President Donald Trump blasted the federal government and one of his former attorneys Saturday morning for using “perhaps illegal” means to delegitimize his presidency.

“Inconceivable that the government would break into a lawyer’s office (early in the morning) – almost unheard of. Even more inconceivable that a lawyer would tape a client – totally unheard of & perhaps illegal,” Trump wrote in a tweet.

He added: “The good news is that your favorite President did nothing wrong!” Trump was referring to reports showing the FBI seizing a recording of Trump speaking with his then-attorney Michael Cohen discussing a potential payoff to a Playboy model who alleges an affair with the president.

The recording is said to be approximately two minutes in which Cohen and Trump discuss the Playboy model’s allegation that she had a nearly year-long affair with the president in 2006. (RELATED: FBI Reportedly Has ‘Tape’ Of Trump Talking Playboy Model Payoff With Cohen)

The tape of the recording between Trump and Cohen was taken two months before the 2016 presidential election. The tape was seized when the U.S. Southern District of New York raided Cohen’s offices after possible criminal information was referred by special counsel Robert Mueller.
