Michael Cohen’s attorney Lanny Davis is walking back a big lie he told on national television this week.
Daily Caller reports:
Lanny Davis, an attorney for Michael Cohen, is backtracking from his stunning claim that President Donald Trump had advance knowledge of Russian hacking efforts.
During interviews on Tuesday and Wednesday, Davis laid out a grave allegation against Trump, saying that Cohen had information that would be of interest to special counsel Robert Mueller, including about Russian hacking of Democrats’ emails.
Davis’s allegations, if accurate, would have had significant ramifications for the Mueller investigation, which is probing whether the Trump campaign colluded with the Kremlin to influence the 2016 election. Trump has denied knowing about hacks of Democrats’ emails before they occurred.
But Davis is now telling The Washington Post that his comments were merely based on “instinct” and not direct knowledge about what Cohen knows.
How long will it take the media to figure out that you shouldn’t believe everything you hear–even if it’s anti-Trump?
