Attorney says Cohen can ‘fill in the bulk’ of Mueller report redactions

Lanny Davis, the attorney for Michael Cohen, said Thursday that Cohen “can fill in the bulk of the redactions” in special counsel Robert Mueller’s report, which is set to be released on Thursday.

Davis added that Cohen, President Trump’s former longtime lawyer, “has 7 days, 70 hours, + 100 pages of what” Mueller’s team knows.

{mosads}”As the #Country waits for the #MuellerReport, know this … it does not matter how #Barr #RedactedMuellerReport. @MichaelCohen212 has 7 days, 70 hours, + 100 pages of what #TeamMueller knows and can fill in the bulk of the redactions. Nice try Mr. @POTUS. #Truth We will tell it all,” Davis wrote in a tweet.

Cohen pleaded guilty to lying to Congress in Mueller’s investigation and cooperated with the Mueller team, which conducted a 22-month-long investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible obstruction of justice by Trump.

Mueller’s report is expected to be released Thursday around 11 a.m. following a press conference by Attorney General William Barr scheduled for 9:30 a.m.

The Washington Post reported Wednesday evening that the report will be “lightly redacted.”

People familiar with the matter reportedly told the outlet that Mueller’s report will show that the special counsel could not reach a conclusion on whether Trump obstructed justice because it was too difficult to determine the president’s intent. According to the Post, Mueller determined that some of Trump’s actions could be interpreted innocently.

The report is expected to be more than 400 pages long and will detail evidence collected during Mueller’s probe, including an analysis of tweets, “private threats” and other reported episodes at the center of Mueller’s investigation, according to the paper.
