Trump Lawyer Michael Cohen Likely to Flip and Cooperate With Feds

Posted June 15, 2018

The Wall Street Journal reported that Cohen is seeking a lawyer with close ties to the US Attorney's Office for the Southern District of NY. The lawyers are expected to leave his case going forward, ABC reported, without elaborating. CNN reports Cohen has hired a new lawyer, but not said who.

Michael Avenatti, attorney for porn star Stormy Daniels, told Stephen Colbert on Wednesday that he expects Michael Cohen to be indicted, arrested and eventually flip on President Donald Trump.

Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump's longtime personal lawyer, may be poised to cooperate with prosecutors in the Manhattan US attorney's office.

"Attorney-client privilege is dead!" A McDermott spokeswoman did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

In addition to being the focus of the NY federal investigation, Cohen is also a key player in several threads of the Russian Federation investigation.

But the Times report also offered a less immediate timeline for the departure of Cohen's legal team than ABC's initial report did.

Donald Trump's former personal lawyer is expected to cooperate with the Mueller investigation.

Getting that warrant isn't possible if a prosecutor is on a fishing expedition for something they can use to flip someone like Cohen; they need to have strong evidence that the attorney has committed a crime.

"Michael Cohen, I think, would tell you he's got nothing incriminating with the president", the attorney said.

Cohen's business is now under investigation in Manhattan, which includes the controversial $130,000 hush money payment made to porn star Stormy Daniels just before the 2016 presidential election. Cohen is now under federal investigation for wire and bank fraud, as well as possible campaign finance violations.

Judge Wood subsequently appointed former federal judge Barbara Jones to act as a "special master" to conduct an impartial review of the materials and to referee any disputes between Cohen and the government. In a late May hearing, Wood ordered Cohen's team to complete that review by Friday.

Trump has said he never had an affair with Daniels.

That's a bit of speculation on my part - maybe there's some other reason Cohen's lawyers are leaving - but as of now, it's the only connection that's evident.

Cohen has worked for Trump in various capacities since 2011.
