Trump's former personal lawyer says he'll put 'family first'

The comments to ABC were Cohen's his first significant remarks to a major media outlet since federal prosecutors in NY raided his home, office and hotel room in April. He also said that his wife, children and the country have his first loyalty- not Donald Trump.
"Further, once the Trump Administration submits its designations, any remaining items that are not designated privileged, partially privileged or highly personal will be promptly released to the Government", the filing continues. Cohen had said in the past he acted on his own when making the payment, but on Saturday he refused further comment on the advice of his counsel.
The second option is that Cohen "flips" and cooperates with the government, taking a plea agreement with the U.S. attorney's office or Mueller, who is investigating Russian election interference and possible Trump campaign participation in it.
Since the search warrants were executed in April, lawyers for Cohen, Trump and the Trump Organization have been engaged in a laborious process of reviewing more than 4 million items seized in the raids.
Asked what he will do if Trump and allies try to discredit him, Cohen replied, "I will not be a punching bag as part of anyone's defense strategy". Prosecutors in NY are investigating Cohen for potential violations of campaign finance and banking laws.
Robert Mintz, a former federal prosecutor now in private practice, said that Cohen "has sent every signal he possibly can to prosecutors that he will put his own interests first and will jump at any deal that may save him from going to jail".
Between the beginning of the case and now, Cohen's aforementioned attorneys ceased representing him and Cohen's defense has also taken a different shape. He said his loyalty is not to President Trump.

Australian airlines had cancelled flights scheduled for Thursday evening while the airport was still operating. Ash is unsafe for planes because it makes runways slippery and can be sucked into their engines.
It was Cohen's first comments to the media since his properties were raided by the Federal Bureau of Investigation on April 1.
The files prosecutors now have access to are part of a cache of 3.7 million documents seized by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in April raids of Cohen's office, home and hotel room. Nonetheless, the agents were respectful, courteous and professional.
"I am not a villain of this story, and I will not allow others to try to depict me that way", he told ABC News.
When asked about the $130,000 payment to Stormy Daniels, Cohen's reply was, "I want to answer".
Toobin added that if Cohen cooperates with authorities, that could affect the Russian Federation investigation as well, which is separate from the federal probe into his business dealings. "I thanked them for their service and as they left, we shook hands".
Mr Cohen and his lawyer, Guy Petrillo, did not immediately respond to Reuters' request for comment. The payment was flagged by Cohen's bank in a suspicious activity report at the time.
Trump's former attorney also denied any personal involvement with Russian Federation, including denying that he went to Prague, a claim that was made in the anti-Trump dossier compiled by former British agent Christopher Steele. In fact, he's stopped answering the question altogether, although he tells Stephanopoulos that "I want to answer". Cohen has been under criminal investigation for months because of his business dealings, the Justice Department has said.
