  • Report: Michael Cohen ‘Likely’ to Cooperate With Federal Prosecutors

President Donald Trump's longtime former lawyer and fixer, Michael Cohen, could soon be fighting his many legal challenges without Big Law counsel at his side.

McDermott Will & Emery, a NY and Washington firm, has been representing Mr. Cohen.

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

Cohen has found a new lawyer, but the name of Cohen's new lawyer was not yet known.

After FBI agents raided Cohen's office in April, Ryan and his NY partner, Todd Harrison, went to court to try to keep investigators from seeing some of the confiscated files on the grounds that they were protected by attorney client privilege.

President Trump's former personal lawyer Michael Cohen is facing pressure to share information related to the Russian Federation investigation.

The judge in the case appointed a special master to determine which files fell under attorney-client privilege, and it turned out to be only a tiny amount. When asked as to whether Cohen was sending a smoke signal to Trump for a potential pardon, Haberman decisively responded, "No".




On Wednesday morning, MSNBC's Katy Tur reported that her sources confirmed the report that Cohen expects to be arrested imminently. Cohen's attorney at the time of the raids released a terse statement shortly after the April raids arguing that the seized documents included "the unnecessary seizure of protected attorney-client communications between a lawyer and his clients".

The probe into Cohen is being handled by federal prosecutors in Manhattan, who were made aware of alleged wrongdoing by Mueller's team of investigators.

Fox Business also ran a report on this exact issue where Gasparino said, "There's a lot of speculation about whether Mr. Cohen can pay Mr. Ryan's fees".

Gasparino said that Fox Business has confirmed that one of Cohen's attorneys, Stephen Ryan, could drop out of the case. "No campaign finance violations".

He's arranged hush-money payments to women alleging they'd had affairs with Trump. In a late May hearing, Wood ordered Cohen's team to complete that review by Friday.

Cohen has worked for Trump in various capacities since 2011. You would think the president would be happy to pick up Cohen's legal bills, since the whole point of the document review is to protect material related to Cohen's work on Trump's behalf that isn't related to this case.
