Trump Claims Cohen “Directly Asked” Him For Pardon

CNBC reports:

President Donald Trump on Friday claimed that his former personal lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen last year “directly asked me for a pardon.” Cohen’s legal adviser Lanny Davis had no immediate comment on the president’s allegation.

The White House had no immediate comment. Last week, Cohen testified at length under oath before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee about Trump. “I have never asked for, nor would I accept, a pardon from President Trump,” Cohen told the committee.
