John Sununu says the federal raid on the home and office of President Donald Trump's personal attorney Michael Cohen might be counterproductive to Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is separately probing Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential race and whether the Trump campaign was involved.

Bush, told host John Bachman on Newsmax TV's "Newsmax Now" on Monday.
