POTUS Trump FURIOUS After Finding Out Rosenstein Signed Off on FBI Raid of Michael Cohen “Attorney-Client Privilege is Dead!”

FBI agents raided the office of one of Trump’s personal lawyers Michael Cohen on Monday at the request of Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

They were looking for dirt on Stormy Daniels and seized attorney-client privileged communications between Trump and Cohen.

According to the Washington Post, FBI agents took Cohen’s computer, phone and personal financial records as part of the search of his office at Rockefeller Center.

Also, according to the New York Times, a special team of agents will be reviewing documents because conversations between lawyers and clients are protected in majority of cases.

President Trump immediately blasted AWOL AG Sessions and said the FBI raid is “an attack on our country” to a pool of reporters.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein signed off on the FBI raid.

Immediately after the FBI KGB raid, The Gateway Pundit reported Rosenstein was the one who gave permission to Mueller to send the feds in to kick down doors. The fake news media is finally catching up with our real news reporting.

The New York Times reported Tuesday that Rosenstein personally signed off on the FBI raid which infuriated President Trump; the President reportedly floated the idea of firing Rosenstein.

President Trump also brought up the fact that Rosenstein used Hillary’s phony dossier to mislead the FISA court.

Rod J. Rosenstein, the veteran Republican prosecutor handpicked by Mr. Trump to serve as deputy attorney general, personally signed off on Monday’s F.B.I. decision to raid the office of Mr. Cohen, Mr. Trump’s personal attorney and longtime confidant, several government officials said.

The early-morning searches enraged Mr. Trump, associates said, setting off an angry public tirade Monday evening that continued in private at the White House as the president fumed about whether he should fire Mr. Rosenstein. The episode has deeply unsettled White House aides, Justice Department officials and lawmakers from both parties, who believe the president may use it as a pretext to purge the team leading the investigation into Russia meddling in the 2016 election.

…. In his remarks Monday night, the president lashed out at Mr. Rosenstein for having “signed a FISA warrant,” apparently a reference to the role Mr. Rosenstein played in authorizing the wiretap of a Trump associate in the Russia inquiry.

The President’s fury continued into Tuesday morning in a pair of tweets.

Trump tweeted: Attorney–client privilege is dead!

Trump followed up with: A TOTAL WITCH HUNT!!!

Laura Ingraham and Mike Huckabee showed their support for Trump following the KGB raid.
