    Is he broke(just last week, the judge gave him until June 15 to get his paperwork in order, and supposedly there were 15 lawyers working round the clock, who don't work for free), did they say, you're a law breaking scumbag, we're outta her, or both? In any event, a "lawyer-less" Cohen translates into a s Singing Cohen, and, guess who is gonna sing about, bitches? But, Dump needn't worried about him singing, 'cause, he's innocent, right?

    To date, Cohen has been represented by Stephen Ryan and Todd Harrison of the Washington and New York firm, McDermott, Will & Emery LLP, but a source representing this matter has disclosed to ABC News that they are not expected to represent him going forward.
    No replacement counsel has been identified as of this time.


    Cohen, who has been under criminal investigation for months, which is separate from the special counsel case, has been rushing to meet U.S. District Judge Kimba Wood’s Friday deadline to complete a privilege review of over 3.7 million documents seized in the April 9 raids of Cohen’s New York properties and law office.
    Cohen, who is under federal investigation now with no legal representation, is likely to cooperate with federal prosecutors in Manhattan, sources said. This development, which is believed to be imminent, will likely hit the White House, family members, staffers and counsels hard.
    Two sources who are familiar with a warrant in the case told ABC News in April that federal agents were hunting for records tied to Cohen’s personal business dealings and secret deals with alleged mistresses, media organizations and the 2016 presidential campaign.
    Cohen’s attorney at the time of the raids released a terse statement shortly after the April raids arguing that the seized documents included “the unnecessary seizure of protected attorney-client communications between a lawyer and his clients.”
    “These government tactics are also wrong because Mr. Cohen has cooperated completely with all government entities,” Stephen Ryan said.
    Two days after the raids, Cohen told ABC News: “I just want my stuff back.”
    President Trump also lashed out in a tweet, writing, “Attorney-client privilege is dead!”
    He told reporters at the White House that the move against his longtime personal attorney, which he likened to a break-in, was a “disgraceful situation.”
    “It’s an attack on our country in a true sense. It’s an attack on all we stand for,” the president said during a meeting with senior military leadership at the White House. “That is really now on a whole new level of unfairness.”
    Cohen then went to federal court in Manhattan arguing that his attorneys should be given a first look at the materials seized in the raids for items potentially covered by attorney-client privilege before federal prosecutors could examine the haul.
    Judge Wood subsequently appointed former federal judge Barbara Jones to act as a “special master” to conduct an impartial review of the materials and to referee any disputes between Cohen and the government.
    Trump and the Trump Organization intervened in the case and were also granted access to review the materials for potentially privileged items.
    Jones reported last week that of the first 300,000 items reviewed, she had determined that just 162 of them were covered by attorney-client privilege. She rejected three items that Cohen, Trump or the Trump organization had designated as privileged.
    Judge Wood has given Cohen’s attorneys until Friday to complete the review of the remaining documents. Any remaining items to be reviewed would be turned over to a team of federal prosecutors unconnected to the case to complete the examination of the documents.

    Michael Cohen dumps lawyers, sends ‘smoke signal’ to Trump

    Lots of people are suddenly familiar with Michael Cohen's thinking.


    Judd Legum Jun 13, 2018, 1:09 pm
    On Wednesday, ABC News broke the story that longtime Trump attorney Michael Cohen, whose home and office were raided in April by the FBI, had dropped his seasoned legal team and currently has no legal representation. ABC News reports that Cohen “is likely to cooperate with federal prosecutors in New York.”
    Other outlets quickly confirmed Cohen’s split from his lawyers, but added some nuance. The Wall Street Journal reported that Cohen “hasn’t yet decided whether he will cooperate with prosecutors in the case.” CNN reports that Cohen “had not yet met with prosecutors to speak about a potential deal, and it’s unclear whether either side is seeking one.” The New York Times, however, says “with Mr. Cohen’s legal team in turmoil, the chances increase that Mr. Cohen could cooperate with prosecutors.”



    The news comes as Cohen is reportedly telling friends that “he expects to be arrested any day now.” (Cohen denied that report to Vanity Fair.)
    So what is going on?
    If Cohen were to begin cooperating with federal prosecutors, it could be disastrous for Trump.(IF DUMP IS INNOCENT, WHY WOULD THAT BE? NO TRUMP SCUM EVER SEEMS TO WANT TO ANSWER THAT QUESTION, LOL)
    Cohen has worked for Trump for many years and was involved in managing his most sensitive tasks, including hush money agreements for women who allegedly had affairs with Trump. He proudly described himself as Trump’s “fixer.” If Cohen cooperates, most everything he knows would have to be shared with prosecutors.

    Cohen was nominally Trump’s lawyer, but according to prosecutors, performed little legal work for him. Of the more than 3 million files seized from Cohen’s home and office in April’s raid, a special master appointed by the court found just a few hundred were protected by attorney-client privilege. (There are exceptions to attorney-client privilege if the materials in question involve discussions in furtherance of a crime.)



    The story released Wednesday is that Cohen has dropped his attorneys and may soon cooperate with prosecutors — but has not cooperated yet. A source told Vanity Fair’s Gabriel Sherman suggested this narrative was planted in the media by Cohen himself, calling it a “smoke signal” to Trump.
    Help from Trump, at this point, would likely take the form of the pardon. Trump has made a point of exercising his pardon power conspicuously in recent weeks, in what some observers interpret as a signal to people like Cohen who are currently considering cooperating with prosecutors.
    Cohen, if he is responsible for the publication of this news, is now signaling to Trump that the case has reached an inflection point. He may also be out of money.



    If Trump were to issue a pardon to Cohen, it carries substantial risks for them both. A preemptive pardon of Cohen by Trump, under normal circumstances, would likely prompt impeachment proceedings since it would represent an effort to cover up Trump’s own potential wrongdoing. Cohen, in turn, could still be vulnerable to prosecution by state authorities. State crimes cannot be pardoned by the president.
    Previously, Trump had expressed confidence that Cohen would not flip.
    This story could very well be Cohen replying: things change.

    Kid Who Mowed White House Lawn To Flip On Trump


    https://politics.theonion.com/kid-wh...ump-1826806871

    WASHINGTON—Saying the decision represented what was best for himself and for the nation, Frank Giaccio, the 11-year-old boy best known for mowing the White House lawn last September, told reporters Wednesday that he has decided to flip on Trump. “After extensive discussion with my legal representatives, I’ve realized that the right move for me is to cooperate with the special counsel and tell them everything I gleaned about the president while mowing the Rose Garden lawn late last year,” said Giaccio, explaining that as he watered a row of tulips close to an open West Wing window, he overheard the commander in chief reveal potentially incriminating information related to his finances, undisclosed interactions with foreign agents, and his intentions while firing former FBI director James Comey. “The stakes surrounding this case are higher than ever, and it’s time for me to cooperate. Despite my choice, I remain steadfast that neither I nor my lawn-mowing company have done anything wrong.” At press time, sources close to the special counsel stressed that Giaccio had no choice but to cooperate after the FBI raided his house in and seized his lawnmower and safety goggles.
