Washington (CNN)An attorney who said he was speaking with President Donald Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani reassured Michael Cohen in an April 2018 email that Cohen could "sleep well tonight" because he had "friends in high places," according to a copy of an email obtained by CNN.

Two emails -- both dated April 21, 2018, and among documents provided to Congress by the President's former attorney and fixer -- do not specifically mention a pardon. Cohen, in his closed-door congressional testimony, has provided these emails in an effort to corroborate his claim that a pardon was dangled before he decided to cooperate with federal prosecutors, according to sources familiar with his testimony.

but, of course , Trump's lawyers deny it all and , once again, tell us we shouldn't believe what we see with our own eyes. They're claiming Cohen is the one that brought up pardons and that Trump said he wasn't thinking about it. Then, what does "sleep well" "friends in high places" mean?
