The FBI has raided the home and office of President Trump’s personal attorney, Michael Cohen. Documents regarding porn star Stormy Daniels leading up to the 2016 presidential election were seized.
On Monday, Cohen’s attorney said in a statement, “Today the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York executed a series of search warrants and seized the privileged communications between my client, Michael Cohen, and his clients. I have been advised by federal prosecutors that the New York action is, in part, a referral by the Office of Special Counsel, Robert Mueller.”
Fox News reached out for comments from the special counsel, but a spokesman declined. The spokesman referred Fox News to U.S. Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Title 28, Section 600.4 regarding “additional jurisdiction.”
The said code states, “If in the course of his or her investigation the Special Counsel concludes that additional jurisdiction beyond that specified in his or her original jurisdiction is necessary in order to fully investigate and resolve the matters assigned, or to investigate new matters that come to light in the court of his or her investigation, he or she shall consult with the Attorney General, who will determine whether to include the additional matters within the Special Counsel’s jurisdiction or assign them elsewhere.”
The code creates many open-ended questions. Where exactly is “elsewhere”?
