Guilfoyle: Feds 'Better Have Really Compelling Probable Cause' for Cohen Raid
Kimberly Guilfoyle reacted to the federal raid on President Trump's personal attorney's properties.
On Monday, FBI agents raided the office, home and hotel room of Michael Cohen, who has been under scrutiny for his payments to adult film star Stormy Daniels ahead of the 2016 presidential election.
"Can you imagine at the inception [of the Mueller probe] where this investigation was supposed to go and where it has traveled, far beyond where the initial scope [was]?" Guilfoyle said.
The raid, though not formally a decision by special counsel Robert Mueller, is reported to be tied to the subject matter Mueller is investigating.
"There's been such a wide swath of net cast here trying to get anything [on Trump] that they can," Guilfoyle said.
Guilfoyle added that, as a former prosecutor in California, she once brought a homicide case against two attorneys.
When acquiring documents for evidence, she said it was "very complicated" to scour the suspects' homes without taking documents deemed "attorney-client privilege."
In that way, she said there was likely a sensitive legal requirement that would have to be followed when taking things from Cohen's home.
"You have to have someone in to make sure you aren't taking anything improper," she said.
"They better have some really compelling probable cause to support this," she said, adding that it should be a concern of all Americans no matter their political affiliation.
