According to two sources, federal investigators have wiretapped Michael Cohen’s phones.
Cohen, Trump’s longtime personal lawyer, has been under investigation for the $130,000 “hush money” he made to silence porn actress Stormy Daniels for the affair she had with Trump.
It is unclear how long the wiretap has been authorized. But according to a source, it has been in place since at least last month. This was when Cohen’s house, office, and hotel room were raided.

The source also added that there is at least one phone call between the White House and Cohen that was intercepted.
Trump’s legal team had advised him not to speak to Cohen. However, according to two sources close to Rudy Giuliani, Trump made calls to Cohen and never told Giuliani about them.
Also, according to the Washington Post’s Robert Costa, Guiliani is “furious” over this report.
Michael Avenatti, Daniels’ attorney, noted that this report shows that Trump and his people “have every reason to be concerned at this point.”
Avenatti said this during his interview with MSNBC.
This is a developing story.
