Firm representing Cohen leaves the case
The law firm representing Michael Cohen is leaving the case, a possible sign that President Trump’s personal attorney may flip and cooperate with federal prosecutors, according to a media report Wednesday.
McDermott Will & Emery, a New York and Washington firm, has been representing Mr. Cohen. But ABC News said the firm will not represent him going forward. A replacement firm has not been named, ABC News said.
The departure comes as attorneys in the case scramble to review more than 3.7 million documents seized in the April 9 raids of Mr. Cohen’s home and office.
Without legal representation, Mr. Cohen likely will cooperate with federal prosecutors in New York, a source told ABC News. But it could also mean a shift in Mr. Cohen’s legal strategy.
