Lawmakers are privately investigating whether Michael Cohen was involved in any discussions about possible pardons, The Washington Post reports. The investigation could be a new angle into whether anyone sought to obstruct justice, people familiar with the matter told the Post. Cohen, President Trump’s former personal lawyer, has said publicly that he never asked for a pardon from Trump, and was never offered one. But people familiar with the matter said that is not the end of the story. Lawmakers reportedly questioned Cohen during private testimony this week on whether he had any discussions about a possible pardon, and if so, when and with whom those conversations took place. If such pardon talks took place they would suggest an effort to dissuade Cohen from cooperating with law enforcement. Cohen is set to return to the House Intelligence Committee for further testimony on Wednesday.
