Michael Cohen Likely To Flip As Lawyers Abandon His Case

Rudy Giuliani one of President Donald Trump's lawyers in the Russia investigation says Michael Cohen Trump's personal attorney is not cutting a deal with federal prosecutors

As attorneys for Michael Cohen rush to meet Judge Kimba Wood's Friday deadline to complete a privilege review of over 3.7 million documents seized in the April 9 raids of Cohen's NY properties and law office, a source representing this matter has disclosed to ABC News that the law firm handling the case for Cohen is not expected to represent him going forward.

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

CBS News correspondent Jeff Pegues, who has been in contact with Cohen, reports there appear to be changes afoot in his legal strategy going forward - on the key question of whether Cohen is ready to cooperate, or whether he will decide to do battle in court.

Tuesday, Gabriel Sherman of Vanity Fair reported Michael Cohen-who is under criminal investigation in NY over his business dealings-"has told friends that he expects to be arrested any day now".

New reports say President Donald Trump's personal lawyer is searching for new attorneys as he's expected to cooperate with authorities.

The switch in legal representation could be a prelude for a deal for Cohen to cooperate with prosecutors, legal analysts said, although the Journal reported that Cohen had not yet made such a decision. While the full implications for Cohen remain to be seen, having your lawyers leave while you're under criminal investigation by the federal government is not a positive development.

Trump has repeatedly said there was no collusion, and Russian Federation has denied interference.

"If anyone can blow up Trump, it's him", an unnamed White House official told Vanity Fair.

Cohen will hire a new lawyer for the next phase of the probe, the person said.

At least one reporter has said that despite the departure of his lawyers and the whispers of cooperation with the feds, Cohen is sending a message to Trump for help.
