"There's no transcript [of the meeting], and there will be no transcript", said a legal counsel for Georgia Rep.
Nadler did not get into the specifics of what Whitaker said when he met with Nadler and the top Republican on the panel, Georgia Rep. Doug Collins. Committee Republicans had no say in determining ground rules for the second meeting.
During his testimony, Cohen told the committee: "I have never asked for, nor would I accept, a pardon from President Trump".
"I just spoke to Rudy Giuliani and told him I was on your team", Costello wrote in the first of two emails. "To imply it would imply anything else besides that is really an overreach", Collins said.
Collins said that Whitaker suggested the conversations about district attorneys were normal personnel issues, and to characterize those comments otherwise were 'an overreach and a stretch.' Collins added that Whitaker said he hadn't had any conversations with officials in the Southern District of NY.
Collins said he heard Whitaker's comments very differently and maintained that Whitaker said he 'had not talked with the president about Mr. Cohen at all'.
It was revealed Wednesday that former acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker conveniently forgot many of his conversations with President Donald Trump during a Congressional hearing.
Cohen testified before the Oversight panel on February 27 to publicly tell his side of the story.
As AG, Whitaker declined to recuse himself from overseeing the probe, despite DOJ ethics experts suggesting that he should. "It wasn't long after the raid and the president felt bad for him".

Pelosi is right: Dems can't impeach Trump. She should explain that honestly
I think it's one of the few smart things Democrats have done this year", Republican strategist Brian Darling told The Epoch Times. Numerous stories focused on insults the Speaker threw at President Trump during her interview with the Washington Post magazine .
"He would not say no", Nadler said when pressed further.
Nadler said he wasn't sure what the next steps would be after hearing from Whitaker.
Lanny Davis, another Cohen lawyer, said later on Wednesday that "Mr. Cohen's testimony was truthful".
Cohen pleaded guilty previous year to circumventing campaign finance laws when he paid pornographic actress Stormy Daniels $130,000 in hush money before the 2016 election so that the story wouldn't derail Trump's campaign.
Former acting Solicitor General Neal Katyal called it devastating whether Trump was venting or if he did act on his frustrations about Cohen.
Trump initially denied any knowledge of those payments and reimbursements.
"In retrospect, while the sentence could have been clearer regarding the time frames, the sentence is true, and Mr. Cohen stands by his statement", wrote Michael Monico, Cohen's attorney, in a letter to House Oversight Chairman Elijah Cummings that was obtained by CNN.
The aides said that Whitaker denied interfering in the case or speaking with Southern District prosecutors, saying that he merely discussed his concerns with his own staff.
