Former acting Solicitor General Neal Katyal called it devastating whether Trump was venting or if he did act on his frustrations about Cohen.
Asked what it meant that Whitaker "did not deny", the conversations, Nadler said: "Just what I said, he did not deny it, unlike in the hearing room".
Cohen, who is to report to prison in May for campaign finance crimes and previously lying to Congress, said at a public hearing before a U.S. House of Representatives panel last month, "I have never asked for, nor would I accept, a pardon from President Trump". Cohen, in his own tweet, responded, calling the president's assertion "another set of lies".
Costello's remarks came a day after Cohen's lawyers sent a letter to the House Oversight Committee seeking to clarify Cohen's testimony last month that he never sought a pardon from the president.

"I do not see the need for further action - at least at this time".
His lawyers in their new letter say he stands by that statement only so far as it refers to after June 2018, when he left a joint defense agreement with Mr. Trump.

Attorney Robert Costello said in a statement Wednesday that the records would support his claim that Cohen asked him to broach the possibility of a pardon.
