NEW YORK — Michael Cohen thinks he might soon swap his pinstripes for jail stripes. 

The longtime attorney to President Donald Trump expects to be put in cuffs any day now, possibly opening up his top client to legal complications, a person familiar with the matter said Tuesday.

Cohen has been telling friends he fears his arrest is imminent, the source told the New York Daily News. Cohen remains under federal investigation for possible bank fraud and campaign finance violations; the FBI raided his Manhattan home, hotel room and office in April.

Cohen, 51, did not immediately return a request for comment.

Federal agents stormed into Cohen’s domiciles on April 9 and seized a cache of records, including communications between him and Trump.

A former White House official said Trump is likely concerned about the prospect of Cohen in cuffs.

“Trump should be super worried about Michael Cohen,” the ex-official told Vanity Fair, which first reported Cohen’s potential arrest. “If anyone can blow up Trump, it’s him.”

Cohen has worked for Trump in various capacities since 2011. Cohen’s aggressive legal tactics and tough-talking demeanor resulted in his being nicknamed Trump’s “bulldog.”

He has been making damning headlines ever since it was revealed in January that he brokered a hush agreement between Trump and porn star Stormy Daniels.

Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, accepted $130,000 from Cohen in exchange for signing the contract, which bars her from speaking publicly about allegedly having sex with Trump in 2006.

Michael Avenatti, who represents Daniels in a lawsuit seeking to void the hush agreement, said news of Cohen’s imminent arrest confirms his predictions.

“It looks like once again I’m about to be proven right,” Avenatti told The News Tuesday afternoon, noting he said last month that Cohen would be indicted within 90 days. “He’s going to be charged with a number of crimes.”
