Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s former attorney, is postponing his scheduled Feb. 7 testimony to Congress due to threats against his family from Trump, his adviser said on Wednesday.

Attorney Lanny Davis, who has been advising Cohen on his media strategy, said in a statement that Cohen had decided to postpone his appearance to a later date due to “ongoing threats against his family from President Trump” as well as his continuing cooperation with investigators.

Asked Wednesday about threats to Cohen, Trump replied, “He’s only been threatened by the truth.”
