Michael Cohen had choice words for President Donald Trump after his former client hit back at reports this week of Cohen asking for a pardon through a representative last year — contradicting the former Trump fixer’s own testimony.
“Just another set of lies by @POTUS,” Cohen tweeted Friday morning with a nod to #InternationalWomensDay.
Just another set of lies by @POTUS @realdonaldtrump. Mr. President…let me remind you that today is #InternationalWomensDay. You may want use today to apologize for your own #lies and #DirtyDeeds to women like Karen McDougal and Stephanie Clifford.

Minutes before Cohen’s tweet, Trump said that Cohen “lied,” given that he “directly” asked for a pardon the President denied and that Cohen “badly wanted to work at the White House.”
Bad lawyer and fraudster Michael Cohen said under sworn testimony that he never asked for a Pardon. His lawyers totally contradicted him. He lied! Additionally, he directly asked me for a pardon. I said NO. He lied again! He also badly wanted to work at the White House. He lied!

Cohen’s latest jab at Trump comes fresh off of his lawsuit against the Trump Organization in New York state court Thursday, demanding that the President’s companies pay his legal fees for the Mueller probe and other investigations.
