This latest revelation comes after The Associated Press reported agents were also looking for documents related to the affairs Trump carried on with Karen McDougal and Stephanie Clifford, also known as Stormy Daniels.
The FBI is even looking into what Cohen's role within the Trump campaign was. The New York Times says the President looks at the raid as a way to delve into Trump's personal life.
It was also reported on Tuesday that President Trump is considering firing deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein to rein in special counsel Robert Mueller. In December, Trump reportedly attempted to fire Mueller himself as well.
