President Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, told CNN that the FBI officials who conducted an abrupt raid in his office and hotel room in New York City on Monday "were extremely professional, courteous and respectful.”

The details: Cohen's first public comments Tuesday in a phone interview contrast with Trump, who said FBI agents "broke into the office" and labeled the raid as "a total witch hunt." Cohen reportedly didn't go into details about the event, but CNN reports that he said it's "upsetting" and the unwanted attention has affected his family.
