Washington [USA], Jan 24 (ANI): United States President Donald Trump on Thursday  targeted his former attorney Michael Cohen, who postponed the date of his public testimony in the US Congress that was slated to take place on February 7. 
The US President took to Twitter as saying, "So interesting that bad lawyer Michael Cohen, who sadly will not be testifying before Congress, is using the lawyer of Crooked Hillary Clinton to represent him - Gee, how did that happen? Remember July 4th weekend when Crooked went before FBI & wasn’t sworn in, no tape, nothing?"
Cohen postponed his public testimony on Wednesday, citing "ongoing threats against his family" from Trump and his lawyer Rudy Giuliani.
Democrats may issue a subpoena to Cohen, with one source telling CNN that Chairman Elijah Cummings may issue one to Trump's former lawyer whose prison sentence starts on March 6. In fact, House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff has said that he is prepared to subpoena Cohen if he does not voluntarily testify before the Congress ahead of his prison term.
Meanwhile, Cummings assured of Cohen's testimony on an unspecified date, adding that Cohen could testify after going to prison as well. Both Cummings and Schiff slammed Trump and Giuliani for "efforts to intimidate witnesses, scare their family members, or prevent them from testifying before Congress," in a joint statement.
Cohen pleaded guilty to multiple charges in December last year, including campaign finance crimes related to payments made to silence women during the 2016 presidential campaign on Trump's directives, according to the prosecutors. (ANI)
