Trump fixer Michael Cohen’s lawyers flee — and he’s likely to flip soon: report

Published

on

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.

Published

on

This week it was revealed that President Donald Trump did something so concerning that an intelligence staffer felt the need to report the incident and file for whistleblower protections.

Trump asked Ukraine to look into scandals about former Vice President Joe Biden's son Hunter. For nearly a year, Trump's former attorney Rudy Giuliani was admittedly working to persuade officials in Ukraine to find "dirt" on the Bidens that they could use in the election. While the accusations against the younger Biden have been disproven, it's suspected, but not confirmed, that this was the incident detailed in the complaint.

Published

on

In an examination of the record-breaking number of Republican lawmakers who have decided to quit or retire despite holding a seat in solidly conservative congressional districts, one lawmaker admitted that he grew weary of having to deal with Donald Trump's daily Twitter habit and other shenanigans -- so he is calling it quits.

As the Washington Post reports, "Since Trump’s inauguration, a Washington Post analysis shows that nearly 40 percent of the 241 Republicans who were in office in January 2017 are gone or leaving because of election losses, retirements including former House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (Wis)."
