Ex-Trump lawyer Cohen likely to cooperate as his attorneys leave case

Ex-Trump lawyer Cohen likely to cooperate as his attorneys leave case

Rudy Giuliani, an attorney for President Trump, on Wednesday tried to put to rest claims that the president's personal attorney Michael Cohen might cooperate with special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation. 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".

Cohen is now represented in the matter by attorneys Todd Harrison and Steve Ryan, with the New York City-based firm of McDermott, Will & Emery LLP.

Longtime Trump attorney Michael Cohen continues to be under pressure to cooperate with federal prosecutors, after the raids of his home and office in April.

Any cooperation by Cohen with prosecutors would represent a significant blow to Trump, whose campaign is under investigation for alleged collusion with Russian Federation and who regularly expresses acute frustration with investigators.

Roughly 3.7 million files were seized in the Cohen raid and are being reviewed to determine which ones may be subject to attorney-client privilege. (Reached for comment, Cohen wrote in a text message, "Your alleged source is wrong!") The specter of Cohen flipping has Trump advisers on edge.

"There's a lot of speculation about whether Mr. Cohen can pay Mr. Ryan's fees", the Fox Business correspondent continued.

ABC News was first to report on the legal team change Wednesday.

"The key is to find out who the new lawyer is", Dershowitz told Business Insider, adding that Cohen could be seeking out a NY attorney he refers to as "prosecutors in defense attorney's clothing".

Gasparino said that Fox Business has confirmed that one of Cohen's attorneys, Stephen Ryan, could drop out of the case.

Asked if the Trump team had any concerns Cohen might have tape recordings they are unaware of, Giuliani said the president was and is "clean as a whistle". Cohen is under investigation for bank fraud and violating campaign-finance law.

He has been making damning headlines ever since it was revealed in January that he brokered a hush agreement between Trump and porn star Stormy Daniels.

A pardon of Cohen may not help Trump as much as people think. Two other attorneys handled the bulk of Trump's and his organizations legal work.
