Legal counsel for former Trump attorney Michael Cohen have urged him to postpone his testimony in light of threats from the president.
Cohen was set to testify publicly before Congress on February 7, and it was recently made clear that the hearing could not cover any topics related to the ongoing investigation under Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
“Due to ongoing threats against his family from President Trump and Mr. Giuliani, as recently as this weekend, as well as Mr. Cohen’s continued cooperation with ongoing investigations, by advice of counsel, Mr. Cohen’s appearance will be postponed to a later date. Mr. Cohen wishes to thank Chairman Cummings for allowing him to appear before the House Oversight Committee and looks forward to testifying at the appropriate time. This is a time where Mr. Cohen had to put his family and their safety first.” — Lanny Davis
Rudy Giuliani, the president’s current legal counsel. made the media rounds over the weekend and repeatedly criticized Cohen, even going so far as to call him a “serial liar.”
