The Los Angeles Times reports:
Michael Cohen, President Trump’s former lawyer and fixer, will postpone his hotly anticipated appearance before the House Oversight Committee because of “ongoing threats against his family” from President Trump, his spokesman said Wednesday.
Cohen was scheduled to testify on Feb. 7. He’s been the target of repeated insults from Trump and his lawyer, former New York Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani, both of whom have suggested that Cohen is trying to conceal crimes by his father-in-law.
“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,” Lanny Davis, the spokesman, said in his statement.
So the president can successfully threaten a witness and we are all going to let it happen? https://t.co/yPiz1PJTIC
