>> The FBI agents who raided the offices of President Trump's personal attorney were looking for details about quote, arrangements, agreements, and payments related to two women who have said they had sexual relationships with Trump. A source telling Reuters investigators were looking into whether there was a broader pattern of tax fraud, wire fraud, tax evasion, money laundering, and other crimes in Cohen's private dealings, including his work for Trump.
Reuters legal correspondent, Jan Wolfe.>> The raid is one of the most significant developments in the investigations into the President so far. It is highly unusual, prosecutors typically try to use less intrusive means of getting evidence. The raid suggests that they don't trust Cohen to produce these documents in response to a subpoena.
>> Cohen has been under scrutiny since it was revealed he paid a porn star Stormy Daniels $130,000 in 2016 in what she calls hush money to keep quiet about an alleged affair she had with the married Trump in 2006, a payment Trump has denied knowing about.>> If Michael Cohen obtained these funds to pay Stormy Daniels by misleading his bank that would likely constitute bank fraud.
].>> President Trump expressing his outrage after the raid, which came about in part on a referral by the office of Special Counsel Robert Mueller. The question in Washington now is what is Trump going to do about it?>> Does the president believe he has the power to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller, does he believe that's within his power?
>> He certainly believes he has the power to do so.>> Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer renewed a call Tuesday for legislation to protect the special counsel.>> Support this legislation before the president creates a constitutional crisis.>> But so far, Republican leaders are refusing, saying they don't believe it will come to that.
>> Thank you very much. Thank you
