Fox News host Harris Faulkner argued on Monday that President Donald Trump’s former personal lawyer Michael Cohen is no longer “credible” after he suggested that he would cooperate with investigators.
In an interview with ABC News, Cohen seemed to back off his earlier claim that he is willing to “take a bullet” for the president.
“My wife, my daughter and my son have my first loyalty and always will,” Cohen told the network. “I put family and country first.”
During a segment about Cohen on the Fox News program Outnumbered, co-host Abby Huntsman concluded that Cohen “is willing to turn [on Trump] if he has to.”
“Who knows how this plays out,” Huntsman remarked. “But I will say, how he answers the questions, if you read it carefully, everything he said actually goes against the way the president has spoken about the FBI and about this Russian meddling.”
But Faulkner argued that Cohen could no longer be seen as “credible” if he becomes a witness for the prosecution.
“Where we are right now is if you know something that is so important, and yet, he is willing to talk to the president but seemingly going against him, what does that say about this person as a witness?” she opined. “It becomes difficult to see him credible at this point. I don’t know what he knows, but based on the way he is acting.”

Billionaire Trump-loving governor took $125,000 in bailouts meant for struggling farmers: report
On Thursday, the Associated Press reported that Gov. Jim Justice (R-WV) received $125,000 in emergency stabilization payments for his farms, as part of the bailout program authorized by President Donald Trump to help farmers avoid losses due to the trade war with China.
Justice, a Trump-loving business magnate who briefly switched to the Democratic Party to run for governor of West Virginia and switched back to the GOP after the election, hardly fits the profile of a struggling farmer. He is worth $1.5 billion, and owns over 50 businesses, including a network of coal mines and the Greenbriar luxury resort, a popular gathering place for Republican officials.
Here’s why Sondland’s testimony is devastating to Trump — whether he wants it to be or not
Veteran Newsweek reporter Kurt Eichenwald outlined in a thread that EU Ambassador Gordon Sondland delivered testimony to the House that was devastating for President Donald Trump whether Sondland wanted it to be or not.
"While wrapped in diplomatic-speak and hemming-and-hawing, the statement of Gordon Sondland, U.S. ambassador to European Union, is devastating to Trump and Giuliani," Eichenwald said. "Given the surrounding evidence, either Giuliani has to say he lied to Sondland, or Trump has to be impeached it is important to dig through it, because, while quite clear on most dates, it takes jumping a bit around in the statement to figure out the date of the key event."
Trump’s EU ambassador is using the ‘Don Jr. defense’ of being too dumb to break the law: national security expert
Gordon Sondland, the man whom President Donald Trump appointed to be his ambassador to the European Union, told congressional investigators on Thursday that he didn't understand that President Donald Trump might be holding up establishing direct contact with Ukraine's government unless the government agreed to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden.
However, given that the president did ask him to run all Ukraine policy through attorney Rudy Giuliani, and given that Giuliani was already publicly boasting about trying to get Ukraine to probe Biden, Sondland's testimony raises the question of what he actually believed the president's intentions were in withholding aid to the country this past summer.
