Skip to comments.Michael Cohen's lawyer has done real damage to the case against Trump

One of the most bizarre aspects of the investigations engulfing the Trump administration is the lawyers involved. Here we have a presidency on the line, and this is Trump's team? The top legal spokesmen for each side are . . . Rudy Giuliani and Lanny Davis!?
Up until this point, though, Giuliani was the Great Contradictor and Davis was merely a colorful character. Now that has changed in a big way.
In a new interview with The Washington Post's Tom Hamburger and Rosalind S. Helderman, Davis is backing off two massive claims he made in recent weeks, including that former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen has told people he witnessed President Donald Trump being informed of Donald Trump Jr.'s 2016 Trump Tower meeting with a Russian lawyer before it happened.
"I should have been more clear - including with you - that I could not independently confirm what happened," Davis said, adding: "I regret my error."

The explanation that makes the most sense is that Lanny Davis thought he was telling the truth ... which can only mean his own client (Cohen) fabricated a story to him.
Whoa! Poetic justice
How the heck did Hillary’s favorite lawyer end up representing Cohen? And he pleads guilty to two things that aren’t even a crime. I bet ole Lanny is colluding with Mueller.
A classic George quote.
Could be....or maybe Cohen had second thoughts about squealing. None of us give a crap about DjT's history unless it was traitorous , but Cohen is probably privy to some unsavory behavior. He's been pretty loyal to DjT and perhaps expected signals from DjT that he was safe.
The assignment to SDNY has removed the pardon option, so Cohen and family were probably scared to death. ...and that's the way it seems from 40,000 feet.
Yup, “Michael Cohen’s lawyer has done real damage to the case against Trump”........
.......and, the American People are waking up to the obvious reality that despite all the Operation Mockingbird, ver2018 DEEPSTATE/BigBrother lies, there never was a case against Trump
Did Cohen set up his own lawyer?
“I bet ole Lanny is colluding with Mueller.”
and the U.S attorney’s office for the SDNY. This is a coup.
Not true at all. SDNY is a federal district, therefore the pardon option is absolutely not removed.
The assignment to SDNY changes nothing about a potential crime. The Southern District of New York is a FEDERAL court.
Any time Lanny or any of the other Clintonistas are caught in a lie they claim, “errors were made”. The MSM lap it up and go with the mistake meme. Just look at the different treatment of anyone on the right. The right is always slammed as liars by the Dimocrat media and are NEVER EVER given the benefit of any doubt, while they’ll make any excuse to exonerate the left. It’s quite sickening and it’s the reason most people have tuned them out.
Ha, send in the clowns. Nevermind, they’re already here.
Correction: assigned to the Manhattan DA to circumvent any pardons, not SDNY.
who’s he supposed to ‘independently confirm’ with? he has ONE client - Cohen!
> Could be....or maybe Cohen had second thoughts about squealing
Or maybe Cohen doesn’t have anything terribly damaging to reveal at all and was pressured to make false statements as an alternative to spending the next 43,291 years in jail from political prosecution.
Why has Lanny helped Trump like this?
This is really weird.
Cohen (played by Frank Pantangeli): "Oh, Donald Trump, No. I never heard of it. I never heard of nothing like that. I was in the real estate business with his him a long time ago. That's all.
The FBI guys promised me a deal. So I made up a lot of stuff about Donald Trump and his kids. Because then, that's what they wanted. But it was all lies. Everything. They said Donald Trump did this, Donald Trump did that. So I said, "Yeah, sure."
