The FBI raid on Trump attorney Michael Cohen’s home, office and hotel room is renewing aging Congresswoman Maxine Waters’ hopes of impeachment, and she’s playing up reported recordings between Cohen and his client as the smoking gun.
Trump & his backroom advisor Sean Hannity are bosom buddies — both getting advice from the "fixer" Michael Cohen. Can't wait for the tell-all tapes. Get ready for impeachment!!

“Trump & his backroom advisor Sean Hannity are bosom buddies – both getting advice from the ‘fixer’ Michael Cohen,” Waters posted to Twitter.
“Can’t wait for the tell-all tapes,” she wrote. “Get ready for impeachment!!”
Cohen claimed Hannity as one of his few clients during federal court proceedings this week, when his attorney pushed to protect the attorney client privilege between Cohen and the president.
“A source familiar with the matter” allegedly told CNN Cohen recorded conversations with a lawyer representing two women who claimed to have had affairs with Trump. The FBI is investigating whether Cohen’s dealings with the women violated banking or campaign finance laws. Cohen has denied any wrongdoing.
The development comes amid an investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller into Russian interference in the 2016 election and alleged collusion with the Trump campaign. Waters has staked her re-election on stoking hatred against the president with relentless calls to “Impeach 45!” that began before he took office.
