NY attorney says feds probing his pardon talks with Cohen

The top Democrat and Republican on the House Judiciary Committee disagreed Wednesday over what exactly former acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker told them behind closed doors regarding his conversations with President Donald Trump - and the public may never know for sure what was actually said. Cohen hasn't done so since, Monico said.

Giuliani confirmed to the Associated Press that Costello reached out to him after Cohen's properties were raided previous year.

Former acting Solicitor General Neal Katyal called it devastating whether Trump was venting or if he did act on his frustrations about Cohen.

Congressional investigators appear to be focusing on presidential powers as a significant line of questioning in their probes. He also denied media reports that Trump had lashed out at him after learning that Cohen would plead guilty for lying to Congress about a proposed Trump tower in Moscow.

However, a source who is described as having "knowledge of Cohen's thinking" tells CNN that Cohen "disputes Costello's version of events and insists it was Costello who was pushing his relationship with Giuliani". "He said thank you for opening this back channel of communication and asked me to keep in touch".

"Does dangled mean that he raised it and I mentioned it to Giuliani, and Giuliani said the president is not going to discuss pardons with anybody?" He also badly wanted to work at the White House.

Davis confirmed to CBS News that in the months after and Federal Bureau of Investigation raid on their client's office and home, Cohen was open to a pardon from Mr. Trump. He said he understands that Cohen may have answered more detailed questions on the topic in separate, closed-door testimony before the House intelligence committee the next day. "You only have to tell me once, Rudy".

Another Cohen lawyer, Lanny Davis, and Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani went back and forth in dueling interviews and tweets last week over the pardon issue.

Mark Meadows claimed in their letter that Cohen lied about six separate topics during sworn testimony before the House Oversight and Reform Committee on February 27. "Is that clear enough?"

"One, unlike in the hearing room, Mr. Whitaker did not deny that the president called him to discuss Michael Cohen, the Michael Cohen case, and personnel decisions in the southern district".

In his public hearing, Whitaker denied that Trump had lashed out at him, and he would not say anything about his conversations with Trump about Cohen or the Southern District of NY.

Attorney Robert Costello said in a statement Wednesday that the records would support his claim that Cohen asked him to broach the possibility of a pardon.

Giuliani said last Thursday he was contacted in May or June about a possible pardon for Cohen.
