President Trump's lawyer Michael Cohen's name has been swirling around headlines this week.


Cohen has done a lot over the years, including claims that he sold access to the president and payed off adult film star Stormy Daniels hush money to keep quiet about an alleged affair with President Trump.

According to a close friend of Cohen there is one thing he will not do -- betray the president.

The New York Daily News reported that a source close to Cohen said that he would rather go to jail before he oust Trump and loses his loyalty card.

Cohen's friend conceded Cohen might have done some questionable things, but maintained he likely didn't do it knowing he was breaking the law.

"Did he do something stupid? He probably did," the longtime Cohen buddy told The News. "Did he do it knowing it could be illegal? No."

"Someone of his character, he would rather go to jail than present information on Trump," the source said.

It's unknown how the claims made against him will turn out, but if convicted for bank fraud he could face up to 30 years in prison.
