Davis' revelation was widely seen as the latest sign that Cohen, who worked as a NY lawyer and fixer for Donald Trump, could be seeking a deal to cooperate against Trump in the Russian Federation probe.
Additionally, Burck represents multiple people from the White House counsel's office, so the President's legal team believes they have a good handle on whatever narrative came from those testimonies.
Watergate figure John Dean warned Monday that White House Counsel Don McGahn's cooperation with special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation represents a "real problem" for President Donald Trump. A deeper debrief might have prevented the White House from being surprised by some details that later emerged in news reports, the person said. But according to another source familiar with the matter, McGahn's attorney did not give the President's lawyers a full accounting of what was said to the special counsel and it was not requested. "Mueller got a major break (and witness) w/ McGahn!"
"The meeting was originally for the goal of getting information about Clinton", he said, adding that the Trump team didn't know that Natalia Veselnitskaya was Russian - even though emails later released by Trump Jr. show that she had been described as a "Russian government attorney". "So this is pretty important testimony, and it's taken Trump 48 hours nearly to understand what's going on here".
Trump's lawyer, former NY mayor Rudy Giuliani, said he had not debriefed McGahn on his testimony but that the former head of the president's legal team, John Dowd, had told him the White House counsel was "a strong witness for the president".
According to the Times' Saturday report, McGahn's decision to cooperate was partly due to the fact that the President's initial legal team had chose to fully cooperate with Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, believing their client had nothing to hide and that they could bring a quick end to the probe. Former senior adviser Steve Bannon agreed to voluntary interviews that lasted 20 hours. "It's bad legal advice, bad lawyering, and this is the result of it".

Khan's only challenger could be Shahbaz Sharif, but his Pakistan Muslim League party won only 92 seats in last month's elections. "Everything depends on Indian government now", Sidhu had said after exiting the Pakistan High Commission on Agust 13.
"I could run it if I want". They believed Trump's lawyers should have claimed attorney-client privilege for McGahn.
"Dean fired back, "@realDonaldTrump (I still have trouble using the title Mr. President for someone installed by Putin), I doubt you have ANY IDEA what McGahn has told Mueller.
They agreed to turn over thousands of responsive records and provide staff for voluntary interviews, rather than spend months battling over grand jury testimony and records.
"We protected the president", he added.
Trump also appeared to refer to U.S. Customs and Border Protection, or CBP, as CBC during Monday's event.
"What Ty Cobb and John Dowd did was very calculated", Sekulow said, "with the ultimate goal of being as transparent as possible". He has also publicly expressed increasing ire toward the probe and begun directly attacking Mueller and his team on Twitter. "They are a National Disgrace!"
