Lawyer backs off claims about information Cohen has

Neither Cohen nor his lead defense attorney, Guy Petrillo, responded to requests for comment.

Last week Cohen pleaded guilty to federal crimes, including bank fraud and tax evasion.

By Cohen's account, Trump approved going ahead with the meeting with the Russians, according to sources.

"It is alleged that I called Donald Trump on October 1 and that he put me on speaker phone [and] that the source overheard", Mr. Stone told the newspaper, decrying the claim as "horse [expletive]". "The answer is that I did NOT know about the meeting". And by the media's own standards, that means CNN is pushing fake news.

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

President Trump's former campaign adviser Roger Stone pushed back Monday against a yet-to-be-published report, preemptively denying allegations that he alerted then-candidate Trump in advance of WikiLeaks releasing emails stolen from the chairman of Democratic rival Hillary Clinton's campaign.

With members and former members of the Trump administration and foundation being picked off one-by-one, Trump's son, Donald Trump Jr., may be next, according to multiple reports.

The information in the Post story, which was attributed to one person familiar with discussions among Cohen's friends, came from Davis, who is now acknowledging his role on the record. The CNN story originally said Davis offered no comment. Davis, however, told The Washington Post this week, "I should have been more clear - including with you - that I could not independently confirm what happened".

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

Although the CNN reporting was proven to be wrong, they are continuing to support the story and are not offering a redaction.

Sherman also says that in light of White House Counsel Don McGahn's contention that Trump shouldn't pardon Manafort, Trump may have another attorney write up the paperwork to grant clemency to his former campaign chair anyway.

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.
