Michael Cohen

Michael Cohen, President Trump's former consigliere, will not testify before the House Oversight Committee on Feb. 7 as scheduled. Cohen's attorney, Lanny Davis, claims he postponed Cohen's appearance "indefinitely", citing threats from President Trump and Trump's current consigliere Rudy Giuliani.

Davis said in a statement released Wednesday, "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."

Giuliani is the former mayor of New York City.

The Senate Intelligence Committee didn't take too kindly to Cohen weaseling out of his planned appearance. The Committee subpoenaed Cohen to testify anyway in mid-February before he turns himself in to begin serving a 3 year prison sentence for multiple tax and campaign finance violations.

Cohen appeared before the Senate Intelligence Committee in 2017. He later plead guilty to lying about Trump's discussions with the Russians to build a Trump Tower in Moscow.

Trump and Giuliani have branded Cohen a pathological liar, saying he is a convicted felon who is "completely untrustworthy."

"If one thing has been established, it's that Michael Cohen is completely untrustworthy," Giuliani told the Wall Street Journal.

Senate Intelligence Chairman Richard Burr, a Republican from Maryland, is "confident" he can compel Cohen to appear before his committee behind closed doors before he reports to prison.

Cohen's scheduled appearance before the Senate Intelligence Committee in February would have been open to the public.

Cohen is scheduled to report to prison in March.

    ugh...I canna with anymore political shyt today.....see yall upstairs when a new post arrives...

    Word to the world of orange dumb ass people in his orb of stupid zombies. I think Cohen is setting this MoFo up on purpose for intimidating a witness and obstruction of justice because he knew what he was doing and saying when he first flipped and that it might possibly be a danger to his family. So just because the threats may have turnt up doesn't mean you turn and run. That's why I think Cohen is being smarter than the average orange man from out of space and setting that fool up.

  • Alextra Ballard

  • ?ee?? from TV ? ?

    So much for a Democracy....

  • free

    this morning on cnn, they were saying there was no "threat" associated with it, meaning you gotta basically say, "i'mma do this to you" or imply that something is going to happen to the person.

  • Baaba Sanders

    Maybe it’s because he knows how they operate and what they can do.

  • Renee26

    Why is it ok for the Thug in Chief to make treats against witnesses??

  • Renee26

    Because their threats may be followed thru and no justice will be served

    Treasonous Don who seems to be made of cheap Teflon is keeping the government closed down for this reason as well.

  • ShWa

    This is why the government is shut down, to delay his just due process.

  • Logan Roberts

    Welp Michael, you lay down with dogs you get up with fleas sir ?

  • OvertheMississippi

    Exactly! I called Alzheimer’s the first time Rudy opened his mouth. Trump is headed that way too.

  • OvertheMississippi

    Trump’s evil @ss threw that man’s FIL’s name out there talking about investigate him. Cohen might take himself out to “save” his family.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Yep. The gig is up for Cohen. After all this he'll be lucky to find work as a Sign Spinner.
    I hope he invested well.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    I keep thinking one day we'll see him in a straight jacket.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Legalized crookery. Most are scum.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    He sounds l00ney. You get dizzy trying to listen to him.

  • DroneRivers

    He just digs trump into a deep hole every time. It's like he's senile or something.

  • the guest

    Not fair.

  • the guest

    I think Michael Cohen is hero to the American people. He is without question setting up Trump and dry snitching on Trump for witness intimidation. I want Michael Cohen to live a long time. Because in 25 years after Trump has passed, that's when Cohen will REALLY tell all.
