Here’s Why Michael Cohen Might be Parting Ways With His Attorneys

I think that Michael Cohen is in a very, very bad spot" MSNBC reporter: "Detained immigrant children "effectively incarcerated" in Texas facility GOP chairwoman: "Anyone who doesn't support Trump "will be making a mistake" MORE's attorney, Rudy Giuliani, is throwing cold water on reports that Michael Cohen, Trump's longtime personal lawyer, is preparing to cooperate with investigators in the special counsel's Russian Federation probe. She said that a source close to Cohen said "his lawyers got a call from lawyers at the Southern District of NY saying they were preparing paperwork".

According to ABC News, a source said McDermott, Will & Emery LLP was no longer representing Cohen and that replacement counsel had not been announced.

The initial report issued by ABC News claimed that Cohen was imminently preparing to cooperate with prosecutors in the aforementioned matter before the SDNY.

Sources close to Cohen have told reporters that now that document production is nearly complete, he will need a criminal defense attorney in NY; his current lawyer, Stephen Ryan, works out of Washington. Without an attorney, sources told ABC that it's likely Cohen will begin to cooperate with prosecutors.

When asked if the Trump team was anxious that Cohen may have tape recordings that exist without their knowledge, Giuliani was firm that the president was and is "clean as a whistle". Mr. Cohen also didn't respond to a request for comment. Cohen is reportedly set to part ways with his legal team.

President Trump's personal lawyer Michael Cohen leaves federal court in Manhattan. "These government tactics are also wrong because Mr. Cohen has cooperated completely with all government entities", Stephen Ryan said.

At this point, there are no indications that Cohen has discussed a plea deal in the fraud investigation and he has not been charged.

He's arranged hush-money payments to women alleging they'd had affairs with Trump. His new attorneys will rack up considerable billable hours familiarizing themselves with the seized documents he and the Trump organization just paid 15 of Cohen's soon-to-be former attorneys to comb through.

Above the Law offers its speculation on possible reasons for the split. The former judge, Barbara Jones, reported earlier this month that only 162 of the first 292,000 items she reviewed should be withheld on those grounds.

But there's little question that Trump is very anxious about what Cohen might tell prosecutors.
