"My observation is that it was an evolution that caused him to decide once Donald Trump was president that he had to tell truth and change his life", Davis told the AP. "I didn't know him well, but I knew nothing bad about Michael Cohen until all of this started to happen in the last couple weeks".
CNN said Cohen lacks evidence such as an audio recording to corroborate his assertion that Trump knew of the meeting. He's been lying for years.
Those who have known Trump for years said Cohen was a constant presence by his boss' side and eager to use the Trump name around NY.
His lawyer, Davis, a Democrat once known as a fierce defender of President Bill Clinton, would not comment on whether Cohen was fishing for a deal. Trump has denied having had an encounter with Daniels.
"I did NOT know of the meeting with my son, Don jr". "Sounds to me like someone is trying to make up stories in order to get himself out of an unrelated jam (Taxi cabs maybe?)."Sources told CNN that Cohen claims that then-candidate Trump had advance notice of the June 2016 meeting in Trump Tower involving Trump Jr. and is willing to assert that claim to special counsel Robert Mueller". She noted that Giuliani called Cohen an "honest, honorable lawyer" on "This Week" in May. "I wouldn't accept him as a witness as a prosecutor".
After repeated denials from Donald Trump Sr. and Jr., CNN reported a bombshell that completely undermines the Trump administration's narrative about the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting with Russian operatives who offered dirt on Hillary Clinton.
The meeting, between Trump Jr. and the lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya, which allegedly included the president's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and then-campaign chair Paul Manafort, is one of the key events in the origins of the Russian Federation investigation.

She met with Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas after laying flowers at the tomb of Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat in Ramallah. She faced 12 charges, including aggravated assault, and in March plead guilty to a reduced charge sheet that included assault.
During his televised appearances Sunday, Giuliani continued to rail against Trump's former personal attorney, telling CBS, "I don't see how you can believe Michael Cohen", and accusing Cohen of violating Trump's attorney-client privilege.
According to Giuliani, the 100 or more tapes seized from Cohen prove that "the president did nothing wrong".
Alan Futerfas, a lawyer for the Trump Organization and Donald Trump Jr, told Reuters, 'Donald Trump Jr has been professional and responsible throughout the Mueller and Congressional investigations. Nicholas Biase, a spokesman for Manhattan federal prosecutors, also declined to comment.
The June 2016 meeting was arranged after a publicist who knew Trump Jr. told him in emails - in no uncertain terms - that a senior Russian official "offered to provide the Trump campaign" with damaging information about Clinton, and that the outreach was "part of Russia and its government's support for Mr. Trump". 'But, you know, we might consider a few questions in that area also'. Trump said during a morning tweet storm. The Times also reported in June that Trump personally dictated a misleading statement about the objective of the meeting, even after his aides repeatedly denied that he did so. There were four Russians in the room, including a lawyer with Kremlin ties, a businessman who worked for an oligarch and a lobbyist with old KGB connections.
It came after Cohen reportedly said Trump approved an infamous meeting between campaign staff and Russians during the 2016 campaign.
House conservatives - including Ryan - still say the Justice Department isn't producing the documents they want about the early stages of the Russian Federation investigation, which means Rosenstein isn't out of the woods completely.
