Michael Cohen's lawyer Lanny Davis backpedals on key claims

Michael Cohen Paul Manafort swamp Michael Cohen's lawyer Lanny Davis backpedals on key claims

After suggesting to CNN last Wednesday that 'Cohen was an observer and was a witness to Mr. Trump's awareness of those emails before they were dropped, ' Cohen told the Washington Post, 'there's a possibility that is the case.

In June 2016, Trump Jr. and other members of the campaign met at Trump Tower with a Russian lawyer who was expected to offer damaging information on then-Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. "We were not the source of the story", he told CNN's Anderson Cooper last week.

Contacted by CNN, one of Cohen's attorneys, Lanny Davis, declined to comment.

Sherman's sources also say Trump has continued to bring up potentially pardoning Manafort, despite the fact that such a pardon has been warned against by White House counsel Don McGahn. But if that was the media's concern, they could have begun by looking in house - it turns out that the media have been responsible for a bevy of fake stories targeting the right for decades on end (see Rather, Dan).

Last week, Cohen attorney Lanny Davis told Axios that CNN's bombshell story from July - in which they reported that Michael Cohen was prepared to tell Special Counsel Robert Mueller that Donald Trump knew in advance about the Trump Tower meeting - was wrong and that Cohen knew no such thing.

Personally, and this is just one man's informed opinion, I think CNN just gets off on lying, on hoaxing the public. Why Did Bernstein tell us Davis was not the source when Davis was the source?

In a series of interviews, Davis backtracked two assertions: that Cohen saw Trump being advised beforehand of a notorious Trump Tower meeting, and that Cohen could testify whether Trump was aware of Russian hacking. CNN says it stands by the story.

Buzzfeed also notes that both the Washington Post and the New York Post have since outed Davis as the anonymous source who corroborated their own subsequent stories based on CNN's original report. CNN "stands by" it anyway, defending literal fake news.
