Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump's longtime personal attorney and fixer, is parting ways with his legal team as federal prosecutors in NY pursue a criminal investigation of him, according to a person familiar with the case.

We're not talking here about special counsel Robert S. Mueller III's investigation of the Russian Federation scandal; this has to do with the USA attorney for the Southern District of NY.

The initial report issued by ABC News claimed that Cohen was imminently preparing to cooperate with prosecutors in the aforementioned matter before the SDNY.

Judge Wood has given Cohen's attorneys until Friday to complete the review of the remaining documents.

On the eve of President Trump's birthday, it was reported that his "fixer" Michael Cohen is fixing to be indicted, arrested, hire new defense attorneys and flip on the president in hopes of a plea deal.

The extent of what Cohen knows that could fall outside attorney-client privilege is unclear. Mr. Cohen also didn't respond to a request for comment.

Fox Business correspondent Charlie Gasparino reportedly that an attorney for Michael Cohen has "complained for some time" that legal bills are not being paid.

Millions of Facebook users hit by Facebook privacy bug
That way, users can reset a post that was inadvertently set to public back to being shared just with friends if they would like. The mistake happened, that company said, when it was building a new way for people to share "featured items" on their profiles.


"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". What he'd do if his loyalty were tested was always an important question, because of the assumption - shared by both the president's critics and his defenders - that if Cohen flipped on President Trump, he could do some real damage.

The friend, who spoke on condition of anonymity, also told Reuters that Cohen has complained that he does not feel he has received enough support from Trump in dealing with the situation.

"Look at Manafort", Giuliani said, likening Cohen's case to Manafort's.

At this point, there are no indications that Cohen has discussed a plea deal in the fraud investigation and he has not been charged.

Daniels alleges an affair with Trump, which the president has denied. Trump's lawyers have resigned themselves to the strong possibility that this investigation could lead Cohen to cooperate with prosecutors.

The special master, retired judge Barbara Jones, reported earlier this month that only 162 of the first 292,000 items she reviewed should be withheld on those grounds. Two other attorneys handled the bulk of Trump's and his organizations legal work.
