Michael Cohen Hires Former Bill Clinton Lawyer Lanny Davis

08 July 2018

President Donald Trump's personal attorney said he's not anxious about what Michael Cohen might tell federal prosecutors, saying, "As long as he tells the truth, we're ... home free".

The comments follow an interview Cohen had with ABC News last week in which he suggested that his loyalties had shifted. The onetime stalwart Trump footsoldier also hinted he may have information on what the President knew about the 2016 Trump Tower meeting and hush money payment to Stormy Daniels.

"My wife, my daughter and my son have my first loyalty and always will", Cohen, a former longtime personal lawyer to Trump, told Stephanopoulos in the June 30 interview.

Giuliani said he does not know if Trump promised in advance to reimburse Cohen for the $130,000, but said he believes Cohen "knew he'd be reimbursed". "I put family and country first".

And Southgate's personality has rubbed off on his players, who are not the ego-driven prima donnas of the recent past. Meanwhile in Manchester, England fans were pictured jumping on a police van while officers were busy elsewhere.

The New York Times had reported Cohen's hiring of Davis earlier. "Michael Cohen deserves to tell his side of the story - subject, of course, to the advice of counsel".

"Michael Cohen should cooperate with the government", Mr. Giuliani said Sunday on ABC's "This Week".

Davis said he was struck by Cohen's sincerity in the interview, his first since federal agents raided his home, office and hotel room in April as part of an investigation into his business dealings. Trump denied reimbursing Cohen and said Giuliani needed to "get his facts straight".
