The president's former attorney claimed he broke the law out of blind loyalty to someone he knew and respected
Attorney Michael Cohen insisted on Friday morning — while attacking his former client — that he isn’t a villain for eventually cooperating with federal investigators.
“I know the truth, many people know the truth,” Cohen told ABC host George Stephanopoulos on “Good Morning America” in a rare interview. “The truth is — I told the truth. I took responsibility for my actions. And instead of him [Trump] taking responsibility for his actions, what does he do? He attacks my family. And after yesterday, again being before the court and taking the responsibility and receiving a sentence of 36 months, the only thing he could do is to tweet about my family.”
Cohen has faced a host of legal troubles, which eventually led to a three-year prison sentence this week.
