President Trump's former lawyer, Michael Cohen, just made a big splash. Opting to hire a former Clinton lawyer to represent him. Mr. Cohen has reportedly hired Lanny David who represented former President Bill Clinton when he was under investigation.
According to Business Insider:
President Donald Trump's longtime lawyer Michael Cohen just hired Lanny Davis, who served as former President Bill Clinton's special counsel as he was under investigation, as the latest addition to his revamped legal team.
Davis's hire was reported by The New York Times on Thursday. Times reporter Maggie Haberman tweeted that Davis told her he was retained by Cohen as he prepares for a legal and public relations "onslaught."
"Like most of America, I have been following the matter regarding Michael Cohen with great interest," Davis said in a statement to Haberman. "As an attorney, I have talked to Michael many times in the last two weeks. Then I read his words published on July 2, and I recognized his sincerity. Michael Cohen deserves to tell his side of the story — subject, of course, to the advice of counsel."
Davis's noting of July 2 is a reference to Cohen's ABC News interview. In that conversation with ABC's George Stephanopoulos, Cohen split with his old boss and fueled speculation that he could soon "flip" and cooperate with the government regarding the criminal investigation he's at the center of in the Southern District of New York.
This new information comes on the heels of an interview with ABC by Cohen where he expressed where his loyalties are. Indicating that he may "flip" on Trump.
President Trump's attorney Rudy Giuliani responded to the news without much concern. Indicating that he thinks Mr. Cohen should have the best legal team possible.
