The FBI raided the office and hotel room of President Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, on Monday and took records and payments relating to Stormy Daniels' case as well as communications between Trump and Cohen, per the New York Times.

Federal prosecutors in Manhattan reportedly received the search warrant after obtaining a referral from Special Counsel Robert Mueller. The search appears to not be directly linked to Mueller, but it's likely he shared relevant information he had uncovered in his own probe with prosecutors, according to the Times.
