As to why Cohen may feel compelled to cooperate with federal prosecutors, only Michael Cohen can say-but Ken White, a defense lawyer who makes a living off battling the government, gave us one idea.

ABC News also reported the Federal Bureau of Investigation raid of Cohen's office and residence was related to a warrant involving his "personal business dealings and secret deals with alleged mistresses, media organizations and the 2016 presidential campaign".

Cohen is reportedly telling associates he expects to be arrested "any day now".

The New York Times' Maggie Haberman went so far as to hint that Trump, while angry about Cohen's legal troubles and the bungling of the Stormy Daniels situation, is actually afraid of Cohen.

Cohen has denied any wrongdoing related to the Russian Federation investigation, and in the case playing out in the Southern District of NY. Mr. Cohen also didn't respond to a request for comment.

What does this matter, you ask?

President Donald Trump's personal attorney, Michael Cohen, has split with the legal team that has shepherded him through a criminal investigation that included a high-profile FBI raid, a source familiar with the change said Wednesday. The Wall Street Journal reported the law firm, which has represented Cohen since June 2017, would part company with him at the end of the week.

The AP reports federal prosecutors in NY have publicly said they are investigating alleged fraud in Cohen's business dealings, but haven't disclosed details.

National security lawyer Bradley P. Moss told Law&Crime earlier Wednesday that the Cohen news is a big deal for Trump. "He handled the hush money payments in the context of the campaign", he said.

"Mr. Cohen, more so than anyone else in the President's inner circle other than his wife and children, knows where all the proverbial bodies are buried".
