As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by WASHINGTONEXAMINER.COM:
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 unveiled 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.
The article goes on to state the following:
Two donors told the Washington Examiner they have regrets after Davis admitted lying to news outlets in late July, when he claimed Cohen could testify that he witnessed Donald Trump Jr. notify his father in advance of a Trump Tower meeting with Russians offering dirt on Hillary Clinton.
Davis now says he doesn’t know if that’s true, despite anonymously providing the information to CNN and then confirming the CNN report anonymously for the New York Post and the Washington Post. “I made a mistake,” the former Bill Clinton aide told BuzzFeed on Monday.

When Davis first started the GoFundMe account to help pay his client’s legal bill, he incorrectly gave out the wrong website URL (MichaelCohenTruth.com), which was quickly purchased up by someone who then re-directed it to President Donald Trump’s campaign website.
The link that Davis intended to announce, which directs to the GoFundMe account for Cohen is MichaelCohenTruthFund.com.
Lanny Davis has told BuzzFeed News that he was an anonymous source for CNN’s Trump Tower bombshell, a story he now disputes. He also regrets lying about his involvement, on CNN’s own air, in an interview with Anderson Cooper last week https://t.co/gUO3piTM0V

“‘I made a mistake,’ #LannyDavis said. Regarding his comments about a month later to #AndersonCooper, he added, ‘I did not mean to be cute.’” This lying piece of shit thinks undermining a presidency was being “cute?” https://t.co/9AnjFwu3PN
