Michael Cohen’s Senate testimony postponed

February 11, 2019

Michael Cohen has postponed his scheduled closed-door appearance Tuesday before a Senate committee because of “post-surgery medical needs,” his attorney said Monday.

Lanny Davis, who is representing Cohen, said the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence had accepted the delay and will announce a future date for his appearance.

Cohen recently had surgery on his shoulder.

This is the third time Cohen has had to reschedule an appearance before lawmakers. Last week, the House Intelligence Committee pushed back its plans to speak with Cohen until Feb. 28.

The House Oversight Committee also planned to speak with Cohen, but that was canceled after he cited “ongoing threats against his family.” A makeup date has not yet been set.

Cohen, President Trump’s former attorney and personal fixer, is set to report to federal prison March 6 to begin a three-year sentence for tax fraud, lying to Congress and campaign finance violations.
