Reports: FBI raid sought communications between Cohen, Trump campaign

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON -

More is being revealed about the scope of the FBI raid on President Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen.

It includes communications with the Trump campaign and information related to the infamous "Access Hollywood" tape.

President Trump apologized after the 2005 recording was released during the 2016 campaign.

The FBI's search warrant reportedly sought records related to the tape, along with bank records and payments made to two women who say they had affairs with the president.

Meanwhile, another alleged hush-money payment is surfacing involving the president.

The AP says the parent company of the tabloid the "National Enquirer" made a $30,000 payment to a former doorman at Trump World Tower in Manhattan.

In return, that doorman agreed to not tell a rumor he'd heard that Mr. Trump fathered an illegitimate child with an employee at one of his businesses.
