A July 27 CNN story which the network has called a “bombshell” has turned out to be riddled with lies, and was clearly published only to further the bogus Russian “collusion” narrative.
The former cable news titan broke sensational news claiming that Michael Cohen, former attorney to President Donald J. Trump, had told investigators that he personally witnessed Trump being informed of a 2016 meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya. The President has long denied having knowledge of the meeting amid mainstream press speculation.
CNN sourced “people who have discussed the matter with Cohen,” and claimed that Cohen’s own attorney, Lanny Davis, declined to comment on the story.
The narrative crumbled when Davis admitted he was the anonymous source – in CNN’s words “people who have discussed the matter with Cohen” – contradicting the claim he refused to comment on the story.
The fact that Davis did not comment for the story is an outright lie which CNN has refused to denounce or retract.
Further, Davis claimed to have lied to CNN, and that Cohen did not witness Trump being informed of the 2016 meeting.
It is possible, albeit unlikely given the network’s history of deceit, that there were other anonymous sources who confirmed for CNN that Cohen had witnessed Trump being informed of the meeting. The claim itself could still be true.
But CNN has refused to clarify, instead generically informing readers that it stands by its reporting, even when other news outlets, including Jeff Bezos’ Trump-hating blog The Washington Post, have retracted stories supposedly confirming it.
“Re: CNN’s July 27 story about Cohen claiming that Trump knew in advance about the Trump Tower meeting: ‘We stand by our story, and are confident in our reporting of it,'” said “Reliable Sources” host Brian Stelter.

This looks like another classic case of fake news.
More than 40 College and Young Republican Groups Sign Letter Demanding Action on Big Tech Censorship from Senate GOP
Calling out Silicon Valley’s election interference.
Almost 50 youth conservative organizations, ranging from Young to College Republican Chapters and America First student groups, signed onto an open letter on Friday demanding action from Senate Republicans on Big Tech censorship and political authoritarianism.
The young conservatives and nationalists cited the recent suppression of the Hunter Biden email scandal, with platforms such as Twitter implementing an unprecedented level of political censorship to squelch a New York Post report detailing insider foreign business dealings and Joe Biden’s knowledge of them.
Read the letter in its entirely here.
In a statement provided to Big League Politics, College Republicans United at Arizona State University emphasized the need for conservatives to unite against the authoritarian alliance of the Democratic Party and Silicon Valley tech monopolies.
“Democrats use to be the loudest critics of ‘Corporate America’ trampling on the rights of average Americans. These days they are nothing more then corporate apologists who protect crony capitalism.”
Populist Senator Josh Hawley has taken point in the drive to hold Silicon Valley oligarchs to account for their censorship of the American people, but the anti-Big Tech movement has been hamstrung by malcontents within the Senate GOP caucus unwilling to do little more than whine about censorship, while actively undermining a policy solution.
