(Newser) – President Trump was quick to respond to news of the FBI raiding the office of his personal attorney, saying Monday that it was "an attack on our country" and "on what we all stand for," CNN reports. "I just heard that they broke into the office of one of my personal attorneys. Good man. And it's a disgraceful situation.

An official tells CNN it was Trump's idea to address the raid of Michael Cohen's office and hotel room. More on the raid here. (Read more President Trump stories.)
