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 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.
