Lanny Davis, a lawyer for Michael Cohen, said Tuesday that the former Trump attorney may have information showing that President Donald Trump had foreknowledge about “the computer crime of hacking” during the 2016 presidential campaign.
“I can tell you that Mr. Cohen has knowledge on certain subjects that should be of interest to the special counsel and is more than happy to tell special counsel all that he knows,” Davis told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow.
“Not just about the obvious possibility of a conspiracy to collude and corrupt the American democracy system in the 2016 election — which the Trump Tower meeting was all about — but also, knowledge about the computer crime of hacking and whether or not Mr. Trump knew ahead of time about that crime and even cheered it on.”
“We know that he publicly cheered it on. Did he also have private information?” Davis continued.
