Michael Cohen's lawyer Lanny Davis did not get much love on Megyn Kelly's TODAY show during his appearance on Wednesday. Kelly asked him to confirm whether or not President Trump knew about the payments Cohen, Trump's lawyer at the time, made to Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal ahead of the 2016 election. Cohen said Trump not only knew about it, but coordinated the payments.
Cohen, Davis said, is a changed man.
“He’s gone through a transformation,” Davis said. "He did a lot of things to defend Donald Trump that he now regrets. He’s a new person when he first called me he told me that he was changing his life and now telling the truth about Donald Trump and that’s why he wanted me to help him.”
“Can I just take the opportunity to remind everyone that Michael Cohen has suffered a tragic and difficult experience with his family, he’s without resources, and we’ve set up a website called MichaelCohenTruth.com that we’re hoping that he will get some help from the American people so that we can continue to tell the truth."
The audience erupted in laughter.
“The audience doesn’t appear ready to donate, Lanny,” Kelly noted, holding back a chuckle herself.
“Maybe they’re not as interested in getting the truth out about Donald Trump as many other people in the country,” Davis said in defense.
Then, this apparently happened.
Lanny Davis, on Fox News earlier, asked people to donate at https://t.co/ooNHda36Nq. Seems like someone else, though, purchased that domain and re-directed it to Trump's campaign site...— Alex Pappas (@AlexPappas) August 22, 2018
The actual Cohen fund is now up to nearly $138,000.
