WASHINGTON, July 2 (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump’s longtime personal lawyer Michael Cohen, in a television interview aired on Monday, declared his loyalty to his family and the United States and said he would fight back if the president or his legal team tried to discredit him.

Cohen’s comments to ABC News signaled that he may abandon Trump and cooperate with prosecutors investigating his business dealings.

“I will not be a punching bag as part of anyone’s defense strategy,” Cohen said in the interview, which was taped during the weekend. “I am not a villain of this story and I will not allow others to try to depict me that way.”
