I think that Michael Cohen is in a very, very bad spot" MSNBC reporter: "Detained immigrant children "effectively incarcerated" in Texas facility GOP chairwoman: "Anyone who doesn't support Trump "will be making a mistake" MORE'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 Russian Federation probe.

On Wednesday, ABC News and other outlets reported that Cohen was expected to lose legal representation.

Reports indicated that Cohen might have been looking for new lawyers.

A team 15 of lawyers hired by Cohen have been going through documents the FBI seized from his offices, to set aside those they argue should be withheld from federal investigators because of attorney-client privilege.

As to why Cohen may feel compelled to cooperate with federal prosecutors, only Michael Cohen can say-but Ken White, a defense lawyer who makes a living off battling the government, gave us one idea.

Cohen is Trump's former personal attorney and fixer.

McDermott did not immediately respond to the ABAJournal.com request for comment. The Times reported that once the review is complete, Cohen will seek new counsel.

The friend, who spoke on condition of anonymity, also told Reuters that Cohen has complained that he does not feel he has received enough support from Trump in dealing with the situation.

Fox Business also ran a report on this exact issue where Gasparino said, "There's a lot of speculation about whether Mr. Cohen can pay Mr. Ryan's fees".

"Not a good look and a disaster for Mr. Cohen and Mr. Trump", he said. That case focuses on whether Cohen committed bank fraud, wire fraud, or campaign-finance violations related to his work for Trump and his payment to the adult-film actress Stormy Daniels shortly before the 2016 presidential election.

He added that despite earlier reports, he talked to Cohen and doesn't think he will flip.

Donald Trump's former personal lawyer is expected to cooperate with the Mueller investigation.

Nearly no one honestly believes that there isn't plenty of criminality within Trump's business dealings, so if Cohen starts singing like a bird, the president could be in serious trouble.

But there's little question that Trump is very anxious about what Cohen might tell prosecutors.
