The FBI reportedly raided President Donald Trump's personal attorney's office and hotel room Monday, and that didn't sit very well with the president.

"It's a total disgraceful situation, it's a total witch hunt," Trump said. "It's an attack on our country in a true sense. It's an attack on what we all stand for."

The FBI reportedly collected emails, tax documents and business records from Michael Cohen's office, including information about a payment made to adult film star Stephanie Clifford. She says she had an affair with the president in 2006.

A source told The New York Times that Cohen is being investigated for possible bank fraud. Cohen's lawyer said investigators got a search warrant after a referral from special counsel Robert Mueller.
