President Trumps former personal attorney Michael Cohen is postponing his closed-door testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee, citing medical reasons due to a recent surgery, his attorney Lanny Davis said Monday.
Cohen had been subpoenaed by the committee to testify on Feb. 12 as part of the panels ongoing Russian interference investigation. Davis said at the time that he planned to comply but that the parties would need to discuss the details, including his appearance date, given that Cohen had recently undergone major surgery.
The Senate Select Committee on Intelligence has accepted Mr. Cohens request for postponement of tomorrows hearing due to post surgery medical needs, Davis said in a brief statement Monday. A future date will be announced by the Committee.
Cohen already testified before committee staff in October 2017. However, it has since been revealed that he lied to the committee about the timing and details of discussions within the Trump organization to build a property in Moscow during the presidential campaign, which Cohen has admitted he did in order to minimize links between Trump and the project.
Cohen has attracted the attention of multiple congressional committees as a result of his ties to the president. Separately, he is expected to testify before the House Intelligence Committee behind closed doors on Feb. 28 as part of the Democrat-led panels revived and expanded probe into ties between Trump and Moscow.
Lanny Davis will do anything (including lie) to get at Trump, including sacrificing Cohen.
a headectomy ?
he had Adam Schitt’s lips removed from his posterior.
1st it was ‘’threats’’ from Trump (pure BS).
Now health problems.
Lanny is a sleazeball representing a sleazeball!
It’s sounds like he’s trying to delay going to jail by promising to bring down President Trump for them. He’s their boy.
“Its sounds like hes trying to delay going to jail by promising to bring down President Trump for them.”
Cohen has been used up and thrown away. If he had anything, he would be riding high right about now, and treated like royalty.
