Firm rep­re­sent­ing Cohen leaves the case

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS -

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.
