After FBI agents raided Cohen's office in April, Ryan and his NY partner, Todd 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.

Attorneys who have been representing President Donald Trump's lawyer Michael Cohen during a federal criminal investigation will be leaving the case, according to a new report from ABC News. A federal judge has set a June 15 deadline to determine which records from that raid fall under attorney-client privilege.

After the raids, Mr. Trump blasted the Cohen investigation.

Without legal representation, it is likely that Mr. Cohen will cooperate with federal prosecutors in NY, a source told ABC News. (Reached for comment, Cohen wrote in a text message, "Your alleged source is wrong!") The specter of Cohen flipping has Trump advisers on edge.

The U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of NY is investigating Cohen for various possible crimes, including potential bank fraud and campaign finance violations. Those papers are expected to include Cohen's personal financial dealings, including a $130,000 payment made to porn star Stormy Daniels on Trump's behalf before the 2016 election.

ABC News and the Wall Street Journal first reported the expected legal change.

While Cohen has not been charged with a crime, he is the subject of an investigation by federal prosecutors of alleged wire fraud and other crimes.

Trump has acknowledged that he reimbursed Cohen for the payment, but he has denied that the affair with Daniels took place.
