64 percent of U.S. voters believe Trump committed a crime before he became president, poll shows

Michael Cohen "directed his attorney" to discuss a pardon from Donald Trump, a lawyer for the president's former right-hand man admitted yesterday, contradicting his sworn testimony to Congress.

Weisselberg's name also emerged past 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.

The Wall Street Journal quoted Giuliani saying that he tells lawyers who ask for pardons that "whatever happens in the future, that is his prerogative".

"You're getting in trouble because you work for me, you're getting reimbursed", Giuliani said. Some have also questioned the veracity of his testimony, suggesting he falsely claimed to have never sought employment in the Trump White House. But the evidence so far shows that a broad range of Trump associates had Russia-related contacts during the 2016 presidential campaign and transition period, and several lied about the communications. He also accused the president of committing crimes including campaign finance violations and potential tax fraud.

He did not say what the new documents related to and declined to comment on the substance of Cohen's testimony.

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. That continues to be the case.

In June, he said the president might pardon Manafort and others who were ensnared in the Russian Federation investigation if he believed they were treated "unfairly".

Cohen filed a lawsuit Thursday claiming the Trump Organization broke a promise to pay his legal bills and owes at least $1.9 million to cover the cost of his defense. He acknowledged on MSNBC that Cohen "was certainly looking at the option of a pardon" before he made a decision to come clean and turn on Trump. "These matters included multiple congressional hearings, special counsel Robert S. Mueller III's investigation and others".
