Cohen spoke out in an interview with ABC News that aired Monday morning, in which he hinted that he would cooperate with investigators, telling George Stephanopoulos that he puts loyalty to “family and country” before Trump.

Trump is clearly worried about the prospect of Cohen flipping. He tweeted back in April that “most people will flip if the government lets them out of trouble, even if it means lying or making up stories. Sorry, I don’t see Michael doing that despite the horrible Witch Hunt and the dishonest media!”

He also called Cohen “a fine person with a wonderful family.”

Fox News anchor Sandra Smith read Trump’s comments on air Monday morning, and turned to Stirewalt for reaction.

“They’re still going to back the truck over him,” Stirewalt said. “Whether he’s a nice person with a fine family or not, the president’s still going to back the truck over him.”

In Cohen’s ABC interview, Stephanopoulos asked what he would do if Trump and his legal team “come after him.”

“I will not be a punching bag as part of anyone’s defense strategy,” Cohen replied. “I am not a villain of this story, and I will not allow others to try to depict me that way.”
