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

Trump has openly doubted the conclusions of current and past USA intelligence officials, who say Russian Federation actively meddled in the 2016 election campaign.

"Under these circumstances, Michael Cohen would waive his Fifth Amendment rights on all subjects related to either investigation", Epner said. "But I can't comment now on the advice of my counsel", he said.

Cohen admitted paying Daniels $130,000 in exchange for her signing the "hush agreement".

Adult film actress Stormy Daniels at The Joint inside the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino January 20, 2012 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Trump first denied knowledge of any payments then finally admitted to reimbursing Cohen for the said payment.

In response to the interview on ABC, Michael Avenatti, Clifford's lawyer, suggested that Cohen was "playing games".

In the interview with Stephanopoulos, Cohen said that his family and country are the ones who have his loyalty.

"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", he added.

Cohen, who worked for Trump over the past decade, is the focus of an investigation in the Southern District of NY into whether he violated campaign-finance laws or committed bank fraud, wire fraud, illegal lobbying, or other crimes.

On Monday, a special master turned over to the government more than 1.3 million items that were seized by the Federal Bureau of Investigation from Cohen's NY home, office and hotel room in April.

The bulk transfer was reported by court-appointed special master Barbara Jones who has been reviewing the material to determine if any of it should be withheld from authorities as privileged communications between attorney and client.

In Washington, Mueller also has been examining Cohen's role in at least two episodes involving Russian interests.

As Stephanopoulos noted in the interview, that's a shift from previous comments Cohen has made about his allegiances.

U.S. President Donald Trump's personal lawyer Michael Cohen exits his hotel in New York City, U.S., July 2, 2018.

Stephanopoulos said he asked Cohen if he had any regrets about how he has handled any of the matters under investigation.

JOHNSON: You know, Cohen may or may not have some valuable information about Donald Trump. Cohen's current attorney did not immediately respond for comment.

Mr Cohen was Mr Trump's self-described fixer and a key player in the Trump organisation for more than a decade, regularly berating reporters and threatening lawsuits against anyone who posed a challenge to his boss.

Cohen's shift in stand is triggered by Donald Trump's attempts to distance himself from his former lawyer.

"I want to answer".

Cohen vehemently disagreed in his conversation with Stephanopoulos, saying "I don't agree with those who demonize or vilify the Federal Bureau of Investigation..."

"As an American, I repudiate Russia's or any other foreign government's attempt to interfere or meddle in our democratic process, and I would call on all Americans to do the same", he said. In April, investigators raided his home and office.

In April, Trump had tweeted that Michael was a businessman "who I have always liked & respected".

On May 2, the watchdog organization sought "all records of communications" between Rosenstein and the USA attorney's office for the Southern District of NY "about Michael Cohen and/or the executed search warrants of Cohen's office, home, and hotel room", plus "all records of communications" between Mueller and the attorney's office "about Michael Cohen and/or the executed search warrants of Cohen's office, home, and hotel room". He said agents who raided his office and his home acted professionally.
