Raid an Office?

So Trump’s atty’s offices were raided bright and early Monday morning. Since then, the political world has gone bananas. The faithful viewers of CNN are salivating at the prospects that the raid will lead to indictments against Trump, while the right is going ballistic at the apparent violation of lawyer-client privilege. I don’t think that either is accurate.

Here’s what I’ve been able to glean from all the reports I’ve read.

If there’s evidence that an atty is acting in an unethical manner, whether on behalf of his client or himself, his offices can be raided. An atty cannot skirt the law, abuse the judicial system, or conduct business in an illegal manner and hide behind the cloak of attorney / client privilege. However, it takes exceptional evidence showing the likelihood that something is amiss to raid an office, and it takes approval from some of the highest offices in the judicial and law enforcement jurisdictions.

What happened to Cohen , Trump’s personal attorney, happens regularly, but isn’t publicized as much as this incident for obvious reasons.

From what I can gather, the raid centers around the payment to the porn star in order to keep her from going public about her affair with Trump, and whether or not Trump told Cohen to pay her. A client telling his attorney to pay hush money is not uncommon or illegal if both parties — the payer and the payee –agree to the deal / arrangement.

But it appears that Cohen is being investigated for bank fraud, and not the hush money per se’. It seems that when Cohen went to the bank to get the hush money, he told the banker that the loan was for purchasing a house. If that is indeed what he told the bank, then yeah ~~ that’s fraud, and that is illegal. So then THAT would lead to the question; did Trump tell him to deceive the bank? If he did, then that can spell trouble for Trump. But that would take documented proof, or Cohen saying so under oath. If Trump didn’t tell him to deceive the bank, then Trump is in the clear. That only leaves the left with what they’ve been doing already, and that’s character assassination.

So now, I have a couple thoughts:

I think that what’s really drawing the ire of American people is that this leg of the investigation strongly suggests that Meuller is operating outside the purview of a Special Counsel’s usual authority. But from what I can gather, he’s not.

It appears that when Mueller discovered the potential fraud, he turned it over to a different authority to investigate. That’s what he should have done. But the optics are fraught with images of a witch hunt.

Coupling this leg of Meuller’s investigation with the DOJ’s flagrant refusal to cooperate with the House investigation into the Hillary email scandal leads the thinking person to conclude that elements within the FBI, the DOJ, and the Special Counsel are in cahoots to stop Trump and his agenda.

I’m not one to shy away from criticizing Trump when I see clear violations of the Constitution being courted or committed, but I think that stems from his ignorance, not malic. Whatever you think of Trump as a person, I don’t think you can dispute that his overall motivation is to make America a strong leader on the world stage again, and that goes against the liberal’s one world government goal.

I don’t think there can be any doubt that the left is using every available tool to take Trump down and stop his agenda. If the FBI and DOJ spent a fraction of the effort investigating Hillary, Holder, Lynch, and / or Obama that they’re spending on the supposed Russian collusion — the reason for the Special Counsel in the first place–, we’d see every one of them in orange jumpsuits by now.

But they’re not. And that’s the real crime being committed here
