Raid on Trump lawyer Michael Cohen tied to payments to two women, taxi cab medallions

New York federal prosecutors have also requested documents from the Trump Organization, Trump’s family business, for records relating to the payment to Daniels, The Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday.

CNN reported on Tuesday that search warrant sought info about payments to the two women and also involved a request for records related to a portfolio of New York City taxi cab medallions that Cohen owns, potentially worth millions.

The FBI and federal prosecutors sought and executed the search warrants Monday in coordination with special counsel Robert Mueller’s team.

Rod Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, had personally signed off on Monday’s raid, NBC News has confirmed.

In a series of tweets on Tuesday, Trump fumed that that “attorney-client privilege is dead” and said the Mueller investigation is “A TOTAL WITCH HUNT!!!”

A person briefed on the matter told NBC News Tuesday that the appointed U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, Geoffrey Berman, was not involved in seeking the search warrant involving Cohen and is not involved in the investigation into him.

Berman was appointed by Trump to take over the Southern District after the president fired Preet Bharara and numerous other U.S. Attorneys last year. Berman has not been nominated and has not been confirmed as U.S. Attorney.
