On Thursday, The Senate Intelligence Committee issued a subpoena to Michael Cohen to appear before the panel.
According to Fox News, The committee’s decision to subpoena Cohen comes after Davis announced on Wednesday that a public hearing before the House Oversight Committee, slated for Feb. 7, would be postponed due to alleged threats from the president and his attorney, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani.
“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,” Davis said Wednesday.
He added; “This is a time where Mr. Cohen had to put his family and their safety first.”
Cohen “looks forward to testifying at the appropriate time,” according to his council Lanny Davis and claimed Trump and Giuliani had threatened Cohen, who was recently sentenced to three years in prison.
Fox news also reported:
Burr and Warner declined to comment on the subpoena, and provided no additional details as to when Cohen could appear before the Senate Intelligence Committee to testify.
Cohen does not have to report to prison until March 6.
Cohen previously testified in private before the same committee in August 2017. In November, as part of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, Cohen pleaded guilty to lying to Congress during that deposition.
