Witch hunt?

Donald Trump slammed the FBI’s raid on the offices of his longtime personal attorney, Michael Cohen. 

“I have this witch hunt constantly going on,” Trump said during a military leadership meeting, according to a press pool report. “It’s an attack on on our country … what we all stand for.”

Investigators from the US attorney’s office at the Southern District of New York raided Cohen’s offices after receiving a tip from the special counsel Robert Mueller’s team.

The revelation indicates Cohen is a subject of interest in two criminal investigations, legal experts said.

And it suggests that Cohen, who paid off adult film star Stormy Daniels, could be a bridge between the two separate legal strands threatening Trump.

Cohen is under investigation for possible bank fraud and violations of election law, according to a later report from The Washington Post.

Scandalous payment from Ukraine 

Also, a $150,000 payment to President Donald Trump’s foundation in 2015, made by a pro-Russian Ukrainian oligarch, is under investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller’s team, The New York Times reported Monday.

The donation was made by Victor Pinchuk in September of that year for Trump’s 20-minute video appearance that month at a conference in Kiev. 

Moreover, Mueller is leading the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 US presidential election, which includes examining any potential ties between Trump campaign associates and Russia.

“Why don’t I just fire Mueller?” Trump asked in response to a reporter’s question during a military leadership meeting on Monday. “Well, I think it’s a disgrace what’s going on. We’ll see what happens, but I think it’s really a sad situation … Many people have said you should fire him. Again, they found nothing, and in finding nothing, that’s a big statement.”
