On Monday, President Donald Trump slammed the FBI raid on his longtime attorney Michael Cohen. For some reason, the FBI is now trying to find documents about an ALLEGED relationship between Trump and Stormy Daniels more than a decade ago.
As you can imagine, Trump was PISSED that this happened, calling it a “disgraceful situation” and “an attack on our country.”
“I just heard that they broke into the office of one of my personal attorneys. Good man. And it’s a disgraceful situation. It’s a total witch hunt,” Trump said Monday to a pool of reporters.
“It’s an attack on our country,” Trump said. “It’s an attack on what we all stand for.”
The President also directed criticism at Attorney General Jeff Sessions for recusing himself from the special counsel many months ago, saying, “the attorney general made a terrible mistake.”
Just hours earlier, the NY Times reported that the FBI raided Cohen’s office and hotel room in search of documents related to President Trump’s alleged relationship more than a decade ago.
Trump was understandably angered by the news and repeatedly slammed special counsel Robert Mueller.
“This is ridiculous. This is now getting ridiculous,” Trump said.
“Why don’t I just fire Mueller? Well, I think it’s a disgrace what’s going on. We’ll see what happens,” Trump said. “Many people have said you should fire him. Again, they found nothing. And in finding nothing, that’s a big statement.”
Here’s how Twitter responded:
Bob Mueller thinks Trump’s crime was getting elected President.
Fire Mueller ASAP, and never look back. Screw the media’s phony outrage and the Dems too, they’ll move to impeach regardless of what Trump does. Law and order has to matter and Mueller cares about neither.

Trump calls FBI raid of Michael Cohen a disgrace while also saying “It’s an attack on on our country..what we all stand for.” He called the special counsel “the most conflicted group of people I have ever seen" & "no one is looking at Clintons 30k emails & many many other things"
