Reports said that agents were after a trove of emails and documents including those pertaining to a $130,000 payment to former adult sex star Stormy Daniels. Also, reports said that Cohen was under investigation for alleged bank fraud and campaign finance violations.

In comments tied to the raid, Trump called it a “disgraceful situation” and an “attack on our country in a true sense … an attack on what we all stand for.”

In addition, the president declared that “attorney-client privilege” in America was now “dead.”

“It’s a total witch hunt. I’ve been saying it for a long time. I’ve wanted to keep it down. I’ve given over a million pages in documents to the special counsel,” Trump said, according to press pool reporters.

Trump also lashed out at his attorney general, Jeff Sessions, for failing to restrain special counsel Robert Mueller, as experts have said he is constitutionally mandated to do. The referral to the FBI to raid Cohen’s office reportedly came straight from special counsel Robert Mueller.

“They continue to just go forward and here we are talking about Syria, we’re talking about a lot of serious things … and I have this witch hunt constantly going on for over 12 months now. Actually, it’s much more than that. You could say right after I won the nomination it started,” said the president.

“This is the most biased group of people. These people have the biggest conflicts of interest I have ever seen … Either Democrats or a couple of Republicans who worked for President Obama. They’re not looking at the other side — Hillary Clinton … They only keep looking at us,” Trump noted, correctly.

As for Sessions, Trump said, “[H]e made what I consider to be a very terrible mistake for the country. But you’ll figure that out.”

The president also lashed out at former FBI Director James Comey, whom he fired early in his term.

“Well, I turned out to do the right thing [firing former FBI Director James Comey.] If you look at all of the things he’s done and the lies, and you look at what’s going on at the FBI … turned out I did the right thing,” Trump said.
