Michael Cohen ‘Likely’ to Cooperate With Federal Prosecutors

13 June 2018

Cohen, now with no legal representation, is likely to cooperate with federal prosecutors in NY, sources said.

A retired judge is reviewing more than 3.7 million items seized in the Federal Bureau of Investigation search to determine whether they should be held back from investigators because they are privileged attorney-client communications or are personal.

Cohen has maintained that he's innocent of wrongdoing, and Trump has called the raid on his lawyer an assault on attorney client privilege.

The split could signal a shift in legal strategy and comes amid mounting pressure on Cohen as criminal charges could become likely.

"It would be a conflict right now for him to be the president's attorney", Giuliani said on ABC's "This Week With George Stephanopoulos".

The firm's spokesperson did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

The seized documents related to several matters, including Trump's payment to porn star Stephanie Clifford, who goes by Stormy Daniels.
