Testifying on February 27 before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, Cohen called Trump a "con man" and "cheat", but offered no direct evidence that Trump or his campaign colluded with Moscow in the 2016 election. Instead, President Donald Trump's former lawyer will be on Capitol Hill talking about the crimes he is now accusing Trump of committing.

Michael Cohen's lawyer Lanny Davis told two news outlets on Wednesday that the former Trump attorney reached out for a pardon through a representative a year ago, contradicting Cohen's own testimony. Once he exited that pact, Cohen dropped interest in being pardoned by Trump, David claims.
Trump and Giuliani have repeatedly questioned Cohen's credibility.
Cohen's lawsuit also renews an allegation that's dogged Trump for much of his career: He has a penchant for cheating people out of money he had promised them.
"Over the last several years, President Trump has evaded accountability for his near-daily attacks on our basic legal, ethical, and constitutional rules and norms", House Judiciary Committee chairman Jerry Nadler said.
Cohen said in his open testimony before the House that he "never" asked for a pardon.
These include Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of Russian influence in the 2016 United States presidential election, as well as multiple congressional probes. "That continues to be the case", Davis said Wednesday.
Davis did not immediately respond Thursday to text messages and emails seeking additional information.
