First and foremost: Attorney-Client Privilege is protected by the Bill of Rights. An attorney has to break the law in a major way before it can be appropriate to execute a warrant on their offices. President Trump has rights like any American. The notion that the federal government can abuse their powers by raiding his attorney’s office to gain access to privileged communications is outrageous and flies in the face of constitutional law.
The president is right. If the federal government can go fishing for crimes at the president’s lawyer’s office, they can go after anyone of us for any reason, valid or not. The Mueller Investigation, which is the 800 lb. gorilla in the room, looms large as the allegedly “unrelated” investigation by the FBI will turn over anything remotely salacious or incriminating to Mueller’s witch hunt.
As the liberal Harvard legal scholar Alan Dershowitz said Monday, “And now they say, just based on probable cause … they can burst into the office, grab all the computers, and then give it to another FBI agent and say, ‘You’re the firewall. We want you now to read all these confidential communications, tell us which ones we can get and which ones we can’t get.’ If this were Hillary Clinton being investigated and they went into her lawyer’s office, the ACLU would be on every television station in America, jumping up and down”.
