"I will not be a punching bag as part of anyone's defense strategy", he told Stephanopoulos.
The second option is that Cohen "flips" and cooperates with the government, taking a plea agreement with the United States attorney's office or Mueller, who is investigating Russian election interference and possible Trump campaign participation in it. When Cohen's office was raided in April, Trump stated, "It's an attack on our country, in a true sense". If Cohen's ready to cut a deal on this issue, it could get very unpleasant for Trump, although the failed prosecution of John Edwards for a similar set of circumstances calls into question just how unpleasant it could possibly get. I respect the process. "One day I will answer", he was quoted as saying.

Any other settlements with other women, and details about those affairs, including possible violations of campaign-finance or other laws.
Cohen also denied any personal involvement with Russian attempts to interfere in the U.S. election and said he never colluded with the Russians in any way.
If that happens, Cohen insisted that he will not allow himself to become a "villain" through Trump or his representatives.
Trump has long disparaged Mueller's investigation of Trump campaign links to Russian Federation and whether he obstructed justice when he fired former FBI director James Comey a year ago at a time when he was leading the Russian Federation probe before Mueller was appointed to take over the investigation.
He also said he doesn't like Trump's characterization of the Mueller investigation as a "witch hunt", and he said he condemns Russian Federation for its interference in the 2016 election. Michael Cohen tells @GStephanopoulos, he is no longer willing to "take a bullet" for Trump.
"I don't agree with those who demonize or vilify the Federal Bureau of Investigation". The FBI seized roughly 4 million documents from the lawyer in April raids on his home, office, and hotel room. Nonetheless, the agents were respectful, courteous and professional.
The former Trump lawyer told Mr. Stephanopoulos that he hoped speaking out would help him achieve "resolution". "I thanked them for their service and as they left, we shook hands". "It was simply an example of poor judgment".
Finally, to really twist the knife, he directly called out Trump for denying that Russian Federation interfered in the election: "Simply accepting the denial of Mr. Putin is unsustainable".
