Trump claims Cohen 'directly' asked for a pardon

Earlier this year, Cohen hired two new Chicago lawyers and parted ways with the attorneys who represented him for months as he cooperated with Mueller and prosecutors in the Southern District of NY.

"Now they got to do something else because they put all their eggs in the Michael Cohen basket and he came in here and lied again", Jordan said. Some have also questioned the veracity of his testimony, suggesting he falsely claimed to have never sought employment in the Trump White House.

"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".

Mr. Cohen testified that Mr. Trump never ordered him to lie when they met and just repeated his talking points on no-Russia-collusion.

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.

Cohen says he is owed at least $1.9 million in unpaid fees and costs and another $1.9 million for court-ordered fines, forfeitures and restitution stemming from his August guilty plea to campaign finance violations, tax evasion and bank fraud. Cohen was scheduled to report to federal prison on March 6 but a judge postponed the sentence to begin in May so that Cohen would have more time to arrange testimony as well as recover from shoulder surgery.

Davis said in a statement that "Michael was open to the ongoing "dangling" of a possible pardon by Trump representatives privately and in the media".

A couple of hours later, Trump issued another tweet that seemed more like something he'd actually say. House Oversight Chairman Elijah Cummings signaled after Cohen's public testimony that he wanted to interview Trump's eldest son Donald Trump Jr. and Trump Organization chief financial officer Allen Weisselberg, among others. He acknowledged on MSNBC that Cohen "was certainly looking at the option of a pardon" before he made a decision to come clean and turn on Trump.

The lawsuit said that as part of his work for Trump, the company agreed to indemnify him for his company-related work. "Will you? Under oath to Mueller or Congress?" he tweeted, referring to special counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible co-ordination with the Trump campaign.

When the Trump Organization failed to pay a $1 million bill to Cohen's lawyers - the firm McDermott Will & Emery - they quit representing him, the lawsuit says. "That continues to be the case", Davis said Wednesday.
