On the excuse that they are investigating Michael Cohen, the feds tapped his phone and intercepted a call with the White House.
Why have the Feds tapped Michael Cohen’s phone? They couldn’t possibly have done it because they wanted to dig up dirt on one of his clients—like the President of the United States! That would be as unthinkable as our intelligence agencies putting a foreigner under surveillance in the hope of intercepting Donald Trump’s communications. Our government would never be that sleazy!
Can you imagine the outrage if anyone had done this to Barack Obama’s lawyer? That’s the real threat of the mainstream media. They can effectively give cover for anyone they like. There’s not a hint of equal treatment under law, but they pretend not to notice.
NBC News reports, “Feds tapped Trump lawyer Michael Cohen’s phones.”
Federal investigators have wiretapped the phone lines of Michael Cohen, the longtime personal lawyer for President Donald Trump who is under investigation for a payment he made to an adult film star who alleged she had an affair with Trump, according to two people with knowledge of the legal proceedings involving Cohen.
It is not clear how long the wiretap has been authorized, but NBC News has learned it was in place in the weeks leading up to the raids on Cohen’s offices, hotel room, and home in early April, according to one person with direct knowledge.
At least one phone call between a phone line associated with Cohen and the White House was intercepted, the person said.
Previously, federal prosecutors in New York have said in court filings that they have conducted covert searches on multiple e-mail accounts maintained by Cohen.
Spokespeople for the U.S. Attorney’s Office and the FBI in New York declined comment.
After the raid, members of Trump’s legal team advised the president not to speak to Cohen, according to a person familiar with the discussion.
Two sources close to Trump’s newest attorney, Rudolph Giuliani, say he learned that days after the raid the president had made a call to Cohen, and told Trump never to call again out of concern the call was being recorded by prosecutors.[…]
It is unclear what incriminating information Cohen could give prosecutors on Trump, if he chose to cooperate.
