From Slate August 27, 2008.
“A day in the life of Hillary Clinton’s biggest fan.
When it comes to defending Hillary Clinton, Lanny Davis has no rival. After Clinton had been mathematically eliminated from contention for the Democratic nomination, Davis continued to campaign for her. After she conceded, he lobbied for a veep slot for her. And after Biden got the nod, he pushed to get her a choice speaking gig at the convention. Now he’s agitating for her because, well, he’s Lanny Davis. It’s what he does.”
“Davis inhabits a gray zone between official surrogate and independent pundit. He communicates daily with the Clinton camp, but he doesn’t hold an official position and doesn’t get paid. Everyone benefits: The campaign gets to broadcast a mostly on-message voice who can still claim independence. The networks get to interview an insider who knows the spin but doesn’t always go full-torque. And Davis gets to practice law at his firm, Orrick, Herrington, and Sutcliffe, without the potential conflict of belonging to a campaign. (And, of course, Fox makes it worth his while.)”
“Davis hands me his coffee and calls in to a radio interview with Michael Medved, a right-wing talk show host. Medved’s an old friend from Yale, much like Hillary Clinton (Davis met her in law school), Bill Clinton (met him after law school; worked in his administration), Joe Lieberman (worked on his first campaign; Lieberman held the pillow at his son’s bris), John Kerry (Davis thought he’d be president, even back then), George W. Bush (rushed his frat while Bush was prez), Greg Craig (no longer friends), and other people you may have heard of. Some people entertain paranoid fantasies about the media and political and business worlds being one big gentleman’s club. Now I know why.”
From Zero Hedge August 22, 2018.
“If there was any doubt whether Michael Cohen had flipped, despite statements that he was not cooperating with the government as part of his guilty plea and refusing to name the “candidate” who instructed him to violate campaign finance law, that was promptly dissolved in the following hours when Cohen’s lawyer, Lanny Davis said that his client has “knowledge” about computer hacking and collusion, and is willing to speak with Special Counsel Robert Mueller about a “conspiracy to collude” with Russia during the 2016 presidential campaign.”
“More troubling for Trump, Davis said on Wednesday then said that “there is no dispute that Trump committed a crime” as he repeated that “Cohen has knowledge of a Russian conspiracy”, even if it was still unclear if Cohen or Davis have any evidence or proof to substantiate their allegations.
According to the NY Post, last month a source told the publication that Cohen was present when Trump was informed by his son Donald Trump Jr. that Russians offered “dirt” on then-candidate Hillary Clinton. Trump claimed he “didn’t know anything about the meeting” because “nobody told me” about it.”
Think there may be credibility issues with Cihen and Davis?
