Senate Intelligence Committee Subpoenas Michael Cohen to Testify in February
President Donald Trump’s former personal lawyer Michael Cohen has been subpoenaed by the Senate Intelligence Committee to testify in mid-February.
That’s according to a source close to Cohen.
The news comes just one day after Cohen announced he’s postponing his appearance before the House Oversight Committee, citing threats against his family from President Trump and the president’s attorney Rudy Giuliani.
Cohen was set to testify before the Oversight Committee on February 7 about one month before he reports to prison in March.
In December he was sentenced to three years in prison on multiple charges, including campaign finance crimes tied to illicit payments made to silence women during the presidential campaign.
Prosecutors say President Trump directed Cohen to make those payments, but President Trump denies the accusation.
