Cohen gives Congress emails he says tells Trump legal team dangled a pardon after FBI raid

trump pardon

TL;DR

While not mentioning a pardon specifically Costello went on to tell Cohen he should sleep well tonight because you have friends in high places. Cohen later said through his lawyer that he did ask about it but didnt request a pardon from Trump personally. But now CNN reports that Cohen has evidence of Trump obstructing justice by dangling a pardon. If not even Barr can defend the dangling of a pardon its safe to say that legal opinion will be unanimous. The weakness in the evidence here is that the communication went through Costello not Trump
