Stormy’s Lawyer Michael Avenatti Says HE KNEW Cohen’s Text Messages Were Tapped — Which Is Illegal (VIDEO)

This article was updated to reflect NBC’s correction to their original report feds wiretapped Michael Cohen’s phone lines.

On Thursday NBC reported that the feds were wiretapping Michael Cohen’s phone lines.
Cohen is president Trump’s private attorney.

This means the Deep State has wiretapped and/or spied on Donald Trump’s administration, his transition team, his family, his business and now his lawyer’s phone lines.
And NO CRIME OR CRIMINAL CONDUCT has ever been identified.

Now this…
Today on MSNBC porn star Stormy Daniels’s lawyer Michael Avenatti said HE KNEW Cohen’s text messages were also being tapped!

Michael Avenatti: Here’s what I think ultimately we’re going to find out. I don’t think we’re going to find out that this was confined just to email or voice wiretap. I think they’re also, my understanding was, they were also wiretapping text message communications for the weeks leading up to the FBI raids.

How would Avenatti know? The story broke this morning.
Is the deep state working with Stormy the porn star?

CNBC reported:

Among the items seized from Cohen last month were files related to a $130,000 payment he made to porn star Stormy Daniels shortly before the 2016 presidential election. Daniels has said the money was in exchange for her promise to keep quiet about an affair she says she had with Trump in 2006. The White House has denied the affair happened.

Daniels lawyer Michael Avenatti, during an appearance on MSNBC said he knew that Michael Cohen’s text messages were also tapped by investigators.

“It’s a fact,” Avenatti said.

It has been previously known that federal prosecutors were monitoring Cohen’s email accounts for some time before the April 9 raid.

If true this is likely illegal.

Update: At 5:15 PM EST, NBC reporter, Ken Dilanian issued a correction to the original Michael Cohen wiretap story.

Ken Dilanian tweeted: NBC News has corrected its story: Michael Cohen’s phones were being monitored by a pen register, not a wiretap, senior U.S. officials say. Pen registers capture “to and from” calling and texting information, but not content.
