Report: FBI raided Michael Cohen to seek records on 'Access Hollywood' tape


WASHINGTON (Circa) -- FBI agents raided lawyer Michael Cohen's office and hotel in order to get records related to Trump's "Access Hollywood" tape in which the President referred to women in a vulgar way, according to The New York Times.

Agents wanted to figure out whether Cohen tried to suppress damaging information about President Trump in the heat of the 2016 election.

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.
