Fredericksen Comments on FBI Raid on Trump Lawyer’s Home, Office, Hotel

11 April 2018 CNN News
Partner Scott Fredericksen was quoted in a CNN interview, “Raid on Trump’s lawyer was connected to ‘Access Hollywood’ tape,” about questions raised by the FBI’s decision to execute a search warrant on the home, office and hotel room of President Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen.

Fredericksen called the situation bizarre. “You know if you wrote a script about this, no one would believe it,” he said.

He also said Trump’s insistence that he didn’t know about Cohen’s $130,000 payment to porn star Stormy Daniels could complicate matters for Cohen. “Well the natural question is then, if the president didn’t know about it, did he authorize his payments some other way to Stormy Daniels?” Fredericksen said. “If he didn’t, why were these payments made?”
