U.S. President Donald Trump's personal lawyer Michael Cohen "facilitated" a payment to a porn star.

U.S. President Donald Trump decried the FBI’s raid on his personal lawyer’s office after the agency seized “privileged communications” between Michael Cohen and his clients, following a referral from Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who heads the so-called Russia probe.

Trump, who allegedly made a payment of $130,000 to porn star Stormy Daniels via his lawyer before the 2016 presidential election, lashed out at the witch hunt as the leader faces risk of being dragged into a second criminal probe, notes the BBC.

Despite any evident link that the raid was connected to alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Moscow, the president attributed the FBI move to “the most biased group of people” involved in Russia inquiry, writes The Guardian.
