  • How Mueller deputy Andrew Weissmann's offer to an oligarch could boomerang on DOJ

    The ink was still drying on special counsel Robert Mueller’s appointment papers when his chief deputy, the famously aggressive and occasionally controversial prosecutor Andrew Weissmann, made a bold but secret overture in early June 2017. Weissmann quietly reached out to the American lawyers for Ukrainian oligarch Dmitry Firtash with a tempting offer: Give us some dirt on Donald Trump in the Russia case, and Team Mueller might make his 2014 U.S. criminal charges go away. The specifics of the never-before-reported offer were confirmed to me by multiple sources with direct knowledge, as well as in contemporaneous defense memos I read....
  • Jake Tapper: CNN Didn’t Get ‘Anything’ Wrong In Russiagate Reporting

    Despite Tapper and Cuomo’s denials, CNN has been plagued by errors in its reporting on the Russia investigation. CNN issued a massive correction Dec. 7, 2017, to a story that claimed Donald Trump Jr. had been sent an email Sept. 4, 2016, that contained undisclosed information from WikiLeaks. It turned out CNN’s sources provided the wrong date for the email. Trump Jr. actually received the email Sept. 14, 2016, a day after the information contained in the email had been made public. CNN was also forced to correct a June 7, 2017, article (co-authored by Tapper) that claimed James Comey...
  • Judicial Watch Uncovers More Classified Emails in Hillary Clinton’s Unsecure Email System

    (Washington, DC) — Judicial Watch today announced it received 756 pages of newly uncovered emails that were among the materials former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton tried to delete or destroy, several of which were classified and were transmitted over her unsecure, non-“” email system. Hillary Clinton repeatedly stated that the 55,000 pages of documents she turned over to the State Department in December 2014 included all of her work-related emails. In response to a court order in another Judicial Watch case, she declared under penalty of perjury in 2015 that she had “directed that all my emails on
  • Cohen not in trouble for misleading committee, House chairman says

    The Democratic chairman of the House Oversight Committee said Wednesday that he will not attempt to punish Michael Cohen for misleading the committee last month when he claimed he’d never asked President Trump for a pardon. Rep. Elijah Cummings said Cohen, Mr. Trump’s former personal lawyer, has since clarified through his own lawyer that his testimony “could have been clearer.” Cohen now says he was only referring to a specific period of time in his testimony, according to a letter from his lawyer. The Maryland Democrat said that was good enough to get Cohen off the hook. He could have...
  • Did Lanny Davis Confirm Cohen Lied In Testimony About Trump Pardon?

    Hotair ^ | 03/07/2019 | Ed Morrissey
    Sure seems like it to the Wall Street Journal, and it will certainly seem that way to most others too. In public testimony to the House Oversight Committee last week, Michael Cohen declared categorically that “I have never asked for, nor would I accept, a pardon from President Trump.” That came in Cohen’s opening statement (at the 55-second mark): Overnight, however, Cohen attorney Lanny Davis told quite a different story. Cohen had Davis ask about the potential for a pardon after an FBI raid, approaching Rudy Giuliani about the possibility: Michael Cohen, a former lawyer for President Trump, directed...

    The appearance of long-time Trump confidante Lynn Patton at the congressional testimony of former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen created a considerable stir amid Washington DC. However, the context of her appearance takes on even more drama when considered against Patton’s Facebook post from January 18th of this year: Lynne Patton: […] 3) Many of you may already know that I considered Michael Cohen to be one of my very best friends. Countless people can confirm that we were virtually inseparable during my employment at Trump – and that he is, single-handedly – responsible for introducing me to the Trump family...

    President Trump’s former personal attorney Michael Cohen is postponing his closed-door testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee, citing medical reasons due to a recent surgery, his attorney Lanny Davis said Monday. Cohen had been subpoenaed by the committee to testify on Feb. 12 as part of the panel’s ongoing Russian interference investigation. Davis said at the time that he planned to comply but that the parties would need to discuss the details, including his appearance date, given that Cohen had recently undergone major surgery. “The Senate Select Committee on Intelligence has accepted Mr. Cohen’s request for postponement of tomorrow’s hearing...

    Former Trump attorney Michael Cohen will refuse to answer questions about ongoing investigations but is willing to tell anecdotes about working for President Trump when he appears on Capitol Hill, two Republican lawmakers said on Tuesday. Rep. Mark Meadows of North Carolina and Rep Jim Jordan of Ohio said their staff discussed Mr. Cohen’s planned testimony in February with his lawyer and spokesman, Lanny Davis, a longtime Bill and Hillary Clinton loyalist. The two said Mr. Davis was evasive when asked if Mr. Cohen is paying him. They wondered whether the entire plan is a “media stunt initiated, produced and...

