The FBI agents who raided the office and hotel room of President Trump's attorney were reportedly looking for information about taxi medallions he owned, CNN reports.

The Monday night raid sent federal prosecutors rifling through Michael Cohen's documents, with what was apparently a sweeping search warrant approved by Rod Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general. Rosenstein appointed Special Counsel Robert Mueller and is overseeing Mueller's investigation of the Trump campaign's possible involvement with Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.
