Michael Cohen under pressure to cooperate with prosecutors

Share

A federal judge has given Cohen's legal team a June 15 deadline to review materials for attorney-client privilege.

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.

A retired judge is reviewing more than 3.7 million items seized in the Federal Bureau of Investigation search to determine whether they should be held back from investigators because they are privileged attorney-client communications or are personal.

The highest-profile of those leaving his post was Bishop Juan Barros of Osorno, 61, who has been in the vortex of the abuse saga. It was not immediately clear if Monday's development meant the pope would reject the resignations of the other 31 bishops.

Any cooperation by Cohen with prosecutors would represent a significant blow to Trump, whose campaign is under investigation for alleged collusion with Russian Federation and who regularly expresses acute frustration with investigators. Replacements for the lawyers have not been named.

But as the investigation widens, and with Cohen's legal team in turmoil, the chances increase that Cohen could cooperate with prosecutors.

It's unclear if who will represent Cohen moving forward.
