Michael Cohen: I’ll put my family before Trump

Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s longtime personal attorney who has found himself at the center of multiple legal issues in recent months, told ABC News he will “put family and country,” ahead of any loyalty to the president.

“My wife, my daughter and my son have my first loyalty and always will,” Cohen told “Good Morning America” host George Stephanopoulos in an interview that broadcast on Monday. “I put family and country first.”

Pressed by Stephanopoulos as to what he would do if prosecutors were to put him the position of choosing between defending the president or protecting his family, Cohen said his family is “my first priority.”
