A federal judge has given Cohen's legal team a June 15 deadline to review materials for attorney-client privilege.

Attorneys for Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump's former longtime personal attorney, are expected to stop representing him, multiple outlets reported Wednesday.

The criminal probe into Cohen's business dealings stems in part from a referral by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating whether Trump's 2016 campaign colluded with Russian Federation to influence the US presidential election. Replacements for the lawyers have not been named.
