As Twitchy reported, the FBI on Monday raided the office, home, and hotel of President Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, and seized records “on many topics.”
The New York Times and CNN are reporting Wednesday that the FBI was seeking communications that Trump had with Cohen regarding the “Access Hollywood” tape that showed Trump making lewd comments about women to Billy Bush and compelled Joe Biden to say he’d like to take Trump “behind the gym.”

FBI agents who raided the home, office and hotel of Donald Trump’s personal lawyer sought communications that Trump had with attorney Michael Cohen and others regarding the infamous “Access Hollywood” tape that captured Trump making lewd remarks about women a month before the election, according to sources familiar with the matter.
The warrant’s specific reference to Trump is the first known direct mention of the President in a search warrant, and sources said it appeared in connection with “Access Hollywood.”

The “Access Hollywood” tape, which surfaced a month before the election, wasn’t enough to take Trump down at the time; what can we expect this time around?
Uhm… why? Client privilege and all of that… the FBI is not a good look right now… https://t.co/lEHFyCj1Rt

What the heck does the “Access Hollywood” tape have to do with Russia collusion? This investigation is a fishing expedition! https://t.co/NPqwGruzzQ

Mueller is literally going fishing in a river that is completely dried up. What in God’s name does the Access Hollywood tape have anything to do with Russian collusion or Trump?
There is a coup being plotted against President Trump and if you don’t think so, you better wake up.

Someone please explain to me what the infamous, “Access Hollywood” tape has to do with Russia? Actually no need to explain it. There is no reason. This is like raiding Home Depot looking for a Tuxedo. @realDonaldTrump @POTUS @AP @nytimes @CNN @FoxNews @CBNNews @WhiteHouse https://t.co/UpJxuY4xoc

The politically motivated FBI raided Michael Cohen’s office for documents related to a porn star and a thirteen year old, Access Hollywood tape. Unbelievable.
It’s time to shut down this witch hunt!

Going after the Access Hollywood tapes? Really? This has NOTHING to do with Russia.

I'm going to end up sounding like a Trump apologist at this rate, but isn't suppressing damaging reports during a campaign standard operating procedure? https://t.co/PuLc5154IQ

Maybe I'm just dumb, but I don't quite understand how the Access Hollywood tape fits in here….. https://t.co/cZ8v7qdfAY

The Mueller investigation and this SDNY case are separate, so the question isn't what the Access Hollywood tape has to do with the Mueller investigation.
Instead, the question is: What does the Access Hollywood tape have to do with… anything? https://t.co/u0ulu9uGDD
