Attorneys for Trump lawyer Cohen to end representation

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 reportedly made the decision as his lawyers race toward a Friday deadline to complete a privilege review of documents seized from his home and office in April.

After FBI agents raided Cohen's office in April, Ryan and his NY partner, Todd Harrison, went to court to try to keep investigators from seeing some of the confiscated files on the grounds that they were protected by attorney client privilege. Cohen, a 51-year-old father of two college-age children, recently told friends he expected to be arrested at any moment, Vanity Fair reported.

But as the investigation widens, and with Cohen's legal team in turmoil, the chances increase that Cohen could cooperate with prosecutors.

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

Investigators seized 3.7 million records in the raid, which Cohen's defense team argued he should have the first look at.

New reports say President Donald Trump's personal lawyer is searching for new attorneys as he's expected to cooperate with authorities.

A special master determined last week that just 162 of the 300,000 items she reviewed were protected by attorney-client privilege. Cohen wants to hire a lawyer who has a relationship with the US prosecutor's office in Manhattan, the source added.

"If anyone can blow up Trump, it's him", an unnamed White House official told Vanity Fair.

At least one reporter has said that despite the departure of his lawyers and the whispers of cooperation with the feds, Cohen is sending a message to Trump for help.
