Cohen signals openness to cooperating with federal investigators

  Cohen signals openness to cooperating with federal investigators President Donald Trump's personal attorney has indicated to family and friends he is willing to cooperate with federal investigators to alleviate pressure, according to a source familiar with the matter. Cohen has expressed anger with the treatment he has gotten from the President, who has minimized his relationship with Cohen, and comments from the President's lawyer Rudy Giuliani, the source said. The treatment has left him feeling isolated and more open to cooperating, the source said. Asked by reporters Friday if he was worried about Cohen cooperating, Trump said, "I did nothing wrong, nothing wrong.

Sen. Ben Cardin (D-Md.) on Monday said that it's "difficult to understand" President Trump's treatment of America's allies.

"The manner in which he has treated our closest allies is really difficult to understand," Cardin said on CNN's "New Day."

"These are democratic countries that share our values and yet the president seems to want to go alone when it comes to working with our closest allies."

The remarks come after Trump over the weekend said he would not sign a communique with the members of the Group of Seven (G-7). The president cited alleged "false statements" made by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

  President Trump asks NFL players to recommend people for pardons President Trump has railed against NFL players who took a knee during the playing of the national anthem as unpatriotic over the last two years while ignoring the stated reasons for the protests but that changed a bit on Friday. Those reasons center on inequality in the treatment of minorities by law enforcement in the United States and the President said during a press gathering ahead of his trip to the G-7 meeting that players have “seen a lot of abuse, they’ve seen a lot of unfairness” during their lives. He also invited players to make known people they think have been treated unfairly and promised to look into those cases.

"Based on Justin's false statements at his news conference, and the fact that Canada is charging massive Tariffs to our U.S. farmers, workers and companies, I have instructed our U.S. Reps not to endorse the Communique as we look at Tariffs on automobiles flooding the U.S. Market!" the president tweeted Saturday.

Prior to Trump's tweet, Trudeau had said all G-7 members signed the joint statement following the summit in Canada.

The summit took place after the Trump administration said it would impose steel and aluminum tariffs on Mexico, Canada and the European Union after previously providing allies with brief exemptions.

On Sunday, Trump doubled down on his criticisms of Canada and the European Union, tweeting "Fair Trade is now to be called Fool Trade if it is not Reciprocal."

Cardin, who sits on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said Trump is the "outsider" in the G-7, a coalition that includes the United States, France, Japan, Italy, Canada, Germany and the United Kingdom.

"Diplomacy means bringing people together," Cardin told CNN.

"But we start from strength and that is working with our closest allies. We don't pull them apart. And President Trump, throughout his presidency, he started with criticizing our closest allies when he became president," he added.
