On Monday morning, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) raided the Rockefeller Center office and Park Avenue hotel room of President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen.  The FBI seized business records, emails and documents covering several topics, including those related to a payment to adult actress Stephanie Clifford, aka Stormy Daniels.

The president went to Twitter to vent at the law enforcement action, taken with a duly signed warrant from a federal judge. Federal prosecutors obtained the search warrant based on information indicating the possibility of bank fraud by Mr. Cohen.


Trump is also reported to have expressed outrage in a meeting with senior military commanders Monday night, calling it a “disgraceful situation” and an “attack on our country in a true sense,” accusing the Justice Department of a “witch hunt” and claiming the FBI “broke in to” Cohen’s office.

Many were quick to correct Trump's understanding of legal procedures and due process under United States criminal statutes, including Michael Avenatti, the lawyer currently involved in his own legal tangle with both Cohen and Trump. Avenatti represents Stephanie Clifford in her suit against the two men.

Avenatti was by no means the only person to weigh in with legal advice for the president.

Trump's Tweets garnered a slew of comments from individuals willing to offer advice or references to statutes and regulations or to correct his characterization of the law enforcement action as a "witch hunt."

Among them, Mrs. Betty Bowers, an internet personality billed as "America's Best Christian."

Mrs. Bowers, a character of comedian Deven Green, was joined by many others responding to Trump's Tweet about the nullification of attorney client privilege.

This gentleman simply offered a new interpretation for Trump's MAGA slogan:

President Donald Trump has made no effort to keep his thoughts on the trial of his former advisor, Roger Stone, a secret.

Stone was convicted of lying to Congress, obstructing justice, and threatening a witness last year. When prosecutors recommended a seven to nine year prison sentence, Trump fumed on Twitter and the Justice Department subsequently overrode the opinion of its prosecutors, who resigned in response.

Today, Stone was sentenced to 40 months in prison for his crimes, leading everyone to ask: Will Trump pardon one of his most vocal allies?

Republicans often claim their party has the upper hand with voters when it comes to fiscal responsibility. When a Democrat is in office, one of the chief complaints you can count on from Republican lawmakers is that the President is ballooning the deficit, or sending the federal debt skyward.
