Michael Cohen's Lawyer ADMITS He Was 'Source' Behind Trump Tower Story

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

As President Donald Trump inches ever-closer to serious legal and political peril, his aides and advisors are increasingly anxious that he will do even more damage to himself by lashing out while he fluctuates between extreme moods, according to a new report from Vanity Fair reporter Gabriel Sherman.

And now, Buzzfeed reports that Lanny Davis, Cohen's lawyer, has admitted he was one of the anonymous sources for the CNN story, and that he can not corroborate his account of Cohen's story. Big question: Was Lanny Davis also a source for CNN's story?

"I think he has constitutional defenses to the investigation being conducted by Mueller", Dershowitz said. I wasn't at the meeting.

That version of events received new scrutiny last week when Davis himself went on CNN and seemed to contradict the July story, saying he wasn't certain that Cohen had made any such claim about Trump.

Donald Trump Jr. had told the Senate Judiciary Committee that he didn't tell his father about his meeting with a Russian lawyer to discuss potentially damaging information on Hillary Clinton.

Davis, attempting to clean up his comments in interviews last week after Cohen pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations, tax evasion and bank fraud, told the Post he "should have been more clear" that he "could not independently confirm what happened".

Sears Is Closing 46 More Stores -- Including In Michigan
The company said this week they informed associates at 46 unprofitable stores that they will be closing their stores in November. Specifically, the company said 13 Kmart stores and 33 Sears stores deemed "non-profitable" will close as early as November.

Britain presses for more European Union sanctions against Russian Federation
The bloc hasn't expanded the sanctions it imposed in response to Russia's annexation of Crimea in 2014. The Kremlin denies involvement.

Davis also told Buzzfeed that he served as a source for other outlets that were seeking to confirm CNN's story.

Davis said he should not have expressed such confidence in his information.

In a statement Saturday, a CNN spokeswoman said, "We stand by our story, and are confident in our reporting of it".

The Virginia-Pilot says a new report reveals Trump is considering the move because his current White House counsel is adamantly against the move to pardon Trump's former campaign chairman.

Senators Richard Burr, Republican of North Carolina, and Mark Warner, Democrat of Virginia, leaders of the Senate committee, said in recent days that Cohen had sent word to the committee that he had no desire to amend that testimony.

Trump has slammed Cohen for being a poor lawyer.
