Michael Cohen expected to flip as attorneys leave case

Michael Cohen expected to flip as attorneys leave case”

Maggie Haberman, the well-connected reporter for the New York Times, says that Trump fixer Michael Cohen isn't trying to send "signals" to President Donald Trump that he needs help with his legal woes in the form of a pardon.

Only 162 of the hundreds of thousands of materials seized in the raid have been declared to have attorney-client protection.

The criminal probe into Cohen's business dealings stems in part from a referral by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating whether Trump's 2016 campaign colluded with Russian Federation to influence the US presidential election.

"It would be a conflict right now for him to be the president's attorney", Giuliani said on ABC's "This Week With George Stephanopoulos". Phone messages left for Ryan were not immediately returned.

According to the Associated Press, Cohen has been represented in an FBI investigation of his business dealings since 2017 by Stephen Ryan, a Washington lawyer he initially hired to prepare him for congressional testimony.

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

For a decade, Cohen has served as one of Trump's most trusted aides, scouting foreign real estate deals and handling sensitive transactions, including a hush deal made with the pornographic actor Stormy Daniels on the eve of the presidential election.

According to the Journal, Cohen is looking for a federal criminal lawyer in NY, preferably one with close connections to the Manhattan U.S. attorney's office.

"Not a good look and a disaster for Mr. Cohen and Mr. Trump", he said.

Cohen sued April 13 to try to block prosecutors from looking at communications protected by attorney-client privilege.
