Trump Vents About Michael Cohen's Raids '20 Times a Day,' Report Says

President Donald Trump reportedly vents about the FBI raids on his former personal attorney's office and residence "20 times a day" to associates, as the special counsel's probe closes in on its one-year anniversary.

Trump, who has repeatedly called special counsel Robert Mueller's probe a "witch hunt," also complains that he requires stronger "TV lawyers" to take to the airwaves and defend him in the investigation, The Washington Post reported Sunday, citing White House and Justice Department officials as well as sources close to the president.

The report indicated that many around the president believe he won't be harmed by the probe, but have also resigned themselves to "buckle up" as the inquiry, and Trump's attacks on it, continues.

"Everyone seems resigned to just buckle up and get through whatever we've got to get through for it to reach its conclusion," one unnamed White House official told the Post.

Mueller was appointed on May 17, 2017, and the long arm of his investigation reportedly reached right into the president's backyard. Acting on a referral from Mueller, federal prosecutors based in New York obtained a warrant and conducted raids of Michael Cohen's office, residence and hotel room last month, seizing business records and other documents related to payments made to women who claimed to have had either a sexual encounter with Trump or a continued affair with him years before he took to the campaign trail.

Trump described the raids as a "disgraceful situation" and called them an "attack on our country in a true sense."

Trump further vented about the raids in a tweet sent one day after they occurred.

"Attorney–client privilege is dead!" Trump tweeted April 10.

About nine days later, Trump turned to former New York City mayor and federal prosecutor Rudy Giuliani to pad a legal team that has experienced several departures. Giuliani has since been an almost constant presence on cable news programs or in media reports, even admitting to Fox News host Sean Hannity that Trump had paid Cohen back the $130,000 given to adult film actor Stormy Daniels (whose real name is Stephanie Clifford) in October 2016.

The president's attorneys have reportedly tussled over whether or not Trump should sit down for a face-to-face interview with Mueller's team. Giuliani said last week that he believed Trump was Mueller's "last witness" and dismissed any idea that the special counsel would bring in any of the president's children for an interview.
