President Donald Trump 's former longtime lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen had been letting family and friends know he is willing to cooperate with federal investigators in New York probing him, CNN reported Friday, citing a source.

Cohen is angry with Trump and the president's current lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, the source told CNN.

Cohen, who has worked closely with Trump for decades, has not yet reached out to prosecutors to strike a deal, according to CNN's source.

He is currently seeking new attorneys, possibly to negotiate a plea deal with the government, multiple outlets reported this week.

Cohen's current lawyer did not immediately respond to a request for comment from CNBC.

In a free-wheeling interview Friday on the White House's north lawn, the president said he's not worried about the prospects that Cohen will cooperate.

"I'm not worried because I did nothing wrong, nothing wrong," Trump said.

In response to a question about whether he and Cohen remained friends, the president said he had not spoken to Cohen in "a long time."

"Michael Cohen, I think, would tell you he's got nothing incriminating with the president," Giuliani said Wednesday on Fox News Channel's "The Ingraham Angle."

In April, Cohen's hotel room and offices were raided by FBI agents after prosecutors in New York City were given information about him by special counsel Robert Mueller.
