Michael Cohen's Lawyer Says Client 'More Than Happy' to Share Information 'That Should Be of Interest' to Mueller

Just hours after President Donald Trump was directly implicated in a criminal conspiracy by his own longtime personal attorney Michael Cohen, who plead guilty to eight felony counts in a federal court on Tuesday, Cohen’s own lawyer, Lanny Davis, went on national television with MSNBC‘s Rachel Maddow and said his client has a lot more information that would be of interest to Special Counsel Robert Mueller and that he will be “more than happy” to share it.

According to his remarks on Maddow’s show, Davis said that Cohen is willing to tell Mueller what he knows about the “possibility of a conspiracy to collude and corrupt the American democracy system in the 2016 election” and also what Trump knew about computer hacking.

Watch the interview:

On ABC’s Good Morning America, Davis repeated to anchor George Stephanapolous that  his client is prepared to share more about what he knows:


The guilty pleas from Cohen, and this news that he is willing to speak directly–if he hasn’t already–with Mueller’s investigators, came on the same day that Trump’s former presidential campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, was found guilty on eight felony counts of tax and bank fraud by a jury in Virginia.

As Adam Davidson notes in his analysis at The New Yorker, the events of Tuesday, taken together, should end the idea that there is some kind of separation between Trump’s personal and business dealings, and the potential criminal acts or violations that may have taken place during his campaign run or since. Davidson writes:

With Lanny Davis—despite his long history as among the worst shills in Washington, D.C.—now saying his client knows more about Trump and is willing to share that information with Mueller or other prosecutors, it was not hard to find many observers saying that Tuesday, August 21st will go down as a historic day in presidential history.
