, but to no avail.

To add insult to injury, a Trump tweet on Saturday that read "Louisiana, 3 hours left, get out and vote for @EddieRispone for Governor. Lower taxes and much more!" was deleted and made unavailable by the president.
