Q: What does ""see this through and minimize his damages."(5th paragraph) mean?

Cohen's sentencing hearing is not scheduled until December. As he waits for that day, friends say Cohen wants to go about his daily routine as much as possible, including by visiting his usual haunts in Manhattan.

Last Thursday, two days after his indictment, Cohen was spotted by reporters visiting the Four Seasons Hotel in midtown. And as he exited his apartment on Friday to a scrum of reporters and photographers waiting outside, one photographer asked him: "Are you a hero? Do you think you are a hero now?"

"I'll leave that up to you," Cohen responded, before taking a selfie with a passerby.

"He's not going into hiding. He's not avoiding anything. It's business as usual. ... In New York, everything's in the public eye," the first Cohen friend said. "He wants to believe he's past this and turning a corner."

The second Cohen friend said he was still adjusting to his "bizarre" new life in the spotlight. "He's already been living a bizarre life with reporters downstairs at his apartment every day and people following him in the streets," they said. His primary focus, they added, is to "see this through and minimize his damages."

Part of turning the corner has meant shedding some of the titles that Cohen had worn proudly until recently -- including "Trump's fixer" and "Trump's personal attorney" -- nicknames from a past life in which Cohen famously claimed he would gladly take a bullet for Trump.

"You know who Michael took a bullet for? His family," the first friend said.
A: "See it through" means to finish something to the very end, even if it's hard. Eg My degree will take me three years, but I'm determined to see it through.
"To minimise damages" in this case means to avoid more negative media attention.
