New Michael Cohen Lawyer Lanny Davis Speaks Out: He’s Made ‘Declaration of Independence’ from Trump

Lanny Davis, new lawyer to Michael Cohen, is speaking out about recent comments his client made.

Cohen broke from President Trump in his interview with George Stephanopoulos, raising questions about what exactly he plans to do and what he knows.

Davis recently took a swipe at Rudy Giuliani over comments he made about his client this week:
