A possible motive could be to start a war between lion and wolf
But sending an assassin to murder Bran in his comatose state would tend away from this. If Bran awakens and says, "Jaime pushed me from the tower window," that would start such a war right there.
Maybe Varys was indeed the hand behind the Catspaw Assassin, but his intent was to keep peace in the realm. Killing Bran before he could talk would eliminate a possible source of conflict within the Seven Kingdoms.
(Note also that when Varys actually handles that dagger, he does so expertly...)
You have a good point about Bran. But what if he never awoke or didn't remember? (Which he didn't but noone knew he wouldn't). They didn't know who pushed him. Pegging an assasins on the Lannisters' secured the start of the war better.

Why did LF lie to Cat saying he lost it in a bet to Tyrion?
This definitely has him instigating that war. Regardless of how the assasins got there in the 1st place.
