Lanny Davis Admits He Lied To The Media About Major Trump Tower Report


Recommended Posts

Michael Cohen’s attorney Lanny Davis admitted on Thursday that he erroneously confirmed a CNN report about Trump’s knowledge of the 2016 Trump Tower meeting with the Russians.

 

CNN reported on July 27 that Cohen was prepared to tell Special Counsel Robert Mueller that the president had advance knowledge of the Trump Tower meeting. On Wednesday, Davis said that the reporting was “mixed up” and that his client had no information regarding when Trump knew about the meeting.

 

According to the New York Post, however, Davis himself confirmed CNN’s report as an anonymous source when it was first published.

Davis is now apologizing on the record for confirming something he did not know to be true.

“I regret that I wasn’t clear enough to The Post. I should have been more clear. I could not independently confirm the information in the CNN story,” Davis said. “I’m sorry that I left that impression. I wasn’t at the meeting. The only person who could confirm that information is my client, [Michael Cohen].”

 

Cohen has also provided information to Congress that would debunk CNN’s report.

 

The leaders of the Senate Intel committee said that Cohen testified to them that he personally did not know about the Trump Tower meeting before it happened. This contradicts CNN’s reporting that Cohen was in a meeting with Trump when Donald Trump Jr. informed him of the Russians’ offer for dirt on Hillary Clinton.

 

CNN has yet to issue a correction on their July 27 report or to update it with Davis’ new comments.

Last I checked, it wasn't a crime to lie to the press.

 

Or is just not a crime when Trump does it?  :rolleyes:

True, and it wouldn't matter if the mainstream press were actually independent.

 

Because then they'd catch both sides in lies and be a major force for fixing the problem.

 

But as things stand, the mainstream press is basically only investigating the dishonesty of one side.

 

COLLUDING with the DemocRATS ... to fix elections.

 

But hey ... colluding isn't a crime either ... is it?

 

In fact, collusion was never a crime where Trump was concerned either, was it?

 

(Mind you, that's NOT an admission that Trump colluded with Russians.)

 

(I'm just pointing out another dishonesty by your side and the Mueller investigation ... which was premised on collusion being a crime.)

 

(In any case, I believe there is far more evidence of collusion with foreign powers to influence our election by the DemocRATS than by Trump or Republicans.)

 

(It's just not being investigated because not only the MSM is corrupt, so is the FBI and DOJ.)

 

(Just saying ... B))
