Michael Cohen expected to flip as attorneys leave case

Report: Michael Cohen ‘Likely’ to Cooperate With Federal Prosecutors

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.

Mr. Cohen hasn't yet decided whether he will cooperate with prosecutors in the case, according to one of those people.

When agents searched Cohen's home, office and safety deposit box and seized his phones this spring, they sought a wide variety of information, including his involvement in arranging a secret $130,000 payment to the porn actress Stormy Daniels, who said she had a sexual tryst with Trump years ago. A federal judge has set a June 15 deadline to determine which records from that raid fall under attorney-client privilege. Trump tweeted after the raid.

It wasn't immediately clear what prompted the change or who would take over.

The switch in legal representation could be a prelude for a deal for Cohen to cooperate with prosecutors, legal analysts said, although the Journal reported that Cohen had not yet made such a decision. Cohen denied that in a statement to Vanity Fair.

Google Home can now handle three voice requests in one go
Additionally, Android Police reports that the Multiple Actions feature, which was announced at I/O 2018 , has also gone live. According to the report, the new feature works by combining voice queries with the word "and" in between different requests.

What Cohen decides to do going forward is important not only to his case, but to special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian election meddling and any ties to Trump associates. Still, sources told ABC that the new developments with regard to Cohen are expected to hit the White House, family members, staffers and counsels hard.

"It's an attack on our country in a true sense".

"Trump should be super anxious about Michael Cohen [flipping]", a former White House official said, noting, "If anyone can blow up Trump, it's him". But these are his only two real options, as his case plays out in the Southern District of NY.

McDermott Will & Emery, a NY and Washington firm, has been representing Mr. Cohen.
