Default FBI seize Trump lawyer docs

The FBI raided Trump lawyer Michael Cohen's office and home yesterday, seizing a variety of documents, under a warrant issued by the NY state attorney general, a Trump appointee whom Trump personally interviewed.

In other news, Fox News is exclusively reporting that someone just said something about Hillary Clinton. That is literally what they were leading with when I switched channels out of curiosity.

Cheers,
John

Not the NY state attorney general. The US Attorney for the Southern District of New York.

Correct. New York State has no direct administrative liaison with the FBI.

Interesting.... but meanwhile that moral imbecile Trump has that warmonger Bolton at his ear and is about to do something quite possibly terminally (for all of us) stupid in or around Syria.
I'd like to think that some lawyer might get in the way first - and I realy don't mind which one does.
These days have an eerily familiar feel - and this time there's no Bobby Kennedy around to warn about the unacceptable danger of a President becoming "America's Tojo".
I sometimes fear that now a 'smoking gun' or two and impeachment are about all the rest of us have left to hope for.

Yes, Trump has every reason to want to wave a shiny object for his base, and Bolton is there to help him do it.
My mistake on the Southern District of New York position. I believe it's the one previously occupied by Preet Bharara.

CHeers,
John

I think the orange blancmange in the Oval Office is now very scared, & might do something really off-the-wall irrational.
