Lawyer backs off claims about information Cohen has

"There have been reports that you privately tried to get the president to back away from [Cohen]", said Fox News host Martha MacCallum.

And now, Buzzfeed reports that Lanny Davis, Cohen's lawyer, has admitted he was one of the anonymous sources for the CNN story, and that he can not corroborate his account of Cohen's story. According to BuzzFeed News, Davis was the confirming source for all of that.

Robert Mueller's special counsel recently secured a plea deal from Donald Trump's former attorney, Michael Cohen and gave immunity to AMI CEO David Pecker, who quickly confirmed the validity of Cohen's claims that Trump paid off women to remain quiet about their affairs just ahead of the 2016 November election.

"I made a mistake", Davis told Buzzfeed", adding, of the Anderson Cooper interview, "I did not mean to be cute" - quite the euphemism for lying.




Davis told The Washington Post that he can not confirm media reports that Cohen is prepared to tell Special Counsel Robert Mueller that Trump had advance knowledge of the 2016 Trump Tower meeting, where Donald Trump Jr. expected to receive damaging information about Clinton from a Russian lawyer.

The Political Insider report said that a former Trump insider and Northern Westchester native Roger Stone, a decades-long run friend and political consultant to the president, believes that Trump Jr.is "in Robert Mueller's crosshairs".

Dershowitz said "it would be great" to have Democrats in power so there could be further investigations. "We were not the source of the story".

Davis told PBS's "NewsHour" on Wednesday: "I believe that Mr. Cohen has direct knowledge that would be of interest to Mr. Mueller that suggests - I'm not sure it proves - that Mr. Trump was aware of Russian government agents hacking illegally, committing computer crimes, to the detriment of the candidate who he was running against". "I regret my error, '" said Molly Line, sitting in on the panel for the day. In other words, the story reports claims that Cohen had said he was willing to make, not the underlying truth of those claims.
