Cohen fires new shot at Trump with suit for millions in fees

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

President Donald Trump's personal attorney Michael Cohen met with House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., several times before testifying before the panel last week, Fox News reports.

"The defense now to Cohen saying under oath he NEVER asked for a pardon is a familiar one; What's The Meaning of Never". "I believe that all of the members were satisfied with the statements and the responses that I gave to them", he said.

Russian Federation had denied interfering in the 2016 election. Cohen acknowledged in his guilty plea a year ago that he misled lawmakers by saying he had abandoned the project in January 2016 when he actually continued pursuing it for months after that as Trump campaigned for the presidency.

President Donald Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani, who infamously defended his client by declaring on national TV that "truth isn't truth", on Thursday asked if House Democrats "care about the truth" while arguing that Trump's former legal fixer Michael Cohen should be prosecuted for perjury.

Cohen's lawyer, Lanny Davis, has since said his client was open to "dangling" a pardon to the president and his personal legal team when he was still in a joint defense agreement with Trump.

Trump has said Cohen "did bad things unrelated to Trump" and "is lying in order to reduce his prison time".

In a public hearing before a House hearing last week, Cohen also attacked Trump's character, calling him a con man and a racist and voicing deep regret for working by his side for more than a decade.

Trump and Giuliani have repeatedly questioned Cohen's credibility.

Specifically, Trump claimed that Cohen "directly asked me for a pardon".

On Monday, the Democratic-controlled House Judiciary Committee launched a sweeping new investigation into Trump's inner circle, demanding documents from dozens of individuals including the president's sons Don Jr. and Eric and son-in-law Jared Kushner. That continues to be the case.

The lawsuit filed Thursday in NY state court claims the Trump Organization stopped paying Cohen's mounting legal fees after he began cooperating with federal prosecutors. But Trump didn't simply say it was a lie, he identified himself as a "key witness" in a "beyond ill-advised" manner according to CNN legal analyst, attorney and impeachment expert Ross Garber.

The lawsuit says the group should pay the roughly $1.9m Cohen has been ordered to pay as part of his criminal sentence for work done "at the behest of the Trump Organization".

The lawsuit indicates that Cohen had been represented by McDermott Will & Emery in connection with investigations by Congress and special counsel Robert Mueller.
