Cohen, Senate Panel Agree On Feb. 12 Interview

News
KELO Michael Cohen

President Donald Trump’s former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, and a Senate committee investigating Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election have agreed on a Feb. 12 interview date.
    
Lanny Davis, Cohen’s lawyer, said Thursday night that the two sides had reached an agreement on a date for Cohen to testify following the Senate intelligence committee’s decision to subpoena him.
    
The development comes one day after Cohen postponed his public testimony to a House committee, citing ongoing cooperation in special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation and threats against his family.
    
Cohen, the president’s onetime fixer, is set to begin a three-year prison sentence in March.
    
Any interview with Cohen would almost certainly take place in private, in keeping with how the panel generally conducts Russia-related hearings.
