President Trump’s former attorney, Michael Cohen, recently conducted an interview with ABC News that was published early Monday morning which has indicated he might soon be flipping on his former client, the man he once claimed he would “take a bullet” for.
During the interview with George Stephanopoulos, Cohen stated that it was his family and his country that deserved his utmost loyalty, not the president. Clearly, this indicates that something is in the works and it might not be very good news for Trump.
“My wife, my daughter and my son have my first loyalty and always will. I put family and country first,” Cohen told Stephanopoulos in a 45-minute sit-down on Saturday.
Stephanopoulos, a former senior advisor to President Bill Clinton, underscores in his write-up of the interview that Cohen never once praised the president in the conversation — and, in fact, indirectly rebuked Trump in his defense of the federal investigations.
When Stephanopoulos floated the hypothetical scenario of Trump’s legal team trying to discredit Cohen and the work he did for Trump, Cohen sat up straight and spoke with more intensity. “I will not be a punching bag as part of anyone’s defense strategy,” he said with emphasis. “I am not a villain of this story, and I will not allow others to try to depict me that way.”
Cohen also made clear that he respects the prosecutors and the process, another strong signal that he plans to work with Mueller and the Manhattan office. “I respect the prosecutors. I respect the process,” said Cohen. “I would not do or say anything that might be perceived as interfering with their professional review of the evidence and the facts.”
The president’s former lawyer went on to say that he does not agree with demonizing the FBI, stating he respects the institution and their agents.
There’s been a lot of talk that Cohen knows things that could damage the president and his administration, but then again, people have been claiming that same thing since Trump took office and nothing much has come from it. It’s likely hogwash, but it’s hard to tell for certain these days.
Regardless, Trump should be prepared for some of his dirty laundry to be aired out on the national stage, because it certainly seems like Cohen is gunning for him.
