The corruption in the Justice Department and FBI knows no end. Mark Levin shocked a lot of people when he said that this is an organized coup against a duly elected President, but looking at the events of the past few days and weeks, it’s hard to come to any other conclusion.
And now there’s this latest development about the raid on Michael Cohen’s office that is sure to make the President’s blood boil:
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein reportedly personally approved the FBI raid Monday of President Trump‘s personal attorney, Michael Cohen.
The New York Times reported that Rosenstein signed off on the raid, in which the FBI seized emails, tax documents and records, some of them related to Cohen’s payment to adult-film star Stormy Daniels.
FBI officials raided Cohen’s office in Manhattan, along with his residence and a hotel room.
Cohen’s lawyer, Stephen Ryan, said in a statement Monday that federal prosecutors in Manhattan obtained a search warrant after receiving a referral “in part” from special counsel Robert Mueller. Ryan called the search “completely inappropriate and unnecessary.”

Cohen is being investigated for possible tax fraud and bank fraud as well as campaign finance violations, according to The Washington Post.
The raid enraged Trump, who on Tuesday condemned the move as a “disgrace” and a “pure and simple witch hunt.”
“It’s an attack on our country in a true sense. It’s an attack on what we all stand for,” Trump said at the White House.
Michael Cohen, President Trump‘s personal attorney, said Tuesday that the FBI agents that raided his office and hotel room a day earlier acted professionally and courteously.
“I am unhappy to have my personal residence and office raided,” Cohen told CNN in an interview. “But I will tell you that members of the FBI that conducted the search and seizure were all extremely professional, courteous and respectful. And I thanked them at the conclusion.”
Cohen also called the raid “upsetting,” and acknowledged that he is worried about investigators’ seizures of documents and communications.
“I would be lying to you if I told that I am not,” he told CNN. “Do I need this in my life? No. Do I want to be involved in this? No.”
