Trump attorney and longtime "fixer" Michael Cohen is reportedly getting ready to cooperate with prosecutors in exchange for a plea deal.
A source tells CNN reporter Shimon Prokupecz that Cohen "has indicated to family and friends he is willing to cooperate with federal investigators to alleviate the pressure on himself and his family."

CNN's Kara Scannell further reports that Cohen is increasingly feeling isolated from Trump and his inner circle.
"Cohen has expressed anger with the treatment he has gotten from the President, who has minimized his relationship with Cohen, and comments from the President's lawyer Rudy Giuliani," Scannell writes. "The treatment has left him feeling isolated and more open to cooperating."
Earlier on Friday, Trump tried to distance himself from Cohen, as he said that Cohen was no longer his attorney, while also saying that he always "liked" Cohen -- which implies that his affections for Cohen were squarely in the past tense.
Cohen's office was raided by the FBI this past April. He has reportedly told friends that he is bracing to be arrested within a matter of days.
