A new report from ABC News claims that longtime Trump attorney Michael Cohen is getting close to accepting a deal to cooperate with federal investigators.
According to ABC’s sources, the law firm that has been representing Cohen so far “is not expected to represent him going forward” after this week.
The bigger news, however, is that Cohen is now likely to flip after being abandoned by his current legal counsel.
“Cohen, now with no legal representation, is likely to cooperate with federal prosecutors in New York,” the ABC report claims. “This development, which is believed to be imminent, will likely hit the White House, family members, staffers and counsels hard.”
Cohen and his attorneys have until Friday to complete a privilege review of more than 3.7 million documents that were seized as part of an FBI raid on Cohen’s office earlier this year. Once that review is complete, ABC News claims, then Cohen will be without counsel.
Vanity Fair’s Gabriel Sherman reported on Tuesday that Cohen has told friends that he expects to be arrested within a matter of days, although Cohen at the time publicly denied that was true.
