There's an Affidavit Worth Reading
The Mango Mussolini called it nothing less than "an attack on America." Really, Donnie? I just don't see it.
What got Trump's feathers ruffled was FBI raids on the offices and residence of his "personal lawyer" Michael Cohen and the seizure of records, tax information, even emails between Cohen and Trump.
It's not every day that a court issues a search warrant involving a lawyer and his/her client. Solicitor-client privilege is pretty sacrosanct in the eyes of the law and for an abundance of good reasons that I won't get into here.
To get a search warrant of Trump's lawyer's offices and residence the supporting affidavit material would have to lay out a pretty strong case of wrongdoing by Cohen and/or Cohen and Trump. There'll be no "fishing trip" this time.
Unfortunately that also means that the affidavit(s) filed in support of the warrant(s) won't be made public anytime soon. They're likely sealed, for now anyway.
Still I'd love to have a peek at them, just for a few minutes.
