Former Trump attorney Michael Cohen postponing testimony to Congress - adviser

Trump Reportedly “Furious” Over Giuliani’s Recent Media Flops

A recent spate of Trump attacks arrived after BuzzFeed broke a story late Thursday alleging that Mueller's team had collected evidence that Trump directed Cohen to lie to Congress. Cohen had been Trump's self-described longtime "fixer" and once said he would take a bullet for the NY real estate developer.

A senior Democratic senator has accused President Donald Trump of intimidating witnesses, pointing out that he would be prosecuted if he weren't president. Giuliani also leaves open the possibility that Trump and Cohen might have discussed Cohen's testimony.

Cohen did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the decision to postpone his testimony to the U.S. House of Representatives Oversight Committee. He has been involved in the taxicab business like Cohen himself.

Lanny Davis, a lawyer for Cohen, disclosed the subpoena from the Senate intelligence committee in a one-sentence statement.

Trump's critics had hoped Cohen might, at the very least, offer unflattering revelations about the president. He's only been threatened by the truth. "He's only been threatened by the truth", Trump said.

"We will not let the President's tactics prevent Congress from fulfilling our constitutionally mandated oversight responsibilities", the Democrats said in a statement.

"This is a time where Mr. Cohen had to put his family and their safety first", the statement continued.

"This will not stop us from getting to the truth".

Meek Mill, Jay-Z, 76ers, Nets, Patriots fight for justice reform
For Michael Rubin, the co-owner of the Philadelphia 76ers and the executive chairman of TK Fanatics, Mill's case was eye-opening. Meek, who spoke at the launch, has been heavily involved with prison reform since being released from prison in April 2018.

Norman Eisen, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, said in December that the most striking thing was that there were two statements in proximity. He declined to say if that meant a subpoena.

Michael Cohen had been scheduled to testify before the House Oversight Committee on February 7 but his lawyer said Wednesday that the testimony will be rescheduled.

Chicago attorney Andrew Boutros said he was not sure what to make of it all.

"It's an absolutely shocking violation of norms for the chief executive to suggest a retaliatory investigation against the relative of a witness against him", said Kenneth White, a former federal prosecutor and criminal defense attorney with Brown, White & Osborn LLP.

One thing that is clear is that Cohen has been ordered to report to prison in early March to begin the three-year sentence he received from a federal judge in New York City last month.

While Cohen had no formal role in Trump's presidential campaign, his involvement in a myriad of controversies promised to attract an intense spotlight to his public testimony.

Cohen promised, however, that he would appear before Congress to tell what he knows of Trump's inner circle.

Cohen "is doing it because he's afraid to testify against his father-in-law, because the repercussions for that will be far worse than the repercussions for lying here", Giuliani said Sunday on CNN.
