President Trump’s former personal attorney is expected to strike a deal with federal prosecutors and plead guilty as early as Tuesday afternoon, Fox News has learned.

Inside sources say Michael Cohen’s decision “moved swiftly” as investigators probed possible charges of campaign finance abuse, bank fraud, and other violations.

According to the New York Times, the deal “does not involve a cooperation agreement with prosecutors.”

“Cohen is scheduled to appear at a New York federal court hearing at 4 p.m. ET. The Associated Press reports that he will plead guilty to charges including campaign finance violations, bank fraud and tax evasion,” writes Fox.

“Cohen’s offices were raided in April by federal investigators looking into his financial dealings,” adds the site.
