‘Freakin ridiculous!’ Bongino, GOP lawmaker explode over news FBI raided Cohen for Access Hollywood tape

With the New York Times reporting that the FBI raided President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer’s office in search of information “related to the Access Hollywood tape,” among other things, given the “striking” breadth of the search warrant, social media users are convinced that the move was little more than a fishing expedition.

Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino shared a “no holds barred take” on the FBI “throwing attorney-client privilege out the window” in a hunt for Access Hollywood tapes in a take from NRA-TV:

Rep. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., is equally outraged, asking what the infamous tape that captured Trump boasting to host Billy Bush about grabbing and kissing women — Trump described it as “locker room talk” — have to do with Russian collusion.

The search warrant came from federal prosecutors in Manhattan, after receiving a referral “in part” from special counsel Robert Mueller.

As The Times noted, Cohen is being investigated for potential campaign finance law violations. Instead of Russian collusion, we now have concerns over Cohen, who had no official role in the Trump campaign, colluding.

Of course, CNN’s Jim Sciutto has his own ideals about collusion… involving Wikileaks.

“Wikileaks started publishing first of hacked Podesta emails within an hour of the release of the Access Hollywood tape. This was also the same day ODNI/DHS first publicly blamed for election interference,” Sciutto tweeted in defense of the raid.

Nonetheless, the FBI, which failed to act on information that could have stopped the gunman who killed 17 people at Florida high school, is busy chasing down dirt about porn stars and p*ssy tapes.

Actions that drew outrage from the brother of Meadow Pollack, one of the students killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

“The politically motivated FBI could act on raiding a lawyers office for documents related to an adult film star,” he tweeted in response to Cohen’s office being raided.

“But they couldn’t act on stopping the shooter that murdered my sister and 16 others even though he was reported to them multiple times!”

Bongino would also express outrage on Twitter over similar concerns.

“Unbelievable. Terrorism, human trafficking, financial crimes, & this is what the DOJ is allocating assets to? When your identity theft case or worse gets scuttled by the FBI for lack of manpower remember this tweet. They’re out looking for p%^* tapes. Freakin ridiculous,” he tweeted.


There was plenty of outrage from social media users as well, who believe Mueller is looking to get President Trump any way possible.

Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
