Cohen asked about forgiveness from Trump, his lawyer says contradictory testimony to Congress

A lawyer representing former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen said on Wednesday that Cohen initiated a lawyer last year to ask for a possible forgiveness from President Trump. The Enlightenment of Lanny Davis, reported by the Wall Street Journal, opposed Cohen's testimony last week on Capitol Hill, where Cohen told House Oversight and Reform Committee members: "I have never asked for or do not accept, a forgiveness from Mr Trump. " According to the journal Davis, Cohen said "directed his lawyer" to ask for a possible forgiveness. The magazine adds that it previously reported that Stephen Ryan, a former lawyer for Cohen, discussed a forgiveness with President Trump's lawyers during the weeks following FBI agents raped Coh's home, office, and hotel rooms.

A lawyer representing former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen said on Wednesday that Cohen initiated a lawyer last year to ask for a possible forgiveness from President Trump.

The Enlightenment of Lanny Davis, reported by the Wall Street Journal, opposed Cohen’s testimony last week on Capitol Hill, where Cohen told House Oversight and Reform Committee members: “I have never asked for or do not accept, a forgiveness from Mr Trump. “

According to the journal Davis, Cohen said “directed his lawyer” to ask for a possible forgiveness. The magazine adds that it previously reported that Stephen Ryan, a former lawyer for Cohen, discussed a forgiveness with President Trump’s lawyers during the weeks following FBI agents raped Coh’s home, office, and hotel rooms.

MICHAEL COHEN HEARING: MOST EXPLOSIVE MOMENTS FROM PREVIOUS TRUMP LAWYER’S HILL APPEARANCE

Wednesday’s comments from Davis are highlighted at least the second time the lawyer has acknowledged information as opposed to what Cohen has said at Capitol Hill.

Last week, Davis said in a statement that Cohen was wondering about taking a job at the White House, despite Cohen telling panel members that he hadn’t. But Davis stopped short to say that Cohen was not truthful in his testimony.

“If this is what Mr. Trump and his followers are focusing on &#821

1; and not a single repetition of something that Cohen claims in his long day of testimony under oath to the Supervisory Committee – it says a lot,” Davis said Friday. “This is the classic Trump tactic that we have seen for a long time – deviates and deviates rather than confront the facts and tell the truth.”

As for the hunt for forgiveness, sources for the journal told three Trump lawyers – Rudy Giuliani, Jay Sekulow and Joanna Hendon – rejected the idea of ​​a forgiveness for Cohen, but Giuliani did not dismiss the idea of ​​forgiveness at a later date.

Giuliani said earlier this week that he is offering a regular answer when lawyers ask for a presidential feeling for their client:

“I always give the same answer, which is,” the president will not consider any forgiveness at this time, and nobody should think he is “,” Giuliani told the newspaper.

But he added that he replies: “Whatever happens in the future, it’s [the president’s] prerogative.”

Giuliani would not confirm if Cohen’s lawyers were among those he has with me
