Lanny Davis: Michael Cohen will ‘state publicly all he knows’ about Trump after Mueller investigation wrap

Attorney Lanny Davis suggested Wednesday his client Michael Cohen has more to reveal about President Trump.

After Trump’s former fixer was sentenced to three years in prison Wednesday for his role in a hush-money scandal during the 2016 campaign, Davis, who serves as an adviser to Cohen, said “Trump’s repeated lies cannot contradict stubborn facts.”

“At the appropriate time, after Mr. Mueller completes his investigation and issues his final report, I look forward to assisting Michael to state publicly all he knows about Mr. Trump — and that includes any appropriate congressional committee interested in the search for truth and the difference between facts and lies,” Davis said in a statement.

A federal judge in Manhattan sentenced Cohen, 52, to 36 months in prison. Cohen pleaded guilty in August to bank and tax fraud charges, as well as campaign finance violations.

Cohen admitted he arranged payments to two women who alleged they had affairs with Trump years ago. In pleading guilty, Cohen implicated the president, saying he made the payments at the direction of Trump “for the principal purpose of influencing the election.”

Special counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election, charged Cohen last month in a separate case with lying to Congress about negotiations for a Trump Tower in Russia. Cohen also pleaded guilty in that case.

It is likely as part of his plea deal that he agreed to not reveal the other crimes he was involved in until prosecutors make it public.
