Ex-Clinton Lawyer Lanny Davis Joins Michael Cohen's Defense Team

Satirist Sacha Baron Cohen is up to something new

Variety has reported that Sacha Baron Cohen is now engaged in negotiations with Showtime to make a return to television with a brand new comedy interview show.

Variety is reporting that Sacha Baron Cohen is in talks with Showtime to launch a brand new comedic interview series. "Then I read his words published on July 2, and I recognized his sincerity", Davis said in a statement.

He added, "Michael Cohen deserves to tell his side of the story - subject, of course, to the advice of counsel".

Prosecutors in New York's Southern District are investigating Cohen for alleged violations of election law and possible financial crimes associated with his personal business dealings after special counsel Robert Mueller's team referred some potential legal issues related to Cohen's personal finances and businesses.

Cohen and Trump have a history of mocking each other, dating back to the early 2000s.

Speaking out for in his first extended interview in months, Cohen told Stephanopoulos that he would put his loyalty to "family and country" before loyalty to Trump.

These sources would not comment on whether Petrillo has been meeting with prosecutors in NY and referred inquiries about any potential case to Petrillo.

A.M. UPDATE: Trump pardons Dwight and Steven Hammond
The Hammonds could have faced less than a year in prison under a plea offer they declined, she said. Prosecutors appealed, and the Hammonds were ordered to serve the full five-year terms.

Satirizing anthropomorphic pieces of fecal matter is no easy task, but Sacha Baron Cohen appears to have taken on the challenge. Trump took to both Twitter and YouTube to lambast Baron Cohen's antics, calling Baron Cohen's stunt "a disgrace". Hard telling. All we can say for sure is that Baron Cohen certainly knows how to create a ridiculous, button-pushing character that stirs up all kinds of controversy. As you've never seen him before.

Next, Cohen spoke about the Trump Tower meeting, which both the President and Giuliani have claimed is a non-event, the source said.

The FBI raided his home, office, and hotel room in April, and seized about four million documents. Trump has also said he is not anxious about Cohen giving the government anything damaging on him because he hasn't done anything wrong. On his website he describes himself as a lawyer, crisis manager, consultant, author, and TV commentator.

He likewise broke with Trump's criticism of federal investigators.

Cohen was long one of Trump's closest aides who ran interference for his former boss on a wide range of personal and legal matters, earning the reputation as a loyal "fixer".

Mr. Cohen did not respond to a request for comment.
