this is certainly a huge development president Trump so-called fix or has been silent for months refusing to give comment or talk about the federal investigation involving that rate of material seized from his properties but his silence ended this weekend in New York City hotel room where he sat down with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos where they talked off camera for about 45 minutes I’ll call when was asked many questions surrounding is loyalty to the president which in the past has seemed Bulletproof people close to him he would take a bullet to protect his longtime former client if it came down to it but his tone seems to have changed and when asked what he will do if prosecutors offer in leniency in return for information on President Trump here is what Panopoulos says Cohen told him one of the big questions I asked him is what will you do if prosecutors come to you and offer you leniency in return for information on President right now he said he wanted to pursue it respect the process get into specifics added this with emphasis my wife my daughter and my son had my first loyalty and always will I put family and Country first asked what he would do if prosecutors forced him to choose between protecting the president and his family if the president and his legal two more to go after him to try to discredit him Stephanopoulos and then he said quote I will not be a punching bag as part of anyone’s defense strategy I am not a villain in any story and won’t allow others to try to depict me in that way, and also spoke apostle charges against him and said that once he understands what charges if any will be filed he will defer to his new legal counsel got petrol for guidance on that Sandra Laura on those breaking development what did Cohen say at have to say about that Laura is a huge part of the door the $130,000 payment he made to keep Daniels quiet he told Stephanopoulos further on advice of my counsel icon was also asked about the FBI in the Robert Muller investigation he said he doesn’t like the term Witch Hunt has been used and doesn’t agree with those who demonize or vilify the FBI sang when he was raided in April the agents were respectful courteous and professional and when they left he says he shipped sounds and he thank them for their service and rest so a lot to get through here with this breaking the silence over the weekMichael Cohen, the longtime personal attorney to President Trump, seems to distance himself from the president in a new interview with ABC News; Laura Ingle reports on what else was said.
