Michael Cohen hints at flipping and says ‘first loyalty’ is to family – not Trump


Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s former personal attorney, said he will put “family and country first” as investigations continue into his work for Trump.


Cohen’s remarks, was  an off-camera interview with ABC’s Good Morning America. Cohen has frequently been aggressive towards reporters working on stories about Trump. He said last September he was “the guy who would take a bullet for the president” and would “never walk away”.

But speaking to George Stephanopoulos in the ABC interview, which was conducted on Saturday at a hotel in New York City, he said: “My wife, my daughter and my son have my first loyalty and always will. I put family and country first.”

In answer to the question of whether he expected Trump to turn on him, Cohen said: “I will not be a punching bag as part of anyone’s defense strategy. I am not a villain of this story, and I will not allow others to try to depict me that way.”
