Trump tweeted that “attorney client privilege is now a thing of the past” and said his lawyers are probably wondering when they will be raided.

The FBI raided Cohen’s office, home and hotel room on Monday, reportedly seizing documents and bank records about his dealings with the adult-film actress Stormy Daniels, whom Cohen paid $130,000 as part of a nondisclosure agreement concerning an alleged affair with Trump.

The Justice Department said on Friday that Cohen had been under criminal investigation in New York for months because of his business dealings.

The FBI also seized recordings Cohen made with the lawyers of two women who said they had affairs with the president.

Trump and Cohen have attempted to block federal prosecutors from using the seized recordings.
