President Trump says Michael Cohen lied about not seeking a pardon

His lawyers totally contradicted him. He lied! Additionally, he directly asked me for a pardon.

"From what I heard, I believe that there will still be more indictments to come", he said.

"Lanny Davis, Cohen's attorney, told CNN that Cohen himself authored the false line in his 2017 testimony to Congress about the Trump Tower Moscow project timeline".

Weisselberg, a NY native, has also worked as a treasurer for Trump Foundation, which the NY attorney general sued a year ago, alleging violations of campaign finance law, self-dealing and illegal coordination.

Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort was sentenced Thursday to almost four years in prison for tax and bank fraud related to his work advising Ukrainian politicians. 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.

The move comes after Michael Cohen's lawyer confirmed that his client's former attorney had sounded out Trump's legal team about the possibility of a pardon, which had been "dangled" before his client.

Trump has said Cohen "did bad things unrelated to Trump" and "is lying in order to reduce his prison time".

He did not say what the new documents related to and declined to comment on the substance of Cohen's testimony.

She said during a visit to his Atlanta home, they engaged in sex and she says that's when she contracted the incurable disease. These charges involve four women, three of whom would have been minors (younger than 16) at the time of the alleged crimes.

Special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into allegations into Russian collusion is also probing whether the president sought to obstruct investigations and prevent former aides from being brought to justice.

Trump's claim will inevitably cause GOP lawmakers to press Democratic leaders to look into whether Cohen again committed perjury as they and he White House continue efforts to discredit Cohen and the opposition party's probes of Trump world.

Specifically, Trump claimed that Cohen "directly asked me for a pardon".

Latest appointee to President Donald Trump's legal team and former Mayor of New York City Rudy Giuliani attends the Conference on Iran on May 5, 2018, in Washington, D.C. Giuliani, who said "truth isn't truth", asked if Democrats "care about the truth".

Trump did not immediately provide evidence of Cohen's attempt to secure a pardon or reveal when the alleged request was made. During last week's public testimony, he called Trump a con man, a cheat and a racist.

"His [Cohen's] lawyer said that they went to my lawyers and asked for pardons", Trump said.

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

The case is Cohen v Trump Organization LLC, New York State Supreme Court, New York County, No. 651377/2019.
