Senate Intel Committee Subpoenas Michael Cohen

Talking Points Memo reports:

President Trump’s former personal lawyer Michael Cohen has been subpoenaed to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee in mid-February, CNN reported on Thursday.

Cohen was interviewed by committee staff in fall of 2017 as part of its ongoing investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Since, Cohen has pleaded guilty to lying to Congress about plans to build a Trump property in Moscow, agreeing to cooperate in separate federal probe run by special counsel Robert Mueller.

This action was widely expected after Cohen yesterday postponed his scheduled February 7th appearance before the committee, citing threats to his family by Trump and Giuliani.
