Michael Cohen sues Trump Organization over legal fees

Cohen told Congress last week that he had never asked for and would not accept a pardon from Trump.

Calling Cohen a "bad lawyer and fraudster", Trump said, "His lawyers totally contradicted him".

Trump claimed on Twitter on Friday that Cohen asked him directly for a pardon, but did not say when the request was made or provide any evidence. He also badly wanted to work at the White House.

Cohen has become a key figure in congressional investigations after turning on his former boss and co-operating with special counsel Robert Mueller's probe. Ohio Republican Rep. Mike Turner has formally asked Cohen's legal team exactly what the topics of interest were. 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.

The source said the claim that the Trump Tower Moscow deal was over in January was in the draft from Cohen's initial writing and remained.

Weisselberg's name also emerged previous year when CNN obtained and published audio of a 2016 conversation between Mr. Trump and Cohen in which the two discuss a payment to a former Playboy model.

There is nothing inherently improper about a subject in a criminal investigation seeking a pardon from a president given the president's wide latitude in granting them.

Cohen's attorney at the time was Stephen Ryan, who was "working alongside" Trump's legal team to review whether documents seized in the Federal Bureau of Investigation raids were subject to attorney-client privilege, the Journal reported.

"These questions are important for the public to understand whether or not they were watching witness testimony, a public hearing, or well-rehearsed theater", he wrote. During last week's public testimony, he called Trump a con man, a cheat and a racist. "Lanny Davis coordinated and choreographed this whole thing", Jordan said.

The organisation reaffirmed its payment obligations in December 2017 after Cohen complained to Mr Trump's adult sons Donald jr and Eric, who both worked there, about "repeated delays", according to the complaint.

Cohen's jab at the president came one day after he filed a breach-of-contract lawsuit against the Trump Organization in New York State Supreme Court in Manhattan that seeks to cover his mounting legal bills.

Trump, threatened by a now-disloyal former employee, has sought to denigrate Cohen to his almost 59 million Twitter followers by raising questions about his family members and accusing him of rampant lying.

This follows last week's hearing when Cohen alleged that Trump played a role in hush money payments to women that may have violated campaign finance laws.
