FACTS FIRST: Lanny Davis outs himself as CNN's anonymous source on Trump Tower meeting

We mentioned earlier today that BuzzFeed News is going to add a donate button to its articles, and we’re now wondering if that button might be worth a click or two. On Monday night, BuzzFeed reported that Michael Cohen’s lawyer, Lanny Davis, admitted he was CNN’s source for its Trump Tower meeting story.

Oh, and he lied about it on air the week before.

Steven Perlberg writes:

Attorney Lanny Davis says he was an anonymous source in a July CNN story that reported his client, Michael Cohen, had privately claimed that President Trump had advance knowledge of the infamous Trump Tower meeting between his son and Russians — contradicting Davis’s own words on CNN’s air last week.

In the story, Cohen was reported to claim he had personally witnessed Donald Trump Jr. informing then-candidate Trump about the June 2016 meeting. Such a claim from Cohen would directly contradict Trump’s statements about his knowledge of the meeting, where Russians were set to offer dirt on Hillary Clinton.

Last week, Davis told Anderson Cooper, “I think the reporting of the story got mixed up in the course of a criminal investigation. We were not the source of the story.”

This is the story all of CNN said they were sticking by, right?

Yeah, remember this from about 24 hours ago?

Yes, we’re very interested to hear more from CNN.

Update:

Huh … Lanny Davis’s name has vanished from the “Michael Cohen Truth Fund” GoFundMe page.

“Truth fund.”
