Mr. Cohen doesn't yet have a replacement law firm but is searching for a federal criminal lawyer in NY, people familiar with the matter said.

A source told the New York Daily News that Cohen is "very stressed out" about a potential indictment, and that "none of it is good".

A federal judge ruled on Friday that Cohen's legal team must publicly file any challenge they make against a special master's decision on evidence seized from Cohen during the raid.

Following a 9 April raid on his residences and office, Cohen has been represented by Stephen Ryan and Todd Harrison of the firm McDermott, Will & Emery LLP. According to a source close to Cohen, Cohen has told friends that he expects to be arrested any day now. 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.

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

The investigation into Cohen is separate from special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into possible collusion between Russian Federation and the 2016 Trump campaign.

"Trump has been fuming about Cohen in private, blaming him for the messy Stormy Daniels situation", Haberman said.

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

TheNew York Times on Wednesday confirmed Cohen is "parting from the lawyers who are representing him", but said Cohen "has not yet been contacted by the prosecutors who are conducting the inquiry".
