CNN finally released a longer defense of its dubious Trump Tower article on Tuesday but still didn’t address a key issue with their reporting.
CNN’s Jim Sciutto, Carl Bernstein, and Marshall Cohen reported on July 27 that Michael Cohen was prepared to tell special counsel Robert Mueller that President Donald Trump had advance knowledge of a 2016 Trump Tower meeting with the Russians.
Multiple issues have been raised with the story since CNN’s original report. (RELATED: Lanny Davis Busts CNN — Admits He Was Source For Network’s Debunked Story)
Cohen’s attorney, Lanny Davis, told CNN’s Anderson Cooper last Wednesday that the reporting got “mixed up” and claimed that he was not a source for the story. He asserted that Cohen “does not” have any information related to when Trump knew about the Trump Tower meeting.
