WASHINGTON (AP) — Federal agents have raided the office of President Donald Trump’s personal attorney Michael Cohen, seizing records on topics that include a $130,000 payment made to porn actress Stormy Daniels, who says she had sex with Trump.

The raid prompted a new blast Tuesday from the president, who tweeted that “Attorney-client privilege is dead!”

A furious Trump, who in the last month has escalated his attacks on Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation, said Monday from the White House that it was a “disgrace” that the FBI “broke into” his lawyer’s office. He called Mueller’s investigation “an attack on our country,” prompting new speculation that he might seek the removal of the Justice Department’s special counsel.
