ABC News reports former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen is likely to cooperate with federal prosecutors as the noose tightens following FBI raids on his apartment, office and hotel room and as his current lawyers leave the case.
The law firm handling Cohen’s case is “not expected to represent him going forward,” ABC News reports. He has been represented by Stephen Ryan and Todd Harrison of McDermott, Will & Emery LP.
ABC News reports, Cohen with “no legal representation is likely to cooperate with federal prosecutors in New York. Cohen has told friends that he expects to be arrested soon. The court will turn over all Cohen raid documents to prosecutors on Friday.
MSNBC’s Katy Tur reports that a source close to Cohen told her that lawyers at the Southern District of New York reportedly called his attorneys, saying they were “preparing paperwork” to arrest Cohen.
Trump ranted like a lunatic following the FBI raids that came about over his hush money payment to porn star Stormy Daniels 11 days before the 2016 presidential election.
Separately, Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort has a bail hearing on Friday. His bail may be revoked and he ends up being thrown in jail for witness tampering. In other words, Friday is a day when you can expect a Twitter meltdown from Donald Trump.
