the contents of his law office probably had a good deal to do with it

The search warrant raid on the office, home and hotel room of Michael Cohen, the personal counsel to the President, is an extraordinarily unusual and highly aggressive move by federal prosecutors. It sends a strong message that Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation has uncovered a lead suggesting criminality related to Cohen's law office probably unrelated to Mueller's Russia election meddling probe. even if they dont get the lawyer up on charges it tends to be expensive way to have to defend your self when they have all your records

In 2008, Manno’s law office was raided by federal investigators pursuing a racketeering case against a suspected mobster who was a client and friend of the lawyer. The FBI copied Manno’s computer hard drives and carted away evidence. Three years later, when New Jersey prosecutors indicted Manno’s client for fraud, money laundering and extortion, they also charged the lawyer. While he was ultimately acquitted, Manno spent years defending himself. He predicted a tough road ahead for Cohen.
so that probably had a good deal to do with it

I keep wondering what he was facing to take the plea and flip? he must have been in to some really bad shi..

We know what he plead guilty to but what was he really facing?

At the time his office was raided Trump was still on his side so you would think anything he gets convicted of he would just get a pardon as long as he stayed loyal.

So what is Mueller overlooking just to get this dirt on Trump? It must be huge to make him flip on Trump, the one person who can get him out of anything.

He is doing it because of the way Trump and Giuliani came after him:

Nothing made public so far from Cohen’s criminal case indicates he has agreed to cooperate with prosecutors, but Davis said that was simply a “distinction without a difference.” Cohen is intent on telling the truth to whoever asks him and is “more than happy” to tell Mueller all that he knows, Davis said, calling that pledge, “the functional equivalent of cooperation.”

Cohen forged his new path amid months of scrutiny from federal investigations and a public falling-out with the president, for whom Cohen once said he would “take a bullet.” But what compelled him to take a plea deal and potentially flip on Trump?

Cohen told confidants he was disappointed and angry that Trump and his team — namely his lawyer Rudy Giuliani — had repeatedly bashed his reputation and character.

Cohen suggested that the attacks helped pave the way for his guilty plea and possible cooperation, according to a person who has spoken to the lawyer in the last 24 hours but was not authorized to discuss private conversations and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.

He is doing what he's doing because of Trump, there are no other conspiracy theories about it. He is not threatened, his family and his dogs are not going to be shot -- this is Trump's making and he has to live with his choices.

I'm not as politically saavy as most of you so maybe someone can help me out. Which law did Trump break? I've listened to the Cohen recording. Sounded like Cohen was letting Trump know he had a plan to deal with hush money and not to worry because it was being handled. I'm a simple man though and maybe I missed something.

If he's guilty of a crime, by all means charge him and let the cards fall where they may. I'm for justice regardless of the political affiliations of the accused. That said, a $50,000,000 taxpayer funded investigation into Russian Collusion to find out Trump likes bonking porn stars is the biggest crime thus far.
