This week, Cohen's attorney Lanny Davis said his client had entertained the possibility of a pardon as part of a joint defense agreement Cohen had with Trump after Cohen's office was raided nearly a year ago.
Six months earlier, Cohen pleaded guilty to two campaign finance violations for payments he arranged for two women in exchange for their silence over alleged affairs with Trump.

"Michael Cohen gave sworn testimony".
It is hard to untangle the conflicting narratives given the unreliability of some of the central characters.
The matter is being investigated in Congress following Cohen's public and private testimony before three congressional committees over the past two weeks.
More than 70 percent of voters said a presidential candidate paying money to hide a negative story about themselves during a presidential campaign was unethical, while 40 percent of voters say such an action is both a crime and unethical.
"That continues to be the case", Davis said.
McDougal, a former Playboy playmate, and Clifford, an adult-film star, are two women for whom Cohen has said he arranged hush payments at Trump's direction to hide alleged affairs with Trump.
Congressional investigators, meanwhile, appear to be focusing on presidential powers as a significant line of questioning in their probes.
"Another perjury and more prison", Giuliani said on Twitter on Thursday. He said he "gave anyone and everyone same answer", which was "no, no consideration at this time". "I think the average person is saying 'wait a minute, there's something else going on here'". Whether it's small business owners, contractors or lawyers, when Trump isn't happy he refuses to pay.
Cohen has become a key figure in congressional investigations since turning on his former boss and co-operating with the special counsel.
Trump in December called Cohen a "rat" for cooperating with prosecutors and has said he should go to prison.
"Lanny Davis, Cohen's attorney, told CNN that Cohen himself authored the false line in his 2017 testimony to Congress about the Trump Tower Moscow project timeline". Daniels, whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford, also sued Cohen seeking to invalidate a non-disclosure agreement and claiming he defamed her. Cohen wants the Trump Organization to cover the legal fees related to those lawsuits.
