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

House Republicans Push Elijah Cummings To Refer Michael Cohen To DOJ For Perjury

The Democratic chairman of the House Oversight Committee said Wednesday that he will not attempt to punish Michael Cohen for misleading the committee last month when he claimed he'd never asked President Trump for a pardon.

On Wednesday, Nadler told reporters after his committee questioned Whitaker for two hours behind closed doors that the former acting attorney general "did not deny" that Trump called him to talk about the Cohen case.

As controversy grew over Cohen's pardon remarks, his legal team stressed that he was one of Trump's closest confidants and if he wanted a pardon, he would have just asked Trump himself.

"Unlike in the hearing room, Mr. Whitaker did not deny that the president called him to discuss the Michael Cohen case and personnel decisions in the Southern District", Nadler told reporters after the meeting. "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". Cohen denied that minutes later in a tweet of his own.

Each research team submitted a proposal to NASA stating how and why it wanted to analyze the lunar samples, according to Welten. Also, the lunar water can be used for future moon mission for making fuel or even using it as a shield from solar radiation.


Michael Monico told Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Maryland, in the letter that Cohen, once President Donald Trump's personal attorney, had asked his lawyer to explore the possibility of a pardon before Cohen left a joint-defense agreement and turned against Mr. Trump last June.

"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. The author has made every effort to ensure accuracy of information provided; however, neither Kitco Metals Inc. nor the author can guarantee such accuracy.

News reports said Trump did lash out at Whitaker, but Whitaker said in the hearing that he did not.

The U.S. Attorney's Office in Manhattan declined to comment. Nadler said Whitaker's response about the Cohen case came after he was pressed in the closed-door session about CNN reporting in December that Trump twice vented to Whitaker about federal prosecutors who referenced the President's actions in crimes Cohen pleaded guilty to.

On Wednesday, Republicans on the committee challenged Mr. Cummings to live up to that.

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.

Cohen testified before the Oversight panel on February 27 to publicly tell his side of the story.
