The FBI is not playing with President Trump.

On Monday, the FBI raided the office of Trump’s longtime personal lawyer, Michael D. Cohen. They took with them records related to several topics, including payments to a porn actress, according to the New York Times.

This search was not related to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s work, but rather appears to have been something additional, possibly uncovered by Mueller’s Russia investigation and turned over to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York.

“The F.B.I. also seized emails, tax documents and business records, the person said,” the Times reported. Including “communications between Mr. Trump and Mr. Cohen…”

Ah. Aren’t thorough investigations just the worst.

Mueller does not rest, he will get his man whoever it is.
