Michael Cohen Likely To Flip As Lawyers Abandon His Case

Michael Cohen Likely To Flip As Lawyers Abandon His Case

Michael Cohen, the longtime personal lawyer of Donald Trump, was preparing to part ways with the legal team that has been representing him in federal court in NY, according to multiple reports Wednesday.

The source said Cohen had not yet met with prosecutors to speak about a potential deal, and it's unclear whether either side is seeking one.

He is also being investigated by the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of NY, which the Post says is investigating him for potential wire fraud, bank fraud, and campaign finance law violations.

New reports say President Donald Trump's personal lawyer is searching for new attorneys as he's expected to cooperate with authorities. "So he would have had access to lots of very personal information involving his business dealings". Cohen played an integral role in early discussions about a possible Trump Tower in Moscow - negotiations that were going on during the early months of the 2016 presidential campaign.

White House officials in turn are reportedly concerned that the possibility of an arrest will cause Cohen to flip on Trump.

Following a 9 April raid on his residences and office, Cohen has been represented by Stephen Ryan and Todd Harrison of the firm McDermott, Will & Emery LLP.

While Cohen has not been charged with a crime, he is the subject of an investigation by federal prosecutors of alleged wire fraud and other crimes. "I think he's unsafe in a bunch of different ways".

Artemenko's comments show that Mueller, who is investigating possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation during the 2016 election, remains focused on Cohen.

Daniels, whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford, set up a crowdfunding page with Avenatti's assistance in March to pay for her lawsuit and her legal fees.

Cohen, now with no legal representation, is likely to cooperate with federal prosecutors in NY, sources said. Trump and his company, the Trump Organization, quickly joined in the suit. The magazine never published her story. The attorneys had not yet filed to Wood a notice to withdraw from the case. McDougal settled her lawsuit.

Cohen has been referred to as President Donald Trump's pit bull, fixer, and consigliere.

But Cohen, Hettena said, is "the guy who knows where all the bodies are buried".
