Cohen's lawyer, Lanny Davis, spent recent days walking back his bombshell assertions that his client could tell the special counsel that President Trump had prior knowledge of a meeting with a Russian lawyer to get damaging information on Hillary Clinton.Trump's lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, caused a stir last week when he told The Washington Post that Trump had sought his advice on the possibility of granting a pardon to former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, who was convicted last week on tax and bank fraud charges.Giuliani told the Post that he counseled against the move at least until the end of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation, but Fox News later reported that Giuliani said that Trump had not broached the idea of a pardon for Manafort specifically. The prospect of Cohen telling Mueller that President Trump knew in advance about the June 2016 meeting has hung over the Russia investigation since CNN – citing anonymous sources – reported last month that Cohen was willing to share the information.Giuliani also has misspoken about the Trump Tower meeting.Another Trump lawyer, Jay Sekulow, was forced earlier this month to correct an assertion from last year that Trump was not involved in dictating a news media statement aboard Air Force One about the purpose of the Trump Tower meeting.
