READ: Michael Avenatti Explains to Donald Trump Why Raid on Michael Cohen Is Not a ‘Witch Hunt’

Facts are stubborn things.

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.