    Breitbart ^ | 3 Sep 2018 | Joel B, Pollak
    CNN swept aside journalistic ethics on Sunday by endorsing a blacklisting campaign with a glowing interview of Matt Rivitz, the founder of Sleeping Giants, a failed effort to censor Breitbart News by harassing and intimidating companies whose advertisements may (or may not) have appeared on the website. The interview took place on Reliable Sources, a Sunday morning show that once focused on analyzing the media, but which in recent years has been turned into the editorial mouthpiece of CNN president Jeff Zucker, voiced through host Brian Stelter. Sunday’s program was helmed by substitute anchor John Avlon, in for Stelter...

    Now here’s something terrifying that’s swinging into action in a big way: the Deep State with dictatorial, unlimited prosecutorial powers. The Deep State is the permanent government of high powered bureaucrats. The most dangerous of these are federal and state prosecutors who can turn a man’s life upside down (woman’s, too) and make life not worth living. A prosecutor has powers that can and do send the innocent to the gas chamber, to prison for life, and frighten even the roughest and toughest of the tough. If they have a political axe to grind, they do it without a second...

    Even liberal Politico finds untenable CNN's refusal to correct their July 26 "scoop" fed to them by Michael Cohen's lawyer Lanny Davis that President Donald Trump knew in advance about the Trump Tower meeting that included his son and a Russian lawyer, which was subsequently denied by Davis' August 22 admission that he did not know if this was true. Politico writer Jason Schwartz also wondered if Davis can continue to appear on network news shows due his part in knowingly spreading what CNN stubbornly refuses to correct despite the fact that they initiated this fraud on August 29 in "Lanny Davis burns reporters.

  • Why Do Ex-Clinton Attack Dogs Davis and Stephanopoulos Get a Pass?

    Lanny Davis represents Michael Cohen, the lawyer who secretly taped his then-client, now-President Donald Trump. If you're keeping score, Davis is the same defense lawyer who represented President Bill Clinton during the investigation by special prosecutor Kenneth Starr. To defend Clinton, Davis employed what at the time seemed audacious: a grab-him-by-the-throat-and-rip-his-head-off strategy to vilify Starr. Starr's poll numbers dropped. Davis later admitted, "Whenever I went off the facts and into attacks on Starr, I felt very uncomfortable." To defend his current client, Davis went on television and said that Cohen has the goods on Trump and can prove Trump directed...

    NY Post ^ | 8/29/2018 | Editorial Board
    Last Thursday, we asked how long it would take before Lanny Davis again changed his story about what his client, Michael Cohen, knows about President Trump. It turned out to be four days. Meanwhile, CNN is standing by a story that relied in part on claims that Davis now says he never should’ve made. It all started with last month’s bombshell CNN report that Cohen, Trump’s former personal attorney, was claiming his then-boss knew in advance of the 2016 Trump Tower meeting between campaign officials and a Russian operative. The CNN story said outright that Davis had declined comment, implying...

    Washington Examiner ^ | Aug. 28, 2018
    Some donors to a "truth fund" promoted by attorney Lanny Davis believe he should issue refunds after he admitted lying about what his client Michael Cohen knows about President Trump. Davis started the "Michael Cohen Truth Fund" last week, and netted about $165,000 since the former Trump "fixer" pleaded guilty to tax and bank fraud, and to campaign finance crimes he said were at Trump's direction. Davis promoted the fundraiser with interviews saying Cohen would be an open book for special counsel Robert Mueller, before saying he gave false information to news outlets about what Cohen knows.

    BuzzFeed ^ | August 27, 2018 | Steven Perlberg
    Attorney Lanny Davis says he was an anonymous source in a July CNN story that reported his client, Michael Cohen, had privately claimed that President Trump had advance knowledge of the infamous Trump Tower meeting between his son and Russians — contradicting Davis's own words on CNN's air last week. In the story, Cohen was reported to claim he had personally witnessed Donald Trump Jr. informing then-candidate Trump about the June 2016 meeting. Such a claim from Cohen would directly contradict Trump’s statements about his knowledge of the meeting, where Russians were set to offer dirt on Hillary Clinton. CNN’s...

    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...
