During an interview with CNN's Don Lemon on Tuesday evening, President Trump's personal lawyer and fixer, Michael Cohen, said that having FBI agents raiding his Manhattan home, office, and hotel room on Monday was "upsetting to say the least."

Cohen was "unhappy" that the raids took place, but the agents were "all extremely professional, courteous, and respectful, and I thanked them at the conclusion," he said. It's been reported that agents were looking for evidence of possible bank and wire fraud and campaign finance violations, as well as documents related to the $130,000 payment Cohen made to adult film actress Stormy Daniels right before the 2016 presidential election.
