Michael Cohen Slams Trump’s Women’s Day Tweet By Bringing Up Stormy Daniels

Donald Trump

"You need to know that Mr. Trump's personal lawyers reviewed, and edited, my statement to Congress about the timing of the Moscow Tower negotiations before I gave it", Mr. Cohen told the House Oversight Committee last month. His lawyers totally contradicted him.

"His lawyers said that they went to my lawyers and asked for pardons", Trump said.

The prospect of a pardon for President Donald Trump's former attorney Michael Cohen was raised a couple of times between Cohen's lawyer and attorneys representing the President, according to multiple sources familiar with the matter.

During his House testimony, Cohen denied that he was hoping Trump would pardon him for his crimes. Instead, President Donald Trump's former lawyer will be on Capitol Hill talking about the crimes he is now accusing Trump of committing.

Cohen pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations tied to the hush-money payments. Cohen is expected to begin serving a three-year sentence on those charges, and an additional count that he lied to Congress, in federal prison in May.

Prior to Michael Cohen's decision to leave the "Joint Defense Group" and tell the truth on July 2, 2018, Michael was open to the ongoing "dangling" of a possible pardon by Trump representatives privately and in the media. Cohen testified to Congress under penalty of perjury that he never asked Trump for a pardon, but his lawyer Lanny Davis later clarified that Cohen did direct his attorneys to discuss the matter with Trump's legal team.

A couple of hours later, Trump issued another tweet that seemed more like something he'd actually say.

"Michael Cohen said under sworn testimony that he never asked for a Pardon".

China blocks canola shipments from Canada's Richardson
There had already been reports last month that Canadian canola shipments to China had been slow to clear customs amid the dispute. The lawyer for a senior executive of Chinese tech giant Huawei arrested in Canada said comments by U.S.


The Trump Organization did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

The president's attorneys were noncommittal during the conversation with Cohen's lawyer, the people said.

In addition, the lawsuit said, the company is obliged to pay the $1.9 million that the court fined Cohen in his plea deal last December.

These include Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of Russian influence in the 2016 USA presidential election, as well as multiple congressional probes.

But since then, Davis said, Cohen has been clear that he wouldn't accept a pardon.

Separately on Thursday, Cohen filed a lawsuit in New York City claiming the Trump Organization broke a promise to pay his legal bills and owes at least $1.9 million to cover the cost of his defense.

Donald Trump Jr. tweeted: "So when he was shut down looking for a pardon, he figured he could save his ass by telling weasel Adam Schiff whatever he wanted to hear?" This is not the first time Cohen testified in regard to Trump; however, unlike in the past, Cohen was not there to protect Trump.
