Trump's ex-lawyer Cohen hints he could flip against U.S. president

Trump's ex-lawyer Cohen to break his silence in interview on 'Good Morning America' on Monday

Michael Cohen, a longtime personal lawyer and confidante for President Donald Trump, leaves the United States District Court Southern District of New York on May 30, 2018 in New York City. One such dramatis persona is Michael Cohen, the president's longtime fixer at the Trump Organization whose home, offices, and NY hotel room have recently been paid a visit by the FBI-and had a lifetime of shady business dealings tossed into very public view.

"Prosecutors will want to wait to talk to Cohen until after they have reviewed the documents so that they can verify the truth of Cohen's statements and confront him with facts that he might not volunteer", McQuade said.

Cohen promised it would be featured on this morning's Good Morning America which, this morning, treated viewers to about 10 minutes of Stephanopoulos talking about talking to Cohen, with more photos - this time color ones.

The joint defense agreement that Cohen had shared with Trump, allowing their lawyers to share information with each other, will end once Petrillo is fully on board, ABC News reports.

Trump said in April that "most people will flip" if the government lets them be out of trouble, but he didn't see Cohen doing that.

Drake confirms he has a son on new album Scorpion
Here's an epic double-album, a colossal 25 tracks, an odyssey somehow even lengthier than Drake's previous emo-quests. It's expected to debut at No. 1, and it was already heavily trending on social media ahead of its release.

Trump lashed out at the raid as an "attack on our country in a true sense" and "an attack on all we stand for".

Cohen vehemently disagreed in his conversation with Stephanopoulos, saying "I don't agree with those who demonize or vilify the FBI.I respect the prosecutors. I respect the Federal Bureau of Investigation as an institution, as well as their agents", Cohen said. "One day I will answer", Cohen told Stephanopoulos on Saturday.

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". Some U.S. legal analysts have said the payment could be construed as a campaign finance law violation by Cohen.

He also said he "respects the FBI" and that he will cooperate with the investigation, as well as with separate congressional inquiries into Russian election meddling.

Cohen will therefore soon be charting out his own legal strategy, giving Trump no visibility into what his old fixer is planning for his defense against prosecutors.

'Dark day for German football' after World Cup elimination
After the draw for the 2018 World Cup was announced, no one would have foreseen that South Korea would oust Germany . Mexico fans celebrated in the stands when hearing that South Korea had scored against Germany .

The attorney who once faithfully said he would "take a bullet" for Donald Trump now says his family will come first when it comes to legal matters and potentially flipping on the president.

"When they searched my hotel room and my home, it was obviously upsetting to me and my family", he continued.

He said he did not like the term "witch hunt", the pejorative Trump often uses to describe Mueller's investigation. Nonetheless, the agents were respectful, courteous and professional.

Trump has long disparaged Mueller's investigation of Trump campaign links to Russian Federation and whether he obstructed justice when he fired former FBI director James Comey a year ago at a time when he was leading the Russian Federation probe before Mueller was appointed to take over the investigation. "I thanked them for their service and as they left, we shook hands".

Cohen did not offer praise of Trump at any point in the interview, Stephanopoulos said. He opined that it demonstrated "poor judgment" by those involved.
