Trump Claims He Said No To Michael Cohen Pardon Request

Trump Claims He Said No To Michael Cohen Pardon Request

The House Judiciary Committee, which is conducting a probe into possible obstruction of justice, corruption and abuse of power, sent letters to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Justice Department and others for documents related to possible pardons for Cohen, former national security adviser Michael Flynn and former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.

"The Trump Organization doesn't owe Michael Cohen one penny of legal fees", he said.

Referring to Mr. Trump's negative job-approval rating, with 55 percent disapproving of his performance and just 38 percent giving him good marks, Quinnipiac Assistant Director of Polling Tom Malloy summed up the overall results this way: "Cloudy and 38". I said NO. He lied again!

"My answer was the president is not going to consider or give any pardons now", Giuliani said in an interview.

Sekulow has denied that there were any edits to Cohen's testimony by Trump attorneys.

The Michael Cohen saga, especially of late, has been an interesting one to watch.

The sole witness at the hearings was Michael Cohen, a convicted perjurer and Mr. Trump's former lawyer.

"Can President Trump survive all this?"

Did he ask for a pardon from Trump?

Trump tweeted his claim after days of swirling questions about Cohen over the issue of pardons. He told lawmakers, "I have never asked for, nor would I accept, a pardon from Mr. Trump". His representative, Lanny Davis, has repeatedly had to walk back and amend statements about what Cohen knew and when. Those details differ from Cohen's testimony.

It's a "he said, he said" where the "he" - no matter who he is - has a credibility problem. Cohen's legal team argued that his statement was correct because Cohen never asked the president himself for a pardon. However, it hasn't stopped Democrats and the House Committees from requesting documents and more regarding President Trump and his associates.

"That continues to be the case", Davis said. "And his statement at the Oversight Hearing was true - and consistent with his post joint defense agreement commitment to tell the truth", Davis said in a statement to CBS. But there are no plans to do so; that's the answer that Jay and I and the president settled on.

The Senate intelligence committee is interested in re-interviewing Donald Trump Jr. and other witnesses after Cohen spoke to the committee last week, a person familiar with the probe said. Eric wondered on Twitter.

Cohen, in his lawsuit, notes that the Trump Organization continued to pay his legal expenses "through at least May of 2018" but alleges that in June 2018, the company quit paying them "without notice or justification".

An aide to Mr. Cuomo told the New York Times that the WFP was "spreading lies" about him being behind the resolution.

What the judge said before sentencing Manafort to almost four years in prison on Thursday was that he was not before the court on any allegations of collusion with Russian Federation to influence the 2016 presidential election. "I will protect the integrity of our committee".
