WestVirginiaRebel Posted June 13, 2018 Share Posted June 13, 2018 ABC News Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s longtime confidant and former personal attorney, is likely to cooperate with federal investigators, as his lawyers are expected to leave the case, sources said. To date, Cohen has been represented by Stephen Ryan and Todd Harrison of the Washington and New Yorkfirm, McDermott, Will & Emery LLP, but a source representing this matter has disclosed to ABC News that they are not expected to represent him going forward. Ryan declined to comment. A source familiar with the matter tells ABC News that among the reasons for Cohen’s change in counsel is a fee dispute. No replacement counsel has been identified as of this time. Cohen, who has been under criminal investigation for months, which is separate from the special counsel case, has been rushing to meet U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Kimba Wood’s Friday deadline to complete a privilege review of over 3.7 million documents seized in the April 9 raids of Cohen’s New York properties and law office. Representatives from the Southern District of New York declined to comment. ________ As the worm turns. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
