WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump and his allies have hit a new level of anxiety after the raid on his personal attorney’s office. They’re growing fearful of deeper exposure for the president, his inner circle and his children. And they’re concerned that they don’t know exactly what is in the records and electronic devices seized last week.
There is also some worry that Michael Cohen may strike a deal with prosecutors out of concern about his own prospects. The attorney is the self-described legal fixer who has taken a leading role in Trump Organization projects in shadowy foreign outposts.
White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders is seeking to put distance between Trump and Cohen. She said on Monday, “The president has a large number of attorneys, as you know.”
