Michael Cohen Raid Also Sought Records on ‘Access Hollywood’ Tape

The Monday FBI raid of Trump lawyer Michael Cohen’s office and residence sought “all records related to” the infamous Access Hollywood tape—in which President Trump infamously bragged about grabbing women “by the pussy,” The New York Times reported Wednesday. The search warrant also sought materials determining if Cohen “tried to suppress damaging information” about the president during the 2016 campaign. More specifically, the FBI operation sought documents related to the $130,000 payout to porn actress Stormy Daniels, and the $150,000 payment to ex-Playboy model Karen McDougal, both made in exchange for silence about alleged sexual affairs with Trump.
