Cohen came under renewed scrutiny after telling Congress that he never sought a pardon from the president. "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'".

Michael Cohen, the former personal attorney of U.S. President Donald Trump, departs with his attorney and advisor Lanny Davis after testifying before a closed House Intelligence Committee hearing on Capitol Hill in Washington, U.S., March 6, 2019.
Mr. Cohen testified that Mr. Trump never ordered him to lie when they met and just repeated his talking points on no-Russia-collusion. It also followed a Friday tweet by the president accusing him of committing perjury in sworn testimony last week before the House Intelligence Committee. Cohen is expected to begin serving a three-year sentence on those charges, and an additional count that he lied to Congress, in federal prison in May.
The Wall Street Journalreported Monday that Cohen's former lawyer, Stephen Ryan, discussed the possibility of a pardon for Cohen with Trump's attorneys after the FBI's raid on Cohen.

He has also said his campaign did not collude with Moscow. The attorneys said they could join his legal team in order to be a conduit to Trump's lawyers, the person said.

"It depends on your employer and what the agreement happens to be, but if Michael Cohen's allegations are true and that he did enter into an agreement with the Trump Organization, then his legal bills certainly up through the search warrant process, and those were very significant legal bills we're told, should be paid by in fact the Trump Organization".
