Michael Cohen is reportedly losing his legal team and plans to flip

President Trump's longtime personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, is expected to "flip" and begin cooperating with federal prosecutors as the law firm that is representing him is not expected to do so going forward, ABC News reports, based on conversations with people familiar with the internal decisions. "Cohen, now with no legal representation, is likely to cooperate with federal prosecutors in New York," ABC News writes, calling the development "imminent."

Federal prosecutors seized millions of Cohen's documents in an April raid of his home and office, prompting outrage from Trump. "The New York Times and a third rate reporter named Maggie Haberman, known as a Crooked H flunkie who I don't speak to and have nothing to do with, are going out of their way to destroy Michael Cohen and his relationship with me in the hope that he will 'flip,'" Trump tweeted in the aftermath.

Cohen has previously claimed he would "take a bullet" for Trump.
