What Michael Cohen’s Plea and Paul Manafort’s Conviction Mean for Trump and the Mueller Investigation
Seven questions about national security and the way forward in the wake of Tuesday’s events.
Attorney Michael Cohen pleaded guilty Tuesday to a charge that is compelling only because of the story he has to tell, along with other evidence, about the way that Donald Trump operates.
Following an FBI raid on his home, hotel room and office, President Trump's personal lawyer Michael Cohen filed for a temporary restraining order from the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York to prevent federal investigators from reviewing material seized in the raid. Cohen is also requesting that the court allow his attorneys to review the seized material prior to investigators to ensure that the government does not review material covered by attorney-client privilege. The government has filed an opposition to Cohen's motion.
Evidence supporting the warrant application likely exceeded what is legally required, which makes Cohen’s situation, and Trump’s, grave.
