Update: Lanny Davis'
Retirement Fund "Michael Cohen Truth Fund" GoFundMe has topped $100k in its first 19 hours.
We suspect these audience members were not among those donating...
During an interview on Megyn Kelly Today, the lawyer begged viewers to give money to Cohen so that he can “continue to tell the truth.”
“Could I take one opportunity to remind everyone that Michael Cohen has suffered a tragic and difficult experience with his family,” Davis said. “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 he can continue to tell the truth.”
As the following clip shows, the audience was not impressed by his plea for cash, booing and laughing and even raising a smile from Megyn Kelly: “I don’t know if they’re ready to donate, Lanny."

Of course, Davis had the last slimey word...“I would say the reaction of your audience may be they are not as interested in getting the truth out about Donald Trump as many other people in the country.”

With all the 'slam-dunk' evidence that he is proclaiming to have, some might wonder why Michael Cohen's lawyer, longtime Clinton friend and Bill Clinton's special counsel, Lanny Davis is launching a GoFundMe page so he can get paid?
Davis announced the GoFundMe campaign in an interview on MSNBC's Morning Joe this morning.
"In order to get Michael to be able to help, we need help on this fund, MichaelCohenTruthFund.com, we ask everybody to help Michael Cohen tell the truth about Donald Trump."
On July 2, 2018, Michael Cohen declared his independence from Donald Trump and his commitment to tell the truth.
On August 21, Michael Cohen made the decision to take legal responsibility and to continue his commitment to tell the truth.
Michael decided to put his family and his country first. Now Michael needs your financial help -- to pay his legal fees.
The Michael Cohen Truth Fund is a transparent trust account, with all donations going to help Michael Cohen and his family as he goes forward on his journey to tell the truth about Donald Trump.
With a $500,000 goal, we are sure Mr. Davis - who created the page - will be handsomely rewarded for his truth-seeking efforts.
