The FBI raided Donald Trump’s longtime lawyer Michael Cohen’s office, home, and hotel room, and — unbelievably — the former reality show star’s day just got worse. Trump lashed out after the raid and said “It’s an attack on our country,” then targeted Attorney General Jeff Sessions because he recused himself from the Russia probe. What Donald does not understand is that a judge had to see enough evidence to OK the search warrants.
Welp, Trump is having a bad day with judges. “The victims of Donald Trump’s fraudulent university will finally receive the relief they deserve,” NY State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman tweeted. “A federal court just finalized our $25M Trump University settlement.”

U.S. District Court Judge Gonzalez Curiel ordered the finalizing of the settlement. That’s the same judge that Trump previously targeted for his heritage, insinuating that Judge Curiel could not be impartial due to Trump’s own disposition toward Hispanic people.
In February, the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals rejected arguments from a lone objector who threatened to derail the $25 million settlement. The objector said at the time that she was denied due process rights because the settlement gave her too few chances to opt out and said she wanted to pursue legal action against the so-called president in another lawsuit.
But now, participants in Trump’s failed real estate school will soon be able to receive their share of the $25 million settlement Trump reached with the state of New York back in 2016.
Associates of Trump’s have been indicted, his lawyer’s office has been raided. Federal prosecutors in Brooklyn have sought bank records about entities associated with the family company of Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law, and senior adviser. Trump himself is being looked at by special counsel Robert Mueller. But, first, Trump had better cut a $25 million check for the victims of his scam university.
