Maybe they are trying to tell Cohen what to say before he says something worse.
MAYBE? "Let's pardon Scooter Libby for some reason?"
That said, Cohen pled the 5th. New York's Attorney General has recorded conversations.
Just last night my wife and I were discussing the Tyuratam explosion in relation to something within her professional sphere. I pointed out that we had satellite photos of a rocket on a pad, and then a few months later we had satellite photos of no rocket and no pad, but it was decades before we knew how bad it was. We didn't know about devil's venom or 100 dead or any of that shit. It was just "missile-notmissile" and a bunch of rumors.
I feel that what we've seen of this whole White Rabbit adventure is missile/notmissile and that ten, fifteen years from now we'll see the suppressed newsreels with the burning bodies.
