Monico reiterated that denial in his letter to Cummings, saying Cohen never asked Trump for a pardon and that Trump never offered one.
Elijah Cummings in the letter that Cohen, once President Donald Trump's personal attorney, had asked his lawyer to explore the possibility of a pardon before Cohen left a joint-defense agreement and turned against Trump last June.
Monico explained, though, that Cohen's testimony "could have been clearer and more complete".
Two leading House Republicans are ramping up pressure on House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings to refer former Trump attorney Michael Cohen to the Justice Department for allegedly perjuring himself during congressional testimony.
Representatives for Cummings, a Democrat, did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the letter.
Cohen's February 27 declaration that "I have never asked for, nor would I accept, a pardon from President Trump" set off a firestorm that culminated in Trump calling him a liar on Twitter.
Cohen declared under oath on February 27 that 'I have never asked for, nor would I accept, a pardon from President Trump'.
'Bad lawyer and fraudster Michael Cohen said under sworn testimony that he never asked for a Pardon, ' Trump tweeted. "I said NO. He lied again!"
Giuliani had previously said he never offered anyone a pardon on the president's behalf. The Washington Post reported the request was made before Cohen's house, hotel and office were raided by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in April 2018, but The Wall Street Journal reported it took place after the raid occurred.
Nothing ever came of that effort, he said.
"Does dangled mean that he raised it and I mentioned it to Giuliani, and Giuliani said the president is not going to discuss pardons with anybody?"
But Republicans were already calling for an investigation before the discrepancy over the pardon came out. They said Cohen lied when he claimed he did not want a position in the Trump administration and that he did not seek a pardon from his former boss. Cohen, in connection with a separate investigation, also pleaded guilty to tax and bank-related fraud charges and is expected to report to prison in May to serve a three-year sentence.
Mark Meadows claimed in their letter that Cohen lied about six separate topics during sworn testimony before the House Oversight and Reform Committee on February 27.
All three have been charged in special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into possible coordination between Russian Federation and Trump's presidential campaign.
