They should also subpoena Trump and force him to explain why he thinks it is okay to threaten witnesses.

The Senate Intelligence Committee has issued a subpoena to compel Michael D. Cohen, President Trump’s former lawyer, to appear before the panel next month to formally correct false testimony that he delivered last year about a proposed Trump Organization project in Moscow, one of his lawyers confirmed on Thursday.

The subpoena was disclosed a day after Mr. Cohen pulled out of a public hearing scheduled for Feb. 7 before the House Oversight and Reform Committee, citing in a letter from his lawyer, Lanny J. Davis, verbal attacks by Mr. Trump.

Mr. Cohen’s initial agreement to appear before the Oversight Committee had been voluntary, but he will have little choice in complying with the Senate request. Democrats in charge of the House Oversight and Intelligence committees have signaled in recent days that they may follow suit and issue subpoenas of their own, despite acknowledging Mr. Cohen’s safety concerns.

Unlike the Oversight session, Mr. Cohen’s return to the Senate Intelligence Committee will almost certainly be behind closed doors. The panel has conducted a wide-ranging investigation of Russia’s election interference campaign, and possible ties to the Trump campaign, for roughly two years now largely out of the public eye.

If they are going to force Cohen to put himself and his family at risk like this they better make sure that they have adequately beefed up security.

We would not let a Mafia boss get away with this kind of shit, and let’s face it Trump is just a poor man’s version of Tony Soprano.

    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?

    “Well, first of all, I’m describing the emotional thoughts of a father-in-law from Ukraine who has been here for 45 years and is called out by Rudy Guiliani as having links to organized crime, because he’s from Ukraine,” Davis replied. “That’s Mr. Trump’s lawyer, who does not have immunity and that’s witness tampering on its face.”

    “And the message being sent, at least according to the family members, is fear,” he said. “They are fearful. He is fearful. His parents are fearful. So that is what is going on.”
