The legal battle between President Donald Trump and his ex-mistress Stormy Daniels took a stunning turn on Thursday when the adult actress and director’s lawyer revealed that sixteen cellphones had been seized from Trump lawyer Michael Cohen’s office by the FBI.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation raided Cohen’s offices a few weeks ago, collecting evidence for the investigation into the non-disclosure agreement and hush money payment that Cohen arranged with Daniels shortly before the 2016 election – an agreement that Trump never signed and now appears to have been a major violation of campaign finance law.
Daniels’ lawyer, Michael Avenatti, took to Twitter to taunt the president and his cronies with Trump’s personal lingo over the discovery – and to hit home just how suspicious it is that Cohen had that many old cell phones stashed away in his office.
Most interesting fact from today’s hearing IMO – FBI imaged 16 (by my count) cell phones and blackberries seized in MC raids. Usually not a good sign when the target appears to have saved old phones and there are that many phones recovered. BIGLY bad…for many. #basta

It’s hard to imagine why anyone who wasn’t involved in some kind of criminal activity would need sixteen cellphones – and it’s clear that the FBI has uncovered more than a few skeletons from Cohen’s closet. It’s likely that we’re only just scratching the surface of the criminal activity that the president and his bumbling attorney have gotten up to the over the past few decades.
Good thing he saved all the evidence for us.
