Cohen Reportedly Set To Cooperate With Prosecutors, Drops Legal Representation

After two months of legal wrangling following an April 9 FBI raid on his home, hotel room and office, sources close to Trump personal attorney Michael Cohen say that he's preparing to cooperate with prosecutors from the Southern District of New York who have been overseeing the criminal probe against him, ABC News reported Wednesday morning.

In the latest sign that he could be preparing to cooperate, ABC said the law firm that has represented Cohen so far will not be representing him going forward. So far, Cohen has been represented by Stephen Ryan and Todd Harrison of the Washington and New York firm McDermott, Will & Emery LLP. No replacement counsel has been identified at this time. The report comes as Cohen's attorneys are rushing to review 3.7 million documents seized in the raid for signs they could be protected by attorney-client privilege by the Friday deadline. Of 300,000 documents reviewed so far, the "special master" supervising the dissemination of documents seized in the raid said that only 162 of them were protected.

The possibility of Cohen turning states witness could create problems for the White House, Cohen's family members and lawyers that have been working on the multifaceted investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. Needless to say, the Democrats are ecstatic.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Trump should have known about the very real probability of this happening to Cohen before he hired him as main representation in the first place.

The fact that Trump didn't really consider this, before Cohen started representing him in the Special Counsel investigation, does give one a moment... to pause.
