Trump Lawyer Michael Cohen Likely to Cooperate With Feds

Trump Lawyer Michael Cohen Likely to Cooperate With Feds

The law firm representing Michael Cohen is leaving the case, a possible sign that President Trump's personal attorney may flip and cooperate with federal prosecutors, according to a media report Wednesday.

The WSJ reports Cohen's attorneys had been reviewing more than 3.7 million documents seized from Cohen, ahead of a Friday deadline set by Judge Kimba Wood of the Southern District of NY.

Earlier this week, Vanity Fair and the New York Daily News reported that Cohen has been telling friends he expects to be arrested any day now.

Attorneys Stephen Ryan and Todd Harrison from NY firm McDermott, Will & Emery LLP had previously been representing Cohen. Plus, a certain leader of the free world known as President Donald J. Trump is reportedly pretty anxious that if he says anything about this, Cohen will tell all, whatever that is.

A person familiar with the matter told The Associated Press Cohen's current legal team plans to stop handling the case. (Reached for comment, Cohen wrote in a text message, "Your alleged source is wrong!") The specter of Cohen flipping has Trump advisers on edge.

Resident Evil 2 Remake Revealed, January 2019 Release Date Confirmed
The appearance of an original PlayStation is just one way that the Resident Evil 2 remake is paying homage to the original game. To round things out, a slew of new screenshots for Resident Evil 2 have been revealed.

Some of the materials taken in the raid were reportedly connected to the $130,000 payment Cohen made to adult-film actress Stormy Daniels, who alleges she had an affair with Trump in 2006. It's also important to note that Cohen cooperating with authorities was deemed "likely".

Trump has repeatedly said there was no collusion, and Russian Federation has denied interference.

Cohen sued April 13 to try to block prosecutors from looking at communications protected by attorney-client privilege.

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

"If anyone can blow up Trump, it's him", an unnamed White House official told Vanity Fair.
