The F.B.I. agents who raided the office and hotel of President Trump’s lawyer on Monday were seeking all records related to the “Access Hollywood” tape in which Mr. Trump was heard making vulgar comments about women, according to three people who have been briefed on the contents of a federal search warrant.

AS WE await the firing of [a. Rod Rosenstein; b. Jeff Sessions; c. Robert Mueller]…
And bombs being dropped on Syria…
We are a witness to history. To a Trump spectacle worthy of the Guinness Book of World Records, unpresidential edition.
There’s a reason for his latest meltdown.
It is not clear what role, if any, Mr. Cohen played regarding the tape, which was made public a month before the election. But the fact that the agents were seeking documents related to the tape reveals a new front in the investigation into Mr. Cohen that is being led by the United States attorney’s office in Manhattan.
The disclosure comes a day after it was revealed that the authorities also sought documents from Mr. Cohen related to payments made to two women who claim they had affairs with Mr. Trump, Karen McDougal and Stephanie Clifford, as well as information on the role of the publisher of The National Enquirer in silencing the women.
Or maybe it was something else… Axios, reporting.
A source present at the taping says James Comey’s interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, airing Sunday at 10 p.m. as a “20/20” special, is “going to shock the president and his team.”
According to the source:
- The Comey interview left people in the room stunned — he told George things that he’s never said before.
- Some described the experience as surreal. The question will be how to fit it all into a one-hour show.
- Comey answered every question.
- If anyone wonders if Comey will go there, he goes there.
Mr. Comey equates Mr. Trump to a “mob boss” in his interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, airing on Sunday.
