Lanny Davis: Michael Cohen Has Information About Trump That Would Be "Of Interest" To Special Counsel Mueller


Michael Cohen attorney Lanny Davis, a longtime member of Clinton World, said his client has "knowledge on certain subjects" that should be "of interest" to special counsel Robert Mueller. In an interview with Rachel Maddow on Tuesday, David said Cohen was aware of the infamous Trump Tower meeting, knowledge of a "computer crime of hacking," whether or not Trump knew, and if he also cheered it on.

RACHEL MADDOW, MSNBC: The special counsel's office, special counsel Robert Mueller and any of the prosecutors don't appear anywhere in the court filings today. They weren't discussed in court. That makes them a looming presence in this story and what we know about the future of your client. The future of Michael Cohen. Is there anything to do with the special counsel that was involved in this plea agreement today? Has the special counsel approached Michael Cohen already about whether he would like to speak some of that truth to their inquiry in addition to what he's just faced in SDNY?

LANNY DAVIS, MICHAEL COHEN'S ATTORNEY: So, I can't tell you the answer to that about contacts between Michael and the special counsel. But I can tell you that Mr. Cohen has knowledge on certain subjects that should be of interest to the special counsel, and is more than happy to tell the special counsel all that he knows. Not just about the obvious possibility of a conspiracy to collude and corrupt the American democracy system in the 2016 election, which the Trump Tower meeting was all about, but also knowledge about the computer crime of hacking and whether or not Mr. Trump knew ahead of time about that crime and even cheered it on.
