Donald Trump Lawyer Michael Cohen Needs New Lawyers Himself

Michael Cohen, the longtime personal lawyer of Donald Trump, was preparing to part ways with the legal team that has been representing him in federal court in NY, according to multiple reports Wednesday.

Cohen has not been charged with a crime, but the Federal Bureau of Investigation raid of his home, hotel room and office in early April revealed that prosecutors had zeroed in on his personal financial dealings, including the payment he made to porn star Stormy Daniels on Trump's behalf before the 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.

Cohen is reportedly telling associates he expects to be arrested "any day now".

Unconfirmed reports also said that Cohen is likely to become a witness for the prosecution in a case against President Donald Trump. "There's also speculation that maybe Mr. Cohen needs a different type of lawyer if - lots of talk right now about Mr. Cohen cooperating with the feds in exchange for leniency if he faces a possible indictment over God knows what".

"Greatest achievement" of summit was trust-building between Kim, Trump: Seoul
It was shocking, he said, because these exercises are fundamental to our military relationship with South Korea . International advocacy groups like Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International didn't think that was enough.

A person familiar with the matter told The Associated Press on Wednesday that Cohen's current legal team plans to stop handling the case and that Cohen has begun a hunt for new attorneys. Ryan and partner Todd Harrison recently went to court to try and prevent investigators from seeing some confiscated files after a raid on Cohen's office and home in April.

"It resulted in the unnecessary seizure of protected attorney-client communications between a lawyer and his clients".

Cohen has found a new lawyer, but the name of Cohen's new lawyer was not yet known.

"Trump has been fuming about Cohen in private, blaming him for the messy Stormy Daniels situation", Haberman said. "If anyone can blow up Trump, it's him".

TheNew York Times on Wednesday confirmed Cohen is "parting from the lawyers who are representing him", but said Cohen "has not yet been contacted by the prosecutors who are conducting the inquiry".
