Trump's ex-lawyer Cohen says testimony 'could have been clearer': lawyer

Trump's ex-lawyer Cohen says testimony 'could have been clearer': lawyer

"As I have said in the past, the president has the right to, and that doesn't mean he won't consider it when the investigation is over".

But Cohen brought a bank check to an Oversight Committee hearing in February that shows Trump's signature and is dated February 2017, when Trump was president.

President Donald Trump's ex-lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen got some reassuring advice last April from Rudy Giuliani - that Cohen had "friends in high places" and could "sleep well tonight", CNN reported Wednesday. Cohen, in his own tweet, responded, calling the president's assertion "another set of lies".

Republican aides and the committee's top Democrat relayed that Whitaker said in the meeting that, while acting AG, he had shared concerns with his staff about the Southern District of New York's campaign finance charge against Michael Cohen.

"Our practice on this Committee is to give witnesses an opportunity to clarify their testimony, and that is what Mr. Cohen has done", Cummings said in a statement. "I do not see the need for further action - at least at this time".

Monico argued in the letter that Cohen's statement was written "in the context of Mr. Cohen's decision in June 2018" to leave the joint defense agreement, and not the discussions that occurred about pardons beforehand.

Gunmen kill eight, including five children, in rampage in Brazilian city
The last major school shooting in the country was in 2011, when 12 children were shot dead by a former pupil in Rio de Janeiro . The deadly incident occurred on in the city of Suzano located in the southeastern Brazilian state of Sao Paulo on Wednesday.

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

Nadler said that Whitaker was involved in conversations centered on firing USA district attorneys; the Republican lawyers pooh-poohed them as run-of-the-mill "personnel decisions".

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

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.

Nadler said after the public testimony that his answers were 'unsatisfactory, incomplete or contradicted by other evidence.' In the letter sent to the Justice Department, Nadler said Whitaker didn't offer clear responses about his communications with the White House and was inconsistent about what questions he refused to answer.

Davis complained that Oversight Committee Republicans had never "mentioned the hush money checks signed by President Trump, proving that the president committed a felony as part of the Stormy Daniels illegal hush money scheme" and questioned why Representative Jim Jordan, one of Trump's most avid defenders on the committee, had ignored this. Whitaker denied he had spoken to Mr. Trump about his former attorney, who is now cooperating with the special counsel's office, in testimony last month.
