Trump Lawyer Michael Cohen Likely to Cooperate With Feds

Trump Lawyer Michael Cohen Likely to Cooperate With Feds

Cohen's lawyers had been scrambling to meet federal Judge Kimba Wood's Friday deadline to complete a review of over 3.7 million documents seized in the April 9 raids of Cohen's NY home, office and hotel room, the network reported.

President Donald Trump's longtime personal lawyer and self-described fixer Michael Cohen will likely cooperate with federal prosecutors, a new report said Wednesday.

Jones reported last week that of the first 300,000 items reviewed, she had determined that just 162 of them were covered by attorney-client privilege.

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. Still, sources told ABC that the new developments with regard to Cohen are expected to hit the White House, family members, staffers and counsels hard. Federal Judge Kimba Woods set a Friday deadline for that task. But not good news for Team Trump.

After FBI agents raided Cohen's office in April, Ryan and partner Todd Harrison went to court to try to keep investigators from seeing some confiscated files.

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

Stephen Ryan and Todd Harrison of the law firm McDermott, Will & Emery LLP were representing Cohen during a legal battle regarding the seizure of Cohen's files in Federal Bureau of Investigation raids of his home, hotel room, and office. He hasn't been charged with any crime. Mr. Cohen also didn't respond to a request for comment.
