President Donald Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen announced he is postponing his public congressional testimony that was scheduled for February 7, citing "ongoing threats against his family from President Trump" and his attorney.

Democrats are considering whether to subpoena Cohen to force him to testify, and at least one senior Democrat on the House Oversight Committee said he expects Chairman Elijah Cummings of Maryland to issue such a subpoena.
"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," Cohen's attorney Lanny Davis said in a statement. "Mr. Cohen wishes to thank Chairman Cummings for allowing him to appear before the House Oversight Committee and looks forward to testifying at the appropriate time."
Meh. I didn't see Guiliani threatening Cohen's family in interviews over the weekend. And, even if subpeona'ed, he can't be asked about anything regarding ongoing investigations.

Cohen is just trying to avoid this to avoid being asked questions about his crooked family.

as a small aside...

I am watching Trump complaining about Pelosi canceling the state of the union speech.  Trump sounds like he is straight out of the 'festivus' eppisode from Seinfeld.  Basically any time he speaks it is just an 'Airing of Grievances' as he has no coherent point that he is trying to make.
