Michael Cohen Delays Congressional Hearing – Cites Safety Fears After ‘Threats to His Family From President Trump’

A couple weeks ago, Trump’s former personal lawyer-turned-rat Michael Cohen agreed to publicly testify to the House Oversight Committee on February 7th.

“I look forward to having the privilege of being afforded a platform with which to give a full and credible account of the events which have transpired,” Michael Cohen previously said in a statement to ABC News, adding that he accepted the invitation “in furtherance of my commitment to cooperate and provide the American people with answers.”

On Wednesday, Cohen postponed his Congressional hearing citing safety concerns.

Michael Cohen’s Clinton-linked gutter dwelling lawyer Lanny Davis released a statement on Wednesday announcing the postponement of his client’s hearing and accused the President of threatening Cohen’s family.


“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 wishes to thank Chairman Cummings for allowing him to appear before the House Oversight Committee and looks forward to testifying at the appropriate time,” Lanny Davis said, adding Cohen had to “put his family and their safety first.”

Lanny Davis appeared to be referencing President Trump’s appearance on Fox News with Judge Jeanine Pirro last weekend where he said that media and prosecutors should be looking into Cohen’s family and father-in-law.

The timing of Cohen’s postponement is interesting given that BuzzFeed just got nuked by Robert Mueller after they floated a conspiracy theory that Cohen lied to Congress on President Trump’s direction.

Perhaps Cohen is avoiding having to go on the record that he’s a liar or perjure himself.

In December, Cohen wept as he begged the judge to give him no jail time. He threw Trump under the bus and said it was his ‘blind loyalty‘ that led him to cover up the President’s “dirty deeds.”

Manhattan prosecutors went for the jugular and Cohen was sentenced to 3 years in prison.

Cohen is expected to report to prison on March 6th.
