Michael Cohen Dropped His Legal Representation, Is Expected to Cooperate with Mueller

Michael Cohen, who was President Donald Trump's longtime personal lawyer, is likely preparing to cooperate with federal prosecutors once he is dropped by the law firm that has been representing him, ABC News reports.

A replacement firm has not been named, ABC News said.

"As the investigation widens, and with Mr. Cohen's legal team in turmoil, the chances increase that Mr. Cohen could cooperate with prosecutors", theNew York Times confirmed.

A judge had set a deadline of Friday for Cohen's legal team to finish its review of the seized documents.

Trump backs out of G-7 communique, criticises Canadian PM Trudeau
Shortly after that statement was published online, Trump complained about comments made by Trudeau and revoked his support. It was a picture that, by several accounts , summed up the tense G7 summit over the weekend in Quebec, Canada.

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

The unnamed source who spoke to the NYDN characterized Cohen as "very stressed out" about the possibility of an indictment.

The investigation into Cohen is separate from special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into possible collusion between Russian Federation and the 2016 Trump campaign.

This report follows a Vanity Fair story Tuesday that said Cohen is telling friends that he expects to be arrested at any moment. (Reached for comment, Cohen wrote in a text message, "Your alleged source is wrong!") The specter of Cohen flipping has Trump advisers on edge.

Whether or not that's the case (and whether or not Trump would consider a pardon) aside, it is notable that President Trump has reportedly been holding his tongue on Cohen matters because he doesn't want to give him more reason to flip and dig up dirt.

The New York Times' Maggie Haberman went so far as to hint that Trump, while angry about Cohen's legal troubles and the bungling of the Stormy Daniels situation, is actually afraid of Cohen.

Trump has acknowledged that he reimbursed Cohen for the payment, but he has denied that the affair with Daniels took place.

Instead, the judge appointed former federal judge Barbara Jones as a "special master" who could examine the materials to resolve any disputes over attorney client privilege. "If anyone can blow up Trump, it's him".
