Michael Cohen closed-door testimony postponed

06 FEB 19 10:25 ET

(CNN) — President Donald Trump’s ex-attorney Michael Cohen has postponed his congressional testimony before a second House committee, as the House Intelligence panel has scrapped his planned Friday appearance.

House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff said in a statement that Cohen’s closed-door testimony would be postponed until later this month.

“In the interests of the investigation, Michael Cohen’s testimony has been postponed until February 28th,” said Schiff, a Democrat from California.

It’s the second time that a House committee has announced that Cohen would be appearing, only for it later to be postponed.

Cohen was also scheduled to testify publicly before the House Oversight Committee on Thursday, but Oversight Chairman Elijah Cummings announced last month that the hearing was postponed. A new date has not been announced.

Cohen was also subpoenaed to appear before the Senate Intelligence Committee next week.

Cohen’s congressional testimony comes before he is slated to begin a three-year prison sentence on March 6. Cohen was sentenced in December after pleading guilty to tax and campaign finance crimes, as well as lying to Congress in his 2017 testimony.
