In one shocking raid, the FBI just blew up attorney client privilege

Yesterday, the FBI raided the New York City home, office and hotel room of Michael Cohen, President Trump’s personal lawyer. Cohen is under investigation for potential bank and wire fraud, and campaign finance violations.

Special counsel Robert Mueller apparently found evidence of a potential crime, but determined it’s not related to the Russia investigation. Based on this evidence, Mueller sent a referral to Federal prosecutors in New York, who then obtained the search warrant.

Because the raid was inside a lawyer’s office, the Justice Department had to sign off on it. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein gave the approval.

The FBI seized Cohen’s computer, phone, business records, tax documents, and emails about his personal finances and his clients. The seized documents reportedly include communications between Cohen and President Trump. How the government plans to tiptoe around attorney-client privilege in this situation is unknown.

This move by the Justice Department is very rare and extremely volatile if they don’t have rock solid evidence.

Meanwhile, the media is ecstatic about the seizure of records related to Cohen’s 2016 payment of $130,000 to adult-film star, Stephanie Clifford, better known as Stormy Daniels. Cohen denies the payment violated campaign finance laws. President Trump has denied the affair with Daniels and denies knowing about Cohen’s payment to her.

The truth continues to be elusive in this never-ending investigation

Michael Cohen’s lawyer, Stephen Ryan, called the raid, “completely inappropriate and unnecessary.” Of course, lawyers are paid to say stuff like that, especially if you’re a lawyer for a lawyer. Ryan also said Cohen has already fully cooperated and turned over thousands of “non-privileged” documents to congressional investigators.

The truth continues to be elusive in this never-ending investigation, but one thing is certain --- the media is utterly convinced Stormy Daniels is directly linked to Russian collusion. In fact, her name is probably Red Sparrow and she was trained by Putin himself.

The strange part of the FBI raid on Cohen’s office is that it's only kind of related to Mueller’s Russia investigation. Why does the focus of Mueller’s investigation keep expanding? It seems to be a web that grows constantly in new directions, without actually leading somewhere.

America can handle the truth in this case, whatever it is. But I’m not sure it can handle never getting to the truth.

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
