There are many questions about the dramatic search of the law office of President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, Michael Cohen, his Trump Tower residence and the hotel room where he currently lives while his home is being renovated.

Trump tweeted that the FBI search was: a break-in; a reason to fire special counsel Robert Mueller; the end of attorney-client privilege; a witch hunt; a disgrace; and “an attack on our country.”

Those claims have no relation to reality or truth and no matter how many times Trump says it, it won’t be any truer than his repetitious tweets screaming that there is “NO OBSTRUCTION. NO COLLUSION.”

But, the tweet did motivate me to provide some facts and some answers.
