After two months of legal wrangling following an April 9 FBI raid on his home, hotel room and office, sources close to Trump personal attorney Michael Cohen say that he's preparing to cooperate with prosecutors from the Southern District of New York who have been overseeing the criminal probe against him, ABC News reported Wednesday morning.
The possibility of Cohen turning states witness could create problems for the White House, Cohen's family members and lawyers that have been working on the multifaceted investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.
Today's news comes after Vanity Fair reported late Tuesday that Cohen has been telling friends that he expects to be arrested soon.
“Trump should be super worried about Michael Cohen,” a former White House official said.
“If anyone can blow up Trump, it's him.” Cohen is reportedly being investigated for bank fraud connected to a “hush money” payment of $130,000 made to Stormy Daniels, the former adult-film star who alleges she had a brief affair with Trump a decade ago.
