Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s longtime confidant and former personal attorney, is likely to cooperate with federal investigators, as his lawyers are expected to leave the case, sources said.

To date, Cohen has been represented by Stephen Ryan and Todd Harrison of the Washington and New York firm, McDermott, Will & Emery LLP, but a source representing this matter has disclosed to ABC News that they are not expected to represent him going forward.

No replacement counsel has been identified as of this time.

Cohen is telling his friends he expects to be arrested soon. Almost nothing in the 3.7M items seized has been found to be protected attorney-client info. He's screwed.

I sense the "pardon pen" is being located. #-o

records show three payments made from the Trump campaign to a firm representing Cohen. The “legal consulting” payments were made to McDermott Will and Emery — a law firm where Cohen's attorney Stephen Ryan is a partner — between October 2017 and January 2018.


It was those three payments, sources tell ABC News, that were related to Cohen’s legal defense.

Cohen has said that he did not have a formal role in the Trump campaign, and it is illegal to spend campaign funds for personal use – defined by the FEC as payments for expenses “that would exist irrespective of the candidate’s campaign or responsibilities as a federal officeholder.”

Title: Giuliani shoots down reports that Cohen may flip: ‘He’s not cooperating’

President Trump's attorney, Rudy Giuliani, is throwing cold water on reports that Michael Cohen, Trump's longtime personal lawyer, is preparing to cooperate with investigators in the special counsel's Russia probe.
In an interview with Fox News's Laura Ingraham late Wednesday, the former New York City mayor also dismissed the possibility that Cohen could have incriminating information on Trump.

“He’s not cooperating nor do we care because the president did nothing wrong,” Giuliani said. “I am absolutely certain of that.”
“Michael Cohen, I think, would tell you he’s got nothing incriminating with the president,” he added, saying that he would be "very comfortable" if Cohen began cooperating with prosecutors.
"I empathize with Michael," Giuliani added. "I do not believe he is going to tell a falsehood. I think he's going to tell the truth and we are very comfortable with that," he said.
During the interview, Giuliani suggested that special counsel Robert Mueller's office team filed perjury and attempted witness tampering charges against another former Trump aide, Paul Manafort, because original charges of tax fraud and money laundering against him were "going under."

No one said Cohen is cooperating.....they said with him dropping the Rump/Rump campaign paid lawyer it looks like he may be planning to cooperate. Or it could be the current lawyer is too expensive, or he just doesn't like him, or a long list of other possibilities. Cohen is in a lot of trouble though and with his partner testifying his choices are testify, jail, hope for a pardon.
