The attorney for Michael Cohen says his client is ready to fully cooperate with Robert Mueller and has much to share.

Courtesy of The Hill:

“Mr. Cohen has knowledge on certain subjects that should be of interest to the special counsel and is more than happy to tell the special counsel all that he knows,” Davis said on MSNBC’s “Rachel Maddow Show.”

Cohen’s attorney suggested President Trump had knowledge of the 2016 Trump Tower meeting, as well as advanced knowledge of the 2016 hacking of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) by Russian intelligence officers.

Davis said Cohen is also willing to discuss whether Trump knew in advance about the DNC hack.

“We know he publicly cheered it on, but did he also have private information?” Davis said of the hack.

So the suggestion is that Cohen can prove that Trump knew about the Trump Tower meeting well before it happened and also knew in advance about the DNC hack. 

Can you say “smoking gun?”

Perhaps that is why Trump tweeted this out this morning. 

Trump also sent out this tweet which many perceive is a hint that he might be willing to pardon Cohen if he keeps his mouth shut.

However, Lanny Davis responded with this courtesy of NPR:

Less than 24 hours after Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to eight federal counts — ranging from tax evasion to campaign finance violations — Donald Trump’s longtime attorney and fixer brushed aside the possibility of a pardon. In fact, Cohen’s own lawyer, Lanny Davis, said his client would outright reject one if it were granted.

“I know that Mr. Cohen would never accept a pardon from a man that he considers to be both corrupt and a dangerous person in the oval office,” Davis told NPR’s Morning Edition. “And [Cohen] has flatly authorized me to say under no circumstances would he accept a pardon from Mr. Trump.”

Davis said that President Trump has used his pardon power to bail out “political cronies,” and that Cohen “is not interested in being dirtied by a pardon from such a man.”

Man, I  am going to need so much more popcorn.

    Undocumented Murder Suspect Worked For Prominent Iowa Republican

    …Rivera’s employer — where had worked for four years with no legal problems — was a farming corporation owned by one of Iowa’s most prominent Republicans. The company, Yarrabee Farms, is owned by Craig Lang who was:

    President of the Iowa Farm Bureau,
    Chair of the State Board of Regents, and
    Republican candidate for Secretary of Agriculture.

    In Iowa, those are VERY high profile positions. So why doesn’t Fox News talk about the fact that a rich REPUBLICAN employed the illegal immigrant as a farm worker? The reason is that many, many Republican business owners want cheap labor, and they do not want to crack down on immigration in this country.

    This means that as Donald Trump and the GOP score political points and win elections by promising to crack down on immigrants, nothing ever happens because most big-money GOP donors want the cheap labor that illegal immigration gives them. This makes their businesses much more profitable.

        Whoa, Fox News! Mollie Tibbetts’ Accused Killer Is In Iowa Legally, Lawyer Says

        …The government is incorrectly promoting the idea that Rivera is not in Iowa legally, attorney Allen Richards of Tama said in a court document asking for a gag order in the case.

        “Sad and sorry Trump has weighed in on this matter in national media which will poison the entire possible pool of jury members,” Richards wrote, referencing a statement from the president citing Tibbetts’ death as an example why “immigration laws are such a disgrace.”

        Rivera has lived in Iowa for four to seven years, working at Yarrabee Farms, a Brooklyn-area farm owned by Eric Lang, the brother of Craig Lang, a prominent Republican…..

    Trump Tries To Lie On Fox News And Gets Immediately Destroyed By Cohen Tape

    Trump tried to lie in an interview about when he knew about the hush money payments on Fox News, but an audio tape that was already released by Michael Cohen proves that the president is not telling the truth.

    Video:

    Obama has nothing to do with this, but the Cohen tapes do

    The false equivalency to an Obama campaign finance violation is a smokescreen. Obama has nothing to do with this, and his missing of a reporting deadline is not the same thing as a felony plot to hide an illegal contribution. It is obvious why Michael Cohen taped Trump. The president immediately tried to lie when asked about the payments, but he is caught on tape.

      So Cohen doesn’t want to pay for it himself?
      WHY does this not surprise me. Remember, people, this guy is a snake.

    Trump organization CFO Allen Weisselberg has been granted immunity in exchange for testimony.

    Trump rage-tweeting that cooperating with prosecutors ought to be illegal.

    Trump is shitting kittens. No wonder he is tweeting all hours of the night. Probably can’t sleep for the night sweats.

    He does understand that Mueller already has his tax records, right?

    Prime example how failure to learn dooms you to repeat the same mistakes. Only Trump is making more mistakes than Nixon for far worse crimes. No wonder Bitch McConnell is racing to get Kavanaugh confirmed.

    Kavanaugh will henceforth be known as the Fake Justice.
