On Monday, the FBI raided the office, home, and hotel room of President Trump's attorney Michael Cohen.
The raid, which required approval from senior officials at the Department of Justice, came at the request of the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York and was based on a tip from special counsel Robert Mueller.
Mueller will be able to use any information generated by the raid in his own investigation.
The reason for the raid has not been confirmed, but many news sites report that the FBI obtained documents related to the $130,000 payment to Stormy Daniels. Some, including President Trump, suggest that this raid represented a severe breach of attorney-client privilege.

What does this raid mean for different parties? When is it acceptable to breach attorney-client privilege?
