Michael Cohen looking for new lawyers in FBI probe as key court deadline approaches, reports say

President Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, is looking to find new lawyers as the FBI probe into his business dealings continues, according to multiple reports.

In tweets Wednesday, porn star Stormy Daniels' lawyer, Michael Avenatti, gloated over the news and inquired how much money Cohen's lawyers had "soaked" him for.

After FBI agents raided Cohen's office in April, Ryan and his New York partner, Harrison, went to court to try to keep investigators from seeing some of the confiscated files on the grounds that they were protected by attorney client privilege.

Federal prosecutors in New York have publicly said they are investigating alleged fraud in Cohen's business dealings, but haven't disclosed details.

When agents searched Cohen's home, office and safety deposit box and seized his phones this spring, they sought a wide variety of information, including his involvement in arranging a secret $130,000 payment to Daniels, who said she had a sexual tryst with Trump years ago.
