Lawyer Told Cohen 'Sleep Well Tonight' After Talking to Giuliani

Lawyer Told Cohen 'Sleep Well Tonight' After Talking to Giuliani

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.

Collins said he heard Whitaker's comments very differently and maintained that Whitaker said he 'had not talked with the president about Mr. Cohen at all'.

Monico claimed that Cohen was referring to his interactions with Trump's legal team after he had made a decision to exit a joint defense agreement he had with Trump's lawyers.

In a statement to lawmakers on Tuesday, Cohen's legal team sought to clarify his recent testimony amid questions over whether Cohen sought, or Trump offered, a pardon to the man who once declared he would take a bullet for the Republican president but later flipped to cooperate with federal prosecutors.

One thing that Nadler said he had questions about was whether Trump had "lashed out" at Whitaker after Cohen, Trump's former personal lawyer, pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations and lying to Congress. Cohen, in his own tweet, responded, calling the president's assertion "another set of lies".

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.

"Our practice on this committee is to give witnesses an opportunity to clarify their testimony, and that is what Mr. Cohen has done", Mr. Cummings said.

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.

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.

His lawyers in their new letter say he stands by that statement only so far as it refers to after June 2018, when he left a joint defense agreement with Mr. Trump.

"I just spoke to Rudy Giuliani and told him I was on your team", Costello wrote in the first of two emails.

"While he was acting attorney general, Mr. Whitaker was directly involved in conversations about whether to fire one or more US attorneys", Nadler continued.

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

Cohen now says he was only referring to a specific period of time in his testimony, according to a letter from his lawyer. That initial document did not include a reference to Cohen seeking a pardon from Trump, but it included six other references to times the pair believed Cohen committed perjury.
