Report: Michael Cohen ‘Likely’ to Cooperate With Federal Prosecutors

Michael Cohen, the embattled former lawyer of President Donald Trump, is likely to split from his current legal representative and cooperate with federal investigators, according to a new report. Cohen's attorneys, McDermott partners Stephen Ryan, based in Washington, D.C., and Todd Harrison, based in NY, did not respond to emails and phone calls seeking comment.

"It looks like once again I'm about to be proven right", Avenatti told The News Tuesday afternoon, noting he said last month that Cohen would be indicted within 90 days.

Federal District Court Judge Kimba Woods appointed a special master to review the documents for attorney-client privilege issues, a process that is to be completed by Friday.

President Trump's attorney Rudy Giuliani says there's nothing for Cohen to cooperate about in regards to Trump and discusses the Mueller investigation on 'The Ingraham Angle'.

The center of Cohen's troubles is a $130,000 hush-money payment that he facilitated to porn star Stormy Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, just weeks before the 2016 presidential election to keep her quiet about her allegation of a 2006 affair with Trump. the Federal Bureau of Investigation sought documents related to that payment and other similar agreements with women during the April raids.

Less than 1% of the documents seized in the Federal Bureau of Investigation raid of Cohen's offices were said to be protected under attorney-client privilege.

The firm's spokesperson did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

On Wednesday morning, MSNBC's Katy Tur reported that her sources confirmed the report that Cohen expects to be arrested imminently. Haberman claimed this report echoed ABC's initial claims and said Cohen was "increasingly likely to flip". That case focuses on whether Cohen committed bank fraud, wire fraud, or campaign-finance violations related to his work for Trump and his payment to the adult-film actress Stormy Daniels shortly before the 2016 presidential election.

Cohen has been referred to as President Donald Trump's pit bull, fixer, and consigliere.

On the other hand, the reporting to this point does not specify exactly what the payment dispute is about, so it's possible that it concerns an apparent conflict of interest for Cohen's attorney, Stephen Ryan. Cohen's attorney at the time of the raids released a terse statement shortly after the April raids arguing that the seized documents included "the unnecessary seizure of protected attorney-client communications between a lawyer and his clients". As one report described it, "Of the 291,770 electronic files contained on two of Mr. Cohen's cellphones and on one of his iPads, 148 are privileged and will be withheld if the judge approves".

Cohen has worked for Trump in various capacities since 2011.
