Michael Cohen, President Trump's former attorney, was scheduled to publicly testify about Trump to Congress next month, but revealed Wednesday he'd postpone that appearance due to alleged "ongoing threats against his family from President Trump" and Trump's current lawyer Rudy Giuliani. Cohen, who was sentenced to prison for financial crimes and for lying to Congress about the Trump Organization's plans to build a Trump Tower in Moscow, has been cooperating with Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe into the Trump campaign's potential involvement with Russian election interference. He said he'd tell Congress "all he knows" about Trump, but in a Wednesday statement from his attorney said he "had to put his family and their safety first." Cohen did not detail the alleged threats from Trump and Giuliani.
