In A Tweet, Trump Goes After 'Crooked' Clinton, Taunts Cohen For 'Sadly' Not Testifying Before Congress
President Trump went after Michael Cohen on Twitter Thursday.
President Trump went after his former attorney Michael Cohen and Hillary Clinton in a tweet on Thursday.
"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?" Trump tweeted.
Cohen's lawyer, Lanny Davis, announced the decision to postpone the testimony on Wednesday, citing "threats" by Trump and the president's attorney Rudy Giuliani.
"Due to ongoing threats against his family from President Trump and Mr. Giuliani, as recently as this weekend, as well as Mr. Cohen's continued cooperation with ongoing investigations, by advice of counsel, Mr. Cohen's appearance will be postponed to a later date," Davis said in a statement.
Hours after the release of the statement, Trump dismissed it, saying that Cohen has only been "threatened by the truth."
Last month, Cohen was sentenced to three years in prison for charges that "included arranging hush-money payments to two women who said they had affairs with Mr. Trump, tax evasion, making a false statement to a bank and lying to Congress," according to the New York Times.
