His remarks fanned speculation about whether Cohen has any incriminating material on Trump and whether he will "flip" on his former boss, with remarks sharply at odds with a past declaration that he would "take a bullet for the president". "My wife, my son and my daughter have my first loyalty and always will", he confirmed.
