Donald Trump cried that attorney-client privilege is something "of the past" after his personal attorney Michael Cohen's office and homes were raided by the FBI. It is unknown why the FBI raided Cohen's office and homes, but Trump is obviously concerned. Federal law makes it very difficult for authorities to raid lawyers offices and there is a specific set of rules they must adhere to in order to convince a judge to grant them a search warrant. A federal judge, after agreeing those rules were followed, signed off on a search warrant of Cohen's property.
