Michael Cohen’s lawyer, Lanny Davis, told CNN’s Anderson Cooper on Wednesday evening that the former Trump lawyer had no information connecting the president to his son’s June 2016 Trump Tower meeting with Russian lawyers.

Cooper pointed out that discrepancies existed between the story of connections between Trump and the meeting and Cohen’s testimonies to the House and Senate Intelligence Committees.

“We were not the source of the [Trump Tower] story,” Davis explained, saying they have not fed information to the media. The lawyer added that Cohen stands by his testimony to the committees, in which Cohen recounts that he had no knowledge of any Trump Tower meetings until 2017 media reports.

“So, Michael Cohen does not have information that President Trump knew about the Trump Tower meeting with the Russians beforehand or even after?” Cooper asked.

“No, he does not,” Davis said.

CNN reported in July that Cohen attended a meeting with Trump and the president’s son, Donald Trump, Jr., in which Trump, Jr. notified the then-candidate of the planned meeting with Russians ahead of time.
