Trump's personal attorney splits with his own legal team

Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump's personal lawyer, is searching for a new legal team to represent him in an FBI investigation of his business dealings.

The New York Times' Maggie Haberman went so far as to hint that Trump, while angry about Cohen's legal troubles and the bungling of the Stormy Daniels situation, is actually afraid of Cohen. This development, which is believed to be imminent, will likely hit the White House, family members, staffers and counsels hard.

Judge Kimba Wood set a June 15 deadline for Cohen's and Trump's lawyers to finish their review and has appointed a special master to vet their claims of privilege.

Roughly 3.7 million files were seized in the Cohen raid and are being reviewed to determine which ones may be subject to attorney-client privilege.


The New York Timesreported the law firm will stay with Cohen until the end of the week as his team reviews documents seized during an Federal Bureau of Investigation raid of Cohen's office and residence in April.

"He expects to be arrested because his lawyers, he says-to the friend-got a call from lawyers at the SDNY saying they're preparing paperwork", Tur reported. But not good news for Team Trump.

Federal prosecutors in NY have publicly said they are investigating alleged fraud in Cohen's business dealings, but haven't disclosed details. Mr. Cohen wants to hire a lawyer with close ties to the Manhattan U.S. attorney's office, the people said.

Without legal representation, it is likely that Mr. Cohen will cooperate with federal prosecutors in NY, a source told ABC News. He hasn't been charged with any crime. "These government tactics are also wrong because Mr. Cohen has cooperated completely with all government entities, including providing thousands of non-privileged documents to the Congress and sitting for depositions under oath", Ryan added.
