The departure comes as attorneys in the case scramble to review more than 3.7 million documents seized in the April 9 raids of Mr. Cohen's home and office.

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.

McDermott Will & Emery, a NY and Washington firm, has been representing Mr. Cohen. Plus, a certain leader of the free world known as President Donald J. Trump is reportedly pretty anxious that if he says anything about this, Cohen will tell all, whatever that is.

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

Unconfirmed reports also said that Cohen is likely to become a witness for the prosecution in a case against President Donald Trump.

The source said Cohen had not yet met with prosecutors to speak about a potential deal, and it's unclear whether either side is seeking one.

Lawyers for Mr. Cohen didn't respond to requests for comment.

A person familiar with the matter told The Associated Press Cohen's current legal team plans to stop handling the case. "There's also speculation that maybe Mr. Cohen needs a different type of lawyer if - lots of talk right now about Mr. Cohen cooperating with the feds in exchange for leniency if he faces a possible indictment over God knows what".

A special master determined last week that just 162 of the 300,000 items she reviewed were protected by attorney-client privilege.

Trump has acknowledged that he reimbursed Cohen for the payment, but he has denied that the affair with Daniels took place. "It's an attack on all we stand for", President Trump said during a meeting with senior military leadership at the White House in April.
