NY attorney says feds probing his pardon talks with Cohen

  • Michael Cohen President Donald Trump's former lawyer speaks as he departs after testifying before a closed-door session of the House Intelligence Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington. Cohen sues the Tru

"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 said the committee would 'analyze the revelations and see where they lead'.

The U.S. Attorney's Office in Manhattan declined to comment. Stephen Ryan, a former lawyer for Cohen, reportedly discussed the issue with Trump's lawyers after Federal Bureau of Investigation agents raided his client's home, office and a hotel room.

Costello's attempts to reassure Cohen came directly after he spoke with Rudy Giuliani, the attorney representing President Donald Trump.

Nadler indicated to reporters after the meeting Wednesday - which lasted roughly an hour - that Whitaker's follow-up comments did little to allay his concerns that Whitaker misled the full committee during his public testimony in February, when he refused to answer a question from Nadler about whether he and Trump had discussed the case against his former personal lawyer Michael Cohen in the Southern District of NY. "Mr. Whitaker was [also] involved in conversations about the scope of the Southern District of New York's U.S. Attorney Berman's recusal, and whether the Southern District went too far in pursuing the campaign finance case".

Whitaker had been critical of the special counsel in radio interviews from before he worked for the DOJ and replaced Sessions.

Nadler also referred to the Southern District of NY, which is involved in a campaign finance case against Cohen which implicates Mr. Trump.

Rep. Elijah Cummings said Cohen, Mr. Trump's former personal lawyer, has since clarified through his own lawyer that his testimony "could have been clearer".

"I do think there is a problem because Whitaker previously didn't just previously testify in Congress that the president didn't lash out he also testified in response to a question from Rep. [David] Cicilline was - 'Did the White House reach out to you in some way to express dissatisfaction?' Answer: 'No.' So Whitaker didn't have any problem remembering that a month ago, more than a month ago".

Whitaker left the Justice Department several weeks ago, but he's still facing hearings and investigations from his short time at the top.

Trump's team dismissed the possibility of a pardon, according to The Wall Street Journal.

Trump initially denied any knowledge of those payments and reimbursements.

After former acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker's closed-door appearance before the House Judiciary Committee Wednesday, chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) and lawyers present for the Republican committee members gave diametrically different accounts of what Whitaker admitted to.

But a source close to Cohen disputed Costello's version and insisted it was Costello who was pushing his relationship with Giuliani, the network reported.

"That was taken in the context of his job as the acting attorney general where there is discussions in the normal personnel issues".
