    Breitbart ^ | 3 Sep 2018 | Joel B, Pollak
    CNN swept aside journalistic ethics on Sunday by endorsing a blacklisting campaign with a glowing interview of Matt Rivitz, the founder of Sleeping Giants, a failed effort to censor Breitbart News by harassing and intimidating companies whose advertisements may (or may not) have appeared on the website. The interview took place on Reliable Sources, a Sunday morning show that once focused on analyzing the media, but which in recent years has been turned into the editorial mouthpiece of CNN president Jeff Zucker, voiced through host Brian Stelter. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I_eWBPpCBiU Sunday’s program was helmed by substitute anchor John Avlon, in for Stelter...

    Now here’s something terrifying that’s swinging into action in a big way: the Deep State with dictatorial, unlimited prosecutorial powers. The Deep State is the permanent government of high powered bureaucrats. The most dangerous of these are federal and state prosecutors who can turn a man’s life upside down (woman’s, too) and make life not worth living. A prosecutor has powers that can and do send the innocent to the gas chamber, to prison for life, and frighten even the roughest and toughest of the tough. If they have a political axe to grind, they do it without a second...
  • Even Politico Is Critical of CNN on Its Lanny Davis Story Coverup

    Even liberal Politico finds untenable CNN's refusal to correct their July 26 "scoop" fed to them by Michael Cohen's lawyer Lanny Davis that President Donald Trump knew in advance about the Trump Tower meeting that included his son and a Russian lawyer, which was subsequently denied by Davis' August 22 admission that he did not know if this was true. Politico writer Jason Schwartz also wondered if Davis can continue to appear on network news shows due his part in knowingly spreading what CNN stubbornly refuses to correct despite the fact that they initiated this fraud on August 29 in "Lanny Davis burns reporters. Should they...

    Lanny Davis represents Michael Cohen, the lawyer who secretly taped his then-client, now-President Donald Trump. If you're keeping score, Davis is the same defense lawyer who represented President Bill Clinton during the investigation by special prosecutor Kenneth Starr. To defend Clinton, Davis employed what at the time seemed audacious: a grab-him-by-the-throat-and-rip-his-head-off strategy to vilify Starr. Starr's poll numbers dropped. Davis later admitted, "Whenever I went off the facts and into attacks on Starr, I felt very uncomfortable." To defend his current client, Davis went on television and said that Cohen has the goods on Trump and can prove Trump directed...
  • Why is CNN avoiding the truth about Lanny Davis’ lies?

    NY Post ^ | 8/29/2018 | Editorial Board
    Last Thursday, we asked how long it would take before Lanny Davis again changed his story about what his client, Michael Cohen, knows about President Trump. It turned out to be four days. Meanwhile, CNN is standing by a story that relied in part on claims that Davis now says he never should’ve made. It all started with last month’s bombshell CNN report that Cohen, Trump’s former personal attorney, was claiming his then-boss knew in advance of the 2016 Trump Tower meeting between campaign officials and a Russian operative. The CNN story said outright that Davis had declined comment, implying...
  • Donors to Lanny Davis 'truth fund' want refunds after he admits lying

    Washington Examiner ^ | Aug. 28, 2018
    Some donors to a "truth fund" promoted by attorney Lanny Davis believe he should issue refunds after he admitted lying about what his client Michael Cohen knows about President Trump. Davis started the "Michael Cohen Truth Fund" last week, and netted about $165,000 since the former Trump "fixer" pleaded guilty to tax and bank fraud, and to campaign finance crimes he said were at Trump's direction. Davis promoted the fundraiser with interviews saying Cohen would be an open book for special counsel Robert Mueller, before saying he gave false information to news outlets about what Cohen knows.
  • Lanny Davis Says He Was A Source For CNN’s Trump Tower Story

    BuzzFeed ^ | August 27, 2018 | Steven Perlberg
    Attorney Lanny Davis says he was an anonymous source in a July CNN story that reported his client, Michael Cohen, had privately claimed that President Trump had advance knowledge of the infamous Trump Tower meeting between his son and Russians — contradicting Davis's own words on CNN's air last week. In the story, Cohen was reported to claim he had personally witnessed Donald Trump Jr. informing then-candidate Trump about the June 2016 meeting. Such a claim from Cohen would directly contradict Trump’s statements about his knowledge of the meeting, where Russians were set to offer dirt on Hillary Clinton. CNN’s...

    One of the most bizarre aspects of the investigations engulfing the Trump administration is the lawyers involved. Here we have a presidency on the line, and this is Trump's team? The top legal spokesmen for each side are . . . Rudy Giuliani and Lanny Davis!? Up until this point, though, Giuliani was the Great Contradictor and Davis was merely a colorful character. Now that has changed in a big way. In a new interview with The Washington Post's Tom Hamburger and Rosalind S. Helderman, Davis is backing off two massive claims he made in recent weeks, including that former...

    What do you do when your party has no viable policies acceptable to voters and no candidate to credibly lead them? I wanted to find out, so I wandered over to the Café California, where Democrats never leave. I'm old enough that with a bit of padding and an ugly large hat, I could look like a Bella Abzug wannabe, and I sat in the middle of the room, turning my hearing aids up to full blast. I couldn't stare at the speakers and don't know most of them, so I can't give you their names, but this is what...

    NOTE: Just because Lanny Davis, the ultimate Clinton spinmeister, declares his client guilty doesn’t mean he committed a crime. So good luck with the ongoing shilling for Michael Cohen, hope that GoFundMe works out for you. And RIP Senator McCain; regardless of everything else he did to tick me off I’m giving him a political pass simply for his five years as a POW in that Hanoi Hellhole. Please don’t speak ill of the dead today. Posted from: MOTUS A.D.

    Conservative Review ^ | August 23, 2018 | Jordan Schachtel ·
    Lanny Davis, the longtime Clinton confidant who is also the attorney for former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen, is on the payroll of a pro-Moscow Ukrainian oligarch with direct ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin. According to Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) records reviewed by Conservative Review, Davis is an active registered foreign agent for Ukrainian billionaire Dmytro Firtash. A review of his social media records shows that Davis has never tweeted about his Ukrainian client, seemingly preferring to advocate quietly for Firtash, who faces enormous legal issues in courtrooms across the world. Firtash’s ties to Putin have been exposed in...
