Lead Michael Cohen Prosecutor at SDNY Stepping Down

Source: Law & Crime

Another high-profile prosecutor connected to a case involving President Donald Trump‘s former associates is stepping down. Robert S. Khuzami, who led the Southern District of New York’s prosecution of Michael Cohen, is leaving soon, according to The New York Times.

Khuzami, successfully secured a guilty plea from Cohen for a variety of charges, including campaign finance violations for hush payments he arranged to women who claimed to have had affairs with Trump. Cohen said he did this at Trump’s direction to benefit the campaign. Cohen also pleaded guilty to bank and tax fraud allegations.


Khuzami has served as the deputy to U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman for 15 months. He is expected to be replaced by senior counsel Audrey Strauss, according to the Times‘ sources. Strauss would then head up any ongoing investigations related to Cohen, as Berman recused himself from those matters.
