Michael Cohen ‘Likely’ to Cooperate With Federal Prosecutors

  • Avenatti Russian government is trying to smear

The prosecutors are turning up the heat on Mr. Cohen.

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.

"There's a lot of speculation about whether Mr. Cohen can pay Mr. Ryan's fees", the Fox Business correspondent continued.

Getting that warrant isn't possible if a prosecutor is on a fishing expedition for something they can use to flip someone like Cohen; they need to have strong evidence that the attorney has committed a crime. "Now it may be happening", he said. You would think the president would be happy to pick up Cohen's legal bills, since the whole point of the document review is to protect material related to Cohen's work on Trump's behalf that isn't related to this case.

Now, it looks as if he just might be.

Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump's longtime personal attorney, is parting ways with his legal team as he continues to face a federal criminal investigation, according to a person familiar with the case. Cohen is under investigation for bank fraud and violating campaign-finance law.

But even before then, Trump and Kim could emerge from their meetings on Tuesday declaring a second day of meetings. That's according to South Korea's presidential office of Cheong Wa Dae at a press briefing in Singapore on Monday.

A replacement firm has not been named, ABC News said. A source told CNN that Cohen hadn't met with prosecutors to try to cut a deal and that it was unclear whether he was trying to turn on Trump. ABC was the first with the report.

President Trump's attorney Rudy Giuliani says there's nothing for Cohen to cooperate about in regards to Trump and discusses the Mueller investigation on 'The Ingraham Angle'.

"But certainly if you're trying to make a deal, you're much better off having a lawyer who is on much better terms with the U.S. attorney's office", he said.

He has been making damning headlines ever since it was revealed in January that he brokered a hush agreement between Trump and porn star Stormy Daniels.

If Cohen agrees to cooperate, it would be part of what's known as a global resolution.

Cohen has been referred to at different times as Trump's fixer, pit bull, and consigliere.

Cohen has been telling friends he fears his arrest is imminent, the source told the New York Daily News.

"Now it may be happening", Whiting said.

Cohen has worked for Trump in various capacities since 2011.

Last week President Trump was asked about pardoning Cohen to keep him from talking to Mueller.

"It certainly could signal an attempt to make a friendly deal with the prosecutor", Dershowitz said. Cohen wants to hire a lawyer who has a relationship with the US prosecutor's office in Manhattan, the source added.

Wright added: "This is a seismic development".
