Former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen has voluntarily agreed to testify behind closed doors to the House Intelligence Committee on Feb. 8, committee chair Adam Schiff announced in a statement today.
Why it matters: Cohen said last week that he was postponing his testimony in front of the House Oversight Committee — originally scheduled for Feb. 7 — due to "threats against his family from President Trump and Mr. Giuliani," as well as his cooperation in ongoing investigations. House Oversight chair Elijah Cummings and Schiff issued a statement following that saying, while they understood Cohen's concerns, "not appearing before Congress was never an option."
