he investigation of Michael Cohen began in the summer of 2017, nearly a year before federal agents raided the home and office of President Donald Trump's former lawyer and fixer, according to search warrants made public Tuesday.
The newly-released documents show that the first FBI warrant was executed on July 19, 2017, targeting Cohen's Gmail account and seeking messages from all of 2016 up to July 2017.
The FBI raided Cohen's office and hotel suite on April 9, 2018, seeking evidence of bank fraud and hush money payments to two women, porn star Stormy Daniels and Playboy model Karen McDougal, who claimed they had affairs with Trump. The investigators seized cell phones, emails and at least 12 audio recordings, according to federal prosecutors.
The warrants describe the use of a “triggerfish” or cell phone location device to pinpoint the location of Cohen who was using a room at the Lowe’s hotel in Manhattan. They also sought and obtained a “pen register” or “trap and trace” warrant to find out who Cohen was calling and receiving phone calls from, but without the ability to listen or monitor those calls.
They were desperate for some linkage to Russia
Ya think Cohen should be just a little bit FURIOUS?
It became an "oh s#!t" moment, and a full fledged CYA investigation, on November 8th, 2016, when President Trump won, and his people would be in place in DOJ.
If you really believe that, then you have succumbed to the 'Hoax' propaganda.
Here, let me set you (and everyone) straight on DOJ/FBI/CIA/Muller Coup Conspiracy:
1. The 'Coup Conspirators' (CC) always KNEW that there was NEVER, and NEVER GOING TO BE any evidence of Trump-Russia collusion to influence the 2016 Election.
2. The CC set up the Trump-Russia collusion HOAX in a very elaborate and methodical way in order to GAIN INTELLIGENCE and OTHER INCRIMINATION information inside the Trump orbit to use against TRUMP and his campaign for the purpose of derailing his election (first) then his Presidency.

I feel very sorry for Michael Cohen
he was a very vociferous and Avid supporter of Trump during the campaign in 2016
I remember hearing him on Hannity show many times and he was a very very good supporter
theres no way he made any of those things in the testimony the other day the Democrats had a basically a gun to his head and said will put your wife where for 90 years you get the hell up there and you say all these things Trump is a racist Trump is this Trump is that and you could tell that he didnt mean any of them
Eh, Michael Cohen is a fixer. Fixers are rats. If he worked for the Clinton’s he would have committed Arkancide 2 years ago.
There may be some evidence now that both Pence and Ryan were in on the coup and were part of the “insurance policy”. Most likely the reason Ryan was “resigned” from the house.
So the phony allegations in the Steele Dossier that Cohen was meeting with Russians in Prague as part of a criminal conspiracy to hack Team Hillary was used by the corrupt DOJ/FBI to get court approval for a warrant on Cohen.
The warrant was then used to root around Cohen’s communications and business dealings looking for something on Trump or something on Cohen to pressure him to take down Trump.
Mueller, his lawyers and the FBI agents should be made to dress up in gaudy military uniforms with over-sized epaulets and giant decorations like Banana Republic dictators to befit their current position in our former constitutional republic.

This issue was Decided by the Supreme Court in the John Edwards Case, It is NOT A CRIME to PAY OFF WOMEN!!! Who is the crackhead Judge that signed os and why hasn’t he been Removed?? They All belong in GITMO for LIFE!!!
I can agree with everything you said but I further believe the primary goal after the election, was to clean up all evidence of BHO and Hillary conspiracy.
AMERICA is DEAD. the Swamp controls us all and will do anything to defeat American conservatives.
The new leftist socialist aMeriKa is the future.
