‘Outrageous!’ Feds reportedly wiretapped Trump’s personal lawyer, at least one WH call intercepted

President Donald Trump railed against the raid on the office of his personal attorney, Michael Cohen, last month, tweeting that attorney-client privilege is “dead,” but that wasn’t the half of it.

It is being reported Thursday by NBC News that the feds had wire-tapped the phones in Cohen’s office before the raid.

“What we know is federal investigators pursuant to a lawful court order warrant were able to wiretap the phone lines of Trump personal attorney Michael Cohen,” reported NBC News’ Tom Winter. “That this wiretap occurred several weeks before the now public search warrant that was executed here in New York several weeks ago.”

It’s not clear exactly how long the phones were tapped, but Winter said at least one call between the White House and a phone line at Cohen’s office was intercepted.

A stunning revelation to think the president of the United States could be having his calls monitored by a government agency.

The reaction online showed a mix between concerns about civil rights violations and the suggestion that there must be some “hard core probable cause” to warrant the phone-tap.

Or a liberal judge.

Here’s a quick sampling of responses from Twitter:



Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton called the revelation, “Outrageous” and charged Special Counsel Mueller is “out of control.”


Funny she should ask. According to Laurence Tribe, the feds would need to be very convincing, indeed.


Liberals like “GOP media guy” for the Daily Beast, Rick Wilson don’t seem to be worried about the rule of law, and are giddy over the news.

Many are banking this will finally hold the smoking gun that will take down Trump. If recent history tells us anything, don’t count on it.
