Michael Cohen Has Been Under Close Investigation For MUCH Longer Than We Thought

Published

The investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller into President Donald Trump, his Organization, his White House, his administration, his close circle and his White House seems now like it has been going on for many lifetimes. It certainly feels like much longer than two years ago at this point that the Justice Department (specifically, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein) found itself forced to commission the former Director of the FBI to set up a probe to investigate the claims that the campaign to elect then Republican candidate Donald Trump as President of the United States and leader of the free world during the 2016 presidential election colluded with Russian state actors in order to steal the result of the election and the White House from rival Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, and then committed obstruction of justice afterwards in a desperate attempt to cover it up.

Lately of course, all the talk about Trump and Russia has centered around Michael Cohen. As a former top lawyer to Trump and his team, Cohen knows a huge amount of the dirty details of what went on behind closed doors, and his recent explosive testimony revealing a whole bunch of amazing bombshells has sent the White House and the entire GOP into total panic. However, a new revelation threatens to throw a spanner into the works once again. Leaked documents are suggesting that Michael Cohen may have been under investigation for much, much longer than we thought, with dates on released search warrants surprising many and unveiling details we did not know about what he has been up to:

The investigation of Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s former lawyer, began at least nine months before federal agents raided his home and office, according to search warrants made public Tuesday. The newly released documents show that the first FBI warrant was executed on July 19, 2017, targeting Cohen’s Gmail account and seeking messages from all of 2016 up to July 2017. Special counsel Robert Mueller’s team turned over documents to federal prosecutors in New York on Feb. 8, 2018.

Some 20 days later, the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Southern District of New York received search warrants for the same account granting them the right to access Cohen’s emails from Nov. 13, 2017, to the end of February 2018. The search warrants reveal that Mueller’s investigation of Cohen began nearly a year earlier than previously known. The FBI raided Cohen’s office and hotel suite on April 9, 2018, seeking evidence of bank fraud and hush money payments to two women, porn star Stormy Daniels and Playboy model Karen McDougal, who claimed they had affairs with Trump. In addition to the emails, the investigators seized cell phones and at least 12 audio recordings, federal prosecutors said in court documents released last year.

This is incredible. We cannot trust anyone any more, it seems.
