In a stunning Monday morning interview with Good Morning America, Donald Trump's longtime personal attorney Michael Cohen said he puts "family and country" first — a far cry from a previous claim by the president's fixer that he'd take a bullet for him.

National security lawyer Bradley P. Moss, meanwhile, noted the most important aspects of the Cohen interview, including that he will no longer be sharing documents with the president's legal team.
"Tick tock," the lawyer wrote.
