Things Are Looking Very Bad for Trump 'Fixer' Michael Cohen - Here's Why
Jun 13 2018 by Desiree Burns
Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump's longtime personal attorney, is parting ways with his legal team as he continues to face a federal criminal investigation, according to a person familiar with the case.
The WSJreports Cohen's attorneys had been reviewing more than 3.7 million documents seized from Cohen, ahead of a Friday deadline set by Judge Kimba Wood of the Southern District of NY. The ABC report has been corroborated by The New York Times and CNN.
Following a 9 April raid on his residences and office, Cohen has been represented by Stephen Ryan and Todd Harrison of the firm McDermott, Will & Emery LLP.
ABC News also reported the Federal Bureau of Investigation raid of Cohen's office and residence was related to a warrant involving his "personal business dealings and secret deals with alleged mistresses, media organizations and the 2016 presidential campaign".
For a decade, Cohen has served as one of Trump's most trusted aides, scouting foreign real estate deals and handling sensitive transactions, including a hush deal made with the pornographic actor Stormy Daniels on the eve of the presidential election. It's also important to note that Cohen cooperating with authorities was deemed "likely".

"It resulted in the unnecessary seizure of protected attorney-client communications between a lawyer and his clients".
The firm's spokesperson did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
Trump has acknowledged that he reimbursed Cohen for the payment, but he has denied that the affair with Daniels took place.
"If anyone can blow up Trump, it's him", an unnamed White House official toldVanity Fair.
Mr. Cohen doesn't yet have a replacement law firm but is searching for a federal criminal lawyer in NY, people familiar with the matter said. The New York Times said an issue with payment of legal bills prompted the change.
