Michael Cohen’s attorney Lanny Davis has been around Washington for years, and his acting as a source for a CNN report that President Donald Trump knew about a campaign-year meeting with a Russian lawyer gives “great insight” into the Clinton-Obama “spin machine,” former White House Chief of Staff John Sununu said Monday.
“They want to put something out, whether it’s true or not,” Sununu, who served under President George H.W. Bush, told Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom.” “They create, first of all, a network of people that will confirm the story to the press, people who may really not have any idea what they are going to confirm, but having been primed by the likes of Lanny Davis are ready to give the nod when the press contacts them.”
Davis “did what former CIA Director John Brennan did” with the dossier created about Trump,” said Sununu, and “what the whole process that now has created the investigation was built on.”
However, Davis, who has worked for both former President Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton, “got burned” by not “doing it as well as he usually does.”
Davis said Sunday he takes the blame for the story, but Sununu said that just makes himself look “more foolish.”
He said he is also sure CNN knows what is happening when a source like Davispasses on information, but “they got burned especially on this story because the CNN reporters, led by [Carl] Bernstein lied when they said that Lanny Davis declined to comment on the story and put that into the original story.”
