Washington (CNN)Donald Trump's personal attorney Michael Cohen has signaled to friends that he is "willing to give" investigators information on the President if that's what they are looking for, and is planning on hiring a new lawyer to handle a possible indictment from federal prosecutors.
"He knows a lot of things about the President and he's not averse to talking in the right situation," one of Cohen's New York friends who is in touch with him told CNN. "If they want information on Trump, he's willing to give it."

He also wants Trump to pay his legal bills.
So much for the guy who "would take a bullet" for Trump. Bullets are one thing. Legal bills and prison are other things, apparently, to the #1 fan of Trump.
I betcha. Knowing how incompetent this administration is. So many kids, so many immigrants. One agency assigning numbers to the children. Different agencies & depts not recording those same numbers. Matching the numbers to the children. I bet that in a lot of cases they have no idea where a particular person's child is.
What did the U S do with the children of illegal immigrants picked up at the border? The adults were taken to court, I guess? Or an ICE processing center? Then what?
I heard that the U S DID pick up children and put them in holding areas, if they were unaccompanied by parents. For their own safety. Beyond that, I don't know. Anyone know?
Heartbreaking...a father and young son hugging each other.
Father Martin is a Priest, who I think was recently in a CNN story recently about Catholic leaders speaking out about the family separation.
This may have been posted before, but I didn't see it.
It's being reported that MSNBC is planning on launching a standalone streaming service this year.
According to a report from Variety, MSNBC is hiring staff to help create the new streaming service. This new service will be made up of original programs created specifically for the new streaming service. While some hosts from MSNBC News will be on the network, dont look for live streams of your favorite MSNBC programs.
I was excited about this until I read that it won't have my favorite MSNBC programs. Here's what the article says about that:
Still, this could be interesting. I'll be watching for it, since I'm a cordcutter.
One bishop from the US-Mexico border region reportedly suggested "canonical penalties" - which could refer to withholding the sacrament of Communion - for Catholics involved in implementing the Trump policies.
The comments came as the US Conference of Catholic Bishops - the organising body of bishops - gathered for a biannual meeting in Fort Lauderdale. The topics of migration and asylum have long been a focus for the US church; more than 50 per cent of US Catholics under the age of 30 are Latinos.
The criticism came after recent moves by the administration to separate children from their parents at the border, and to deny asylum on a routine basis to victims of domestic abuse and gang violence.
Some of the religious leaders are the same evangelicals and Roman Catholics who helped President Trump to build his base and who have otherwise applauded his moves to limit abortion and champion the rights of religious believers.
The Rev. Franklin Graham, a son of the famed evangelist the Rev. Billy Graham and an outspoken defender of President Trump, said in an interview on Tuesday on the Christian Broadcasting Network, I think its disgraceful, its terrible to see families ripped apart and I dont support that one bit.
Supporters of Trump's admin. on immigration seem to be narrowing down. Maybe this is a good sign, that some are beginning to say no, this is immoral, this is disgraceful.
He'll need to pardon Manafort before Manafort panics and flips. I read that it's possible, now, that Manafort will spend the rest of his life in jail, since he's not out on bail, anymore.
But if he pardons him NOW, he can only pardon him for witness tampering. Not for the main issues that will be prosecuted.
So...can Trump pardon him AGAIN, if he's found guilty for money laundering or the myriad other legal issues he has?
Trump doesn't care about people. So his only interest in pardoning Manafort is to prevent him from flipping. But now that he's incarcerated before the main event, this could be tricky.
Unbelievable. I don't know I keep saying "unbelievable," because it's all so believable.
Here it is: (bolding is mine)
PAGE: "[Trump's] not ever going to become president, right? Right?!"
STRZOK: "No. No he won't. We'll stop it."
Those seven words are what Trump and his allies will seize on -- casting them as definitive proof that the "deep state" not only didn't want him to win but was actively working to keep him from the White House.
I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that Peter Strzok has some 'splain' to do to the FBI Director.
The White House has already seized on it.
I worked in a professional office for many years. We knew that when we sent emails to each other related to the matters we were working on, we needed to keep it professional, neutral or pro-client, and nothing we'd be embarrassed about, or our employer would find embarrassing, if the client saw the email. We might SAY things to each other...but in an email about something we were working on? Never. We knew that office emails weren't private, and could be seen by someone at some time.
