Now of course the crazies over at Fox News got all bent out of shape because the FBI raided the office and home of Trump’s personal “lawyer.” They pretended to call it a violation of the president’s lawyer client relationship.

But truth is that Mr. Cohn only plays at lawyering. His real day job is running Trump’s criminal enterprises, Trump’s only means of income, much of it involving Russians. So naturally if one grabs Cohn’s data, after being careful to go through all the proper legal channels, it exposes the entire pile of muck that is Trump world — nice going Mr. Mueller. Oh, and since the state of New York has taken over much of the case, Trump can’t shut it down. Oh, happy day.
