Michael Cohen's lawyer admits to being source of CNN story

Trump Tweets Go Silent, Quote-Tweets Himself -

In June he called longtime Trump lawyer Michael Cohen an 'honest, honorable lawyer.' But weeks later, following the release of a secretly taped conversation involving Cohen and Trump discussing payment to a former Playboy model, he called Cohen an 'incredible liar'.

Cohen and Trump had a major falling out after the Federal Bureau of Investigation raid and Cohen started to hint he would be willing to provide damaging information on the president. The top legal spokesmen for each side are ... Quote: "Contacted by CNN, one of Cohen's attorneys, Lanny Davis, declined to comment".

Up until this point, though, Giuliani was the Great Contradictor and Davis was merely a colorful character.

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.

First, in an interview with the Washington Post over the weekend, Davis told reporters he is "not sure" if Cohen has information indicating Trump knew Russian Federation would hack Clinton and the Democrats. If true, the information could be some of the most damning evidence yet of conspiracy between Trump and the Russians.

At least two of them, the New York Post and Washington Post, published stories this week that walked back their original stories. They want to believe Trump knew about this meeting at Trump Tower, so they'll stand by the story even after their main source admits he lied to them. And by the media's own standards, that means CNN is pushing fake news.

Chelsea Manager Maurizio Sarri Gives Update On Future Of Eden Hazard
From playing a 3-4-3 formation under previous manager Antonio Conte , Chelsea are now deploying in a 4-3-3 formation under Sarri . A return for Hazard in the starting XI could be on the cards for Sunday.

Davis, attempting to clean up his comments in interviews last week after Cohen pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations, tax evasion and bank fraud, told the Post he "should have been more clear" that he "could not independently confirm what happened".

Trump and his allies seized on the erosion of those claims.

"No, he does not", Davis said.

Senators Richard Burr, Republican of North Carolina, and Mark Warner, Democrat of Virginia, leaders of the Senate committee, said in recent days that Cohen had sent word to the committee that he had no desire to amend that testimony. Soon Muller would have Cohen under oath before a grand jury and then Trump's collusion with the two Russians at the Trump Tower meeting, Natalia Veselnitskaya and Rinat Akhmetshin, would be fully exposed!

But asked Saturday how confident he was that Trump knew about the hacking before it became public, Davis said: "I am not sure".
