Senate Intel Committee Subpoenas Michael Cohen to Testify

A day after Michael Cohen said he wanted to postpone his congressional testimony before the House Oversight and Reform Committee, the Senate Intelligence Committee sent him a subpoena to appear before them on Feb. 12. They want to ask him questions about the time he served as Trump's lawyer, as part of the larger special counsel Russia investigation.

“Of course he will honor the subpoena,” Lanny Davis said of his client. 

But, Davis and Cohen want to make sure that his family is protected. Cohen wanted to postpone the hearing after President Trump and his lawyer Rudy Giuliani suggested that Cohen's father-in-law be investigated for alleged ties to organized crime. 

Trump has also on occasion referred to Cohen as a "weak person" and a "rat."

The lawyer defined the president's sentiments as "ongoing threats" to his family.

He's also concerned about his own safety in prison. Cohen was sentenced to three years in prison for campaign finance laws regarding his hush payments to two women who reportedly had affairs with Trump, and for lying to Congress about a Trump Tower project in Moscow.

“Mr. Cohen is concerned that when you are labeled a rat and you are going to federal prison, there could be some danger,” Davis said.

Cohen reports to prison on March 6.
