Is Michael Cohen’s Postponing Testimony For Safety?
Dear Friends & Neighbors,
(Please click on red links & note magenta)
President Donald Trump’s former personal lawyer Michael Cohen was subpoenaed to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee in mid-February, according to a source close to Cohen. It is not clear how Cohen will respond. The source said that Cohen has the same concerns regarding the safety of his family that led him to postpone his scheduled public appearance before the House Oversight Committee next month. Senate Intelligence traditionally does their interviews behind closed doors, not publicly. A committee spokeswoman declined to comment, in the video “Michael Cohen subpoenaed by Senate Intelligence Committee“, below:
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’s appearance will be postponed to a later date…This is a time where Mr. Cohen had to put his family and their safety first.
On Tuesday, January 22, 2019, Michael Cohen’s attorney, Lanny Davis, issued a statement declaring that Cohen was postponing his voluntary appearance due to ongoing threats against his family from Trump and Giuliani, according to reporter Emily Jane Fox, in the video “Is Michael Cohen’s Postponing Testimony About Safety? Morning Joe, MSNBC“, below:
Sources close to Michael Cohen tell NBC News that his wife and father-in-law are scared and feel directly targeted by Trump. The sources also told NBC that “the threats are real” and “Trump knows what he is doing.” in the video “Michael Cohen’s Wife, Father-In-Law Feel Directly Targeted By President Trump“, below:
“Whoever knowingly uses intimidation, threatens, or corruptly persuades another person, or attempts to do so… with intent to influence, delay, or prevent the testimony of any person in an official proceeding or cause or induce any person to withhold testimony, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 20 years, or both.”
Shouldn’t members of the Congress have some reactions to this type of witness tampering?
