Michael Cohen has "crucial" information on Trump and Ukraine: attorney
Michael Cohen's attorney Lanny Davis says he has important information concerning President Donald Trump and the topic of Ukraine.
“I have written the three Chairs in the last week,” said Davis on The Rick Ungar Show, “Chairman Elijah Cummings of House Oversight, Chairman Nadler of course, House Judiciary, and Chairman Schiff who we’ve seen on television today, House Intelligence. All three of those gentlemen he cooperated with before he went to prison and he’s ready to do so again.”
Davis says the information is on the same level as that of John Dean, the guy who helped bring down former President Richard Nixon.
“[Cohen] should be a key witness the way John Dean was to translate this criminal behavior,” says Davis, referring to Nixon’s White House Counsel during the Watergate scandal. “Michael now becomes a crucial witness as this process unfolds.”
We listened to Davis' comments on the Rick Ungar show and all we can think about is, why now? Cohen is currently in prison serving time and we should technically have all the information already from him. That doesn't appear to be the case.
Here's what we think is going on: Cohen knows a lot about Trump and he's selectively making that information available as it benefits him personally. He could be waiting for a book deal. This in and of itself isn't necessarily the worst thing in the world, since we couldn't expect him to just give it all up for free, but it does question his intentions. It's still extremely plausible Cohen holds a world of inside dirt on the man.
Davis said that when he visited Cohen, they discussed the "Trump code" which is inside info on how Trump avoids being detected when discussing potentially criminal behavior.Listen to "Rick Ungar Show Highlight: Lanny Davis Says Michael Cohen Is Ready To Testify About Trump's Ukraine Call" on Spreaker.
