Michael Cohen ‘Likely’ to Cooperate With Federal Prosecutors

On the eve of President Trump's birthday it was reported that his attorney Michael Cohen expects to be arrested hire new defense attorneys and cooperate with prosecutors

The bombshell we were all expecting finally dropped today, as ABC just reported that "a source representing this matter has disclosed to ABC News that the law firm handling the case for [Michael] Cohen is not expected to represent him going forward", and that Cohen is now "likely to cooperate with federal prosecutors in NY, sources said".

Cohen's attorneys have until Friday to finish their review of over 3.7 million documents seized from his home, office and hotel room in April.

Those lawyers are "not expected to represent him going forward", ABC News first reported.

Gasparino said that Fox Business has confirmed that one of Cohen's attorneys, Stephen Ryan, could drop out of the case.

Cohen denied the reports of his concern, telling Vanity Fair that their "alleged source is wrong!"

A person familiar with the matter told The Associated Press on Wednesday that Cohen's current legal team plans to stop handling the case and that Cohen has begun a hunt for new attorneys.

Trump's personal lawyer also handled many of his business dealings over the decades.

It's not clear what ABC's sources believe is the link between the lawyers dumping Cohen and his potential cooperation with prosecutors.

Mr. Trump, Cohen's client for years, bemoaned the raid of Cohen's records, declaring on Twitter the day after the raids, "Attorney-client privilege is dead!"

Neither Cohen, Ryan nor Harrison immediately responded to messages Wednesday. The Wall Street Journal reported the law firm, which has represented Cohen since June 2017, would part company with him at the end of the week.

"Person close to Cohen says he hasn't flipped yet, 'he's sending up a smoke signal to Trump: I need help'". "It's an attack on all we stand for", President Trump said during a meeting with senior military leadership at the White House in April. The New York Times said an issue with payment of legal bills prompted the change.
