Rudy Giuliani one of President Donald Trump's lawyers in the Russia investigation says Michael Cohen Trump's personal attorney is not cutting a deal with federal prosecutors

Michael Cohen, who was President Donald Trump's longtime personal lawyer, is likely preparing to cooperate with federal prosecutors once he is dropped by the law firm that has been representing him, ABC News reports.

Cohen's lawyers had been scrambling to meet federal Judge Kimba Wood's Friday deadline to complete a review of over 3.7 million documents seized in the April 9 raids of Cohen's NY home, office and hotel room, the network reported. The lawyers are expected to leave his case going forward, ABC reported, without elaborating.

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. Plus, a certain leader of the free world known as President Donald J. Trump is reportedly pretty anxious that if he says anything about this, Cohen will tell all, whatever that is. Cohen, in a text message to Sherman, told the reporter his "alleged source is wrong", but Sherman stood by the acount.

The unnamed source who spoke to the NYDN characterized Cohen as "very stressed out" about the possibility of an indictment.

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.

Replacements for the lawyers have not been named.
