Michael Cohen's lawyer admits to being source of CNN story

President Donald Trump waves after speaking during a rally Tuesday Aug. 21 2018 in Charleston

Sounds to me like someone is trying to make up stories in order to get himself out of an unrelated jam (Taxi cabs maybe?).

"Davis's latest comments cast doubt on what Cohen may know, including about a June 2016 meeting in New York's Trump Tower attended by Trump's eldest son and a Russian lawyer", the Post wrote on Sunday night. "I think the Southern District is the greatest threat".

"If I were Trump's lawyers, I'd be focusing all of my defense efforts on the Southern District, and let the Mueller probe go".

Robert Mueller's special counsel recently secured a plea deal from Donald Trump's former attorney, Michael Cohen and gave immunity to AMI CEO David Pecker, who quickly confirmed the validity of Cohen's claims that Trump paid off women to remain quiet about their affairs just ahead of the 2016 November election.

Federal prosecutors in NY are considering possible charges against the Trump Organization in relation to the Cohen hush-money agreement with Daniels, an official briefed confirmed to ABC News on Friday.

'If you're associated with Donald Trump, they will Manafort you, they will Cohen you, they will do all of these things to you, ' Dershowitz cautioned.

The two victims killed in Florida game tournament shooting identified
Sheriff Mike Williams issued a statement saying: "We just finished clearing The Landing of potential witnesses and victims there". Police have yet to officially identify all the victims, but several survivors spoke up on social media following the shooting .

Dershowitz, an informal Trump adviser, said in an appearance on ABC News' "This Week" that the expanding probe by prosecutors with the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of NY could spell the greatest peril for Trump because of the lack of constitutional protections for the president at that level.

Separately, federal prosecutors in NY granted immunity to tabloid executive and longtime Trump friend David Pecker to discuss Cohen's case.

Dershowitz said that while Trump has the right to fire Sessions, "I think it would be a mistake to fire anybody".

Attorney Alan Dershowitz, an ally of Donald Trump's, is warning that if prosecutors can come after the president than anyone can be targeted.

Dershowitz said Sunday that "it would be great" to have Democrats in charge on Capitol Hill so that they can conduct investigations into Trump's actions.

Lewandowski said those charges had nothing to do with the Trump campaign. And Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg has also been granted immunity in exchange for cooperation with the Cohen investigation.
