Michael Cohen’s lawyer Lanny Davis said Wednesday on NBC that his client is not expecting, and would not accept, a pardon from President Donald Trump.

“Not only is he not hoping for it, he would not accept a pardon. He considers a pardon from somebody who has acted so corruptly as President to be something he would never accept,” Davis said.

On Tuesday, Cohen pleaded guilty to eight counts after reaching an agreement with federal prosecutors from the Southern District of New York.
