"You need to know that Mr. Trump's personal lawyers reviewed, and edited, my statement to Congress about the timing of the Moscow Tower negotiations before I gave it", Mr. Cohen told the House Oversight Committee last month.
McDougal, a former Playboy playmate, and Clifford, an adult-film star, are two women for whom Cohen has said he arranged hush payments at Trump's direction to hide alleged affairs with Trump.
"The defense now to Cohen saying under oath he NEVER asked for a pardon is a familiar one; What's The Meaning of Never", Giuliani tweeted. "He told our staff, 'I planned this hearing, I picked this committee, I had to persuade Michael Cohen to do it.' Maybe most importantly he said 'I had to persuade chairman Cummings to do it'".
Trump has aggressively pushed back on the House investigations following Cohen's testimony, charging that "the witch hunt continues" and Democrats have effectively "started the campaign".
Weisselberg, a NY native, has also worked as a treasurer for Trump Foundation, which the NY attorney general sued a year ago, alleging violations of campaign finance law, self-dealing and illegal coordination.
The 52-year-old will begin a three-year prison sentence in May for the campaign finance violation of paying hush money to one of Mr Trump's alleged mistresses, as well as convictions for tax evasion and lying to Congress.
Cohen made brief remarks to reporters following his testimony.
Will Nintendo's new cardboard VR kit bring virtual reality to the masses?
Let me pre-burst any bubbles and clarify that these kits are not meant to convert Switch into a fully featured VR system. The kits will support the Switch being used for the screens, and the Joy-Con will be used for tracking.
Trump, in turn, has said Cohen "did bad things unrelated to Trump" and "is lying in order to reduce his prison time".
"Michael Cohen said under sworn testimony that he never asked for a Pardon".
Cohen, reached by HuffPost in an email on Thursday, referred questions to Davis' office, which did not immediately respond to requests for additional comment. "These matters included multiple congressional hearings, special counsel Robert S. Mueller III's investigation and others".
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.
The lawsuit claims the Trump Organization stopped paying Cohen for litigation expenses in June 2018 - roughly one month after Cohen began cooperating with special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into allegations of collusion between Trump's 2016 presidential campaign and Russian Federation.
He followed up that public House Oversight appearance with the first part of his closed-door House Intelligence interview the following day, where Schiff said the committee was able to "drill down" certain issues in even more detail. He said Cohen "directed his attorney" to explore a pardon.
