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.
