 Former Trump attorney Michael Cohen postponing testimony to Congress - adviser

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump's former attorney Michael Cohen 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.

Cohen did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
