Donald Trump lashed out at hs own Justice Department on Tuesday morning, following FBI raids on his longtime personal lawyer’s offices, home and hotel.
‘Attorney–client privilege is dead!’ Trump tweeted.
‘A TOTAL WITCH HUNT!’
The White House has yet to formulate a strategy for dealing with the fallout of an apparent criminal investigation of Michael Cohen by the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York.
Trump, according to one White House official who spoke with DailyMail.com on Monday night, is most angry about what he thought was an impenetrable barrier: the decades-old secrecy between Cohen and himself.
His morning television habits typically revolve around the ‘Fox & Friends’ broadcast, and Tuesday morning the program replayed portions of a Monday night interview with famed Harvard lawyer Alan Dershowitz – a Democratic lion and Hillary Clinton voter who has rushed to Trump’s side on technical questions of law.
‘This may be an attempt to squeeze Cohen – he’s the lawyer, he’s the guy who knows all the facts about Donald Trump – and to get him to turn against his client,’ Dershowitz said in the clip.
‘This is a very dangerous day today for lawyer-client relations.’
‘If this were Hillary Clinton [having her lawyer’s office raided], the ACLU would be on every TV station in America jumping up and down,’ Dershowitz protested.
‘The deafening silence of the ACLU and civil libertarians about the intrusion into the lawyer-client confidentiality is really appalling.’
