Donald Trump was furious in the face of the FBI raiding the office Michael Cohen, his personal attorney, and insisted that the FBI “broke into” the office. But Michael Cohen is singing a different tune.
Cohen, whose office was raided by the Federal Bureau of Investigation Monday, doesn’t agree with Donald Trump’s assessment. The president stated that the FBI “broke into” his personal lawyers office, implying nefarious motivations and illegal activity.
You can see the Trump’s full commentary on the FBI raid in the video below, courtesy of the Washington Post:
Unlike Trump, Cohen, who spoke with CNN’s Don Lemon, doesn’t feel that the FBI broke into his office or were out of line. Rather he was just dismayed and worried.
‘To be honest, he’s concerned mostly about his family. He’s upset. He’s saddened by this.’
Cohen told Lemon that the FBI agents who raided his office were “professional, courteous and respectful” during the search. Cohen’s comments directly contradict Trump’s own sentiment, which likely means he will fully cooperate with Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.

Below are some of the top reactions from Twitter users to Cohen’s assessment of the FBI raid on his office:
Cohen told CNN:
‘I am unhappy to have my personal residence and office raided. But I will tell you that members of the FBI that conducted the search and seizure were all extremely professional, courteous and respectful. And I thanked them at the conclusion.’
CNN host Don Lemon then asked Cohen if he was worried, he reportedly told Lemon that he’d being lying to him if he said he wasn’t worried.
‘Do I need this in my life? No. Do I want to be involved in this? No.’
Trump’s personal attorney still believes that the $130,000 in hush money paid to porn star Stormy Daniels, Trump’s mistress, was absolutely legal. When speaking to Lemon, Cohen said that in light of the FBI raid, in he would “rethink how he handled the payments,” considering how much the FBI search has affected his family.
