The Federal Bureau of Investigation on Monday raided both the home and office of U.S. President Donald Trump's personal lawyer Michael Cohen, a law enforcement source told Reuters.

The New York Times reported that the FBI seized records on several topics, including payments to adult-film actress Stormy Daniels, who has said she had an affair with Trump.

The White House has denied that Trump had sex with Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford. Trump has said he did not know about a $130,000 payment made by Cohen to Daniels.
