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

Michael Cohen Paul Manafort swamp

President Trump's former campaign adviser Roger Stone pushed back Monday against a yet-to-be-published report, preemptively denying allegations that he alerted then-candidate Trump in advance of WikiLeaks releasing emails stolen from the chairman of Democratic rival Hillary Clinton's campaign.

Lanny Davis (left) said he can not independently confirm what Cohen might tell investigators about when the president learned of Russian efforts to undermine the Clinton campaign.

And then Bernstein's sources-sources-sources with knowledge told Bernstein...

"Davis's latest comments cast doubt on what Cohen may know, including about a June 2016 meeting in New York's Trump Tower attended by Trump's eldest son and a Russian lawyer", the Post wrote on Sunday night.

John McCain: A life in pictures
McCain spent the past year undergoing cancer treatment, but his family said Friday that he would discontinue that treatment. Known for his combustible temper, he accused the 45th president of "naivete", "egotism" and of sympathising with autocrats.

With President Trump's consistent focus on "fake news", it's easy to forget that the term was originally popularized by members of the mainstream media attempting to explain away Hillary Clinton's loss by blaming the dissemination of false stories.

Trump now faces a "two-front war against the Justice Department", led by the Southern District, which can investigate any aspect of Trump's behavior that took place in its jurisdiction.

Davis said he regretted his "error".

When the New York Daily News asked Rudy Giuliani if Trump would hire a new White House Counsel the President's attorney offered a simple, "Don't know", comment. But he had not confessed that he was actually a source until his admission to Buzzfeed. Why Did Bernstein tell us Davis was not the source when Davis was the source?

Giuliani: If Trump were impeached 'the American people would revolt'
Since Trump came to office in early 2017, the USA economic growth has leapt from 2% to a very solid 4% last quarter.. Trump is reacting to the guilty plea entered by his former lawyer, Michael Cohen, to a range of charges.

"So, Michael Cohen does not have information that President Trump knew about the Trump Tower meeting with the Russians beforehand or even after?"

Alan Dershowitz reacted Tuesday on America's Newsroom to Lanny Davis walking back multiple assertions he made regarding Michael Cohen and the Trump-Russia investigation.

Although the CNN reporting was proven to be wrong, they are continuing to support the story and are not offering a redaction.

RETRACTION: That stuff about Bernstein in the break room is a lie ( I do, however, stand by my reporting that Lanny Davis was not my source).
