FBI Raid on Trump’s Lawyer Sought Documents on “Access Hollywood” Tape

HeadlineApr 12, 2018

FBI agents who raided the home, hotel room and offices of President Trump’s personal attorney, Michael Cohen, were seeking clues about how Cohen worked with the Trump campaign in 2016 to suppress negative information. That’s according to The New York Times, which reports the agents were seeking documents related to the 2005 “Access Hollywood” tape in which Trump is recorded openly boasting about sexually assaulting women. The latest revelations come as Trump’s former chief strategist, Steve Bannon, urged the president to fire Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and to stop cooperating with special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into alleged ties between Trump’s campaign and Russia.
