Michael Cohen Asked His Lawyer to Inquire About a Pardon Last Year

By Allan Lengel

Michael Cohen, the former lawyer for President Donald Trump, asked one of his attorneys last summer to inquire about getting a presidential pardon,  Cohen’s attorney and spokesman Lanny Davis tells ABC News.

 Cohen asked his now former attorney Stephen Ryan to meet with Rudy Giuliani about the possibility of a pardon shortly after an FBI raid on his home and offices, Davis tells the network.

Davis said Cohen was part of a joint defense agreement with the president and many of his advisers a the time, but he later bowed out of the agreement and “tell the truth.”
