Anxiety grows for US President Donald Trump after raid on his personal lawyer

Washington: President Donald Trump and his allies have hit a new level of anxiety after the raid on his personal attorney’s office, fearful of deeper exposure for Trump, his inner circle and his adult children and more than concerned that they don’t know exactly what is in those records and electronic devices seized last week.
There is also some worry that Michael Cohen, the self-described legal fixer who helped make bad stories go away and took a leading role in Trump Organisation projects in foreign outposts, may strike a deal with prosecutors out of concern about his own prospects.
“I think it’s a huge minefield for Donald Trump and the Trump Organisation,” said trial attorney Joseph Cammarata, who represented Paula Jones in her sexual harassment suit against President Bill Clinton.
“I think this is on its own track and this train is coming down the track with brute force.” The wild legal show continued to play out Monday, at a court hearing in New York before a federal judge who is considering what to do with the material that the FBI seized from Cohen.
