Cohen files lawsuit to recoup legal costs

10 March 2019

The former lawyer and fixer of U.S. President Donald Trump filed a lawsuit Thursday against the Trump Organization for not being paid for "fees and costs" exceeding $1.9 million.

Testifying before Congress last week, Cohen said he'd never asked Trump for a pardon and would never accept one from him.

According to the complaint, Cohen and the Trump Organization entered the July 2017 reimbursement agreement when they were pursuing a "joint defense" to various investigations.

The panel has requested documents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Justice Department relating to possible pardons floated for Cohen, former national security adviser Michael Flynn, as well as former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, according to a report by the Associated Press.

LeBron James is 'no Michael Jordan,' says Skip Bayless
The Lakers, 30-35, are now the 11th seed in the Western Conference and 6.5 games behind the 8th seed LA Clippers. James is now fourth on the list of points leaders, behind only Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Karl Malone and Kobe Bryant.

Cohen said in his open testimony before the House that he "never" asked for a pardon.

Earlier this year, Cohen hired two new Chicago lawyers and parted ways with the attorneys who represented him for months as he cooperated with Mueller and prosecutors in the Southern District of NY. And Vanity Fair's Emily Jane Fox, during an appearance on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" the next morning, stressed that Cohen had an abundance of documents with him-a sight she asserted "must have" been traumatic for Trump and his associates. He lied again! He also badly wanted to work at the White House. The results were heavily skewed on party lines, with most Republicans believing Trump and most Democrats trusting Cohen.

The poll was conducted during the first four days of March, directly after former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen testified to Congress about his dealings with the president.

Giuliani said Thursday he was contacted in May or June about a possible pardon for Cohen.

Davis' statement appears to contradict Cohen's public testimony before the House Oversight Committee last week.

Cohen responded in kind on Twitter, calling Trump's tweet "Just another set of lies".

One particularly damning moment came when, on the topic of Cohen's own campaign finance crime, Rep. Ro Khanna (D-CA) asked, "Are you telling us, Mr. Cohen, that the president directed transactions in conspiracy with Allen Weisselberg and his son Donald Trump Jr.as part of a criminal conspiracy of financial fraud?"

Cohen this week completed meetings with congressional investigators looking into Mr Trump's activities. During last week's public testimony, he called Trump a con man, a cheat and a racist. That continues to be the case.
