FBI seizes documents from Trump's lawyer in surprise raid

Federal agents raided the offices of President Trump's personal Attorney Michael Cohen this morning.

Cohen has been under scrutiny for a $130,000 payment made to porn actress Stormy Daniels to keep quiet about an alleged affair with President Trump.

Cohen's lawyer says the raid was carried out by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Manhattan and was based partly on a referral from special counsel Robert Mueller.

President Trump has said he did not know about the payment and called today's raid a disgrace.

“I have this witch hunt constantly going on, for over 12 months now, and actually much more than that. You could say it was right after I won the nomination it started. And it's a disgrace. It's frankly a real disgrace. It's an attack on our country in a true sense, it's an attack on what we all stand for.”

Attorney and talk show host Charles Adams is on the Factor to talk about the raid.
