Attorney for Michael Cohen keeps changing his story on Trump Tower meeting

Trump Tweets Go Silent, Quote-Tweets Himself -

Special counsel Robert Mueller's team has questioned witnesses about whether President Trump's former attorney Michael Cohen conducted separate personal business while employed by the Trump Organization - even after the Federal Bureau of Investigation raided Cohen's office and hotel, CNBC reported Tuesday. If true, the information could be some of the most damning evidence yet of conspiracy between Trump and the Russians.

Now, Davis admits he was -in fact- the source of the story.

Both a spokesman for the special counsel's office and Cohen's attorney Lanny Davis declined to comment about the CNBC report. "But I am not sure".

Reacting to CNN's latest attempt at saving face over the story, Republican strategist Arthur Schwartz said it was "obvious" that the network is "conspiring with Bernstein to save their reputation and his legacy", because he "didn't have any other sources".

CBS News has updated its original report.

Another Trump loyalist granted immunity as prosecutors close in on Trump business
Green claimed that Trump and former attorney Michael Cohen "conspired to commit an offense" regarding campaign finance violations. Cohen, who pleaded guilty to federal campaign finance charges, did no legal work in connection with the matter, prosecutors said.

But Davis' admission Monday, along with backtracking his claims that Trump knew of Russia's email hack, raise significant questions about the Cohen team's credibility.

One of the most weird aspects of the investigations engulfing the Trump administration is the lawyers involved.

Cohen pleaded guilty on August 21 to eight federal charges, including campaign finance violations and tax and bank fraud connected to cab businesses in NY and Chicago. That same afternoon, Paul Manafort, Trump's former campaign chairman, was convicted on eight of the 18 bank and finance fraud charges he was facing in Virginia.

Cohen's account of Trump's involvement in his efforts in 2016 to silence Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal, who say they had affairs with the president years earlier, are still huge political and legal issues for Trump.

The latest round of the drama was ignited last week when two of Trump's former associates, Michael Cohen and Paul Manafort, were found guilty in two separate courts at almost the exact same time. "When I spoke to you I should have been more clear and this was my mistake that I couldn't confirm I had full confidence in about what I thought I knew about details". He followed up, saying he "regretted his error".
