Michael Cohen reportedly separating with his lawyers in federal case

Michael Cohen President Donald Trump's personal attorney walks along a sidewalk in New York

His original attorneys, including a Washington-based partner and a New York-based partner from the large firm McDermott Will & Emery, have not yet told the judge overseeing his case in NY, where Cohen is challenging prosecutors' ability to see all the documents they seized.

Maggie Haberman, the well-connected reporter for the New York Times, says that Trump fixer Michael Cohen isn't trying to send "signals" to President Donald Trump that he needs help with his legal woes in the form of a pardon.

The seizure of those documents led Trump to declare "Attorney-Client privilege is dead!"

Any cooperation by Cohen with prosecutors would represent a significant blow to Trump, whose campaign is under investigation for alleged collusion with Russian Federation and who regularly expresses acute frustration with investigators.

Cohen has found a new lawyer, but the name of Cohen's new lawyer was not yet known.

It's unclear if who will represent Cohen moving forward.

Without legal representation, it is likely that Mr. Cohen will cooperate with federal prosecutors in NY, a source told ABC News.

The unnamed source who spoke to the NYDN characterized Cohen as "very stressed out" about the possibility of an indictment.
