Trump's former lawyer Cohen gets two-month delay to report to prison

Donald Trump denies NYT report he tried to interfere in Michael Cohen probe

Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump's former personal attorney and fixer, exits federal court after his sentencing hearing, December 12, 2018 in New York City.

The House Oversight Committee, now led by Democrat Elijah Cummings, announced on Wednesday that it will hold a public hearing next Wednesday at which Cohen will be the only witness.

Cohen was originally scheduled to report to jail on March 6 to begin serving a three-year sentence after he pleaded guilty to campaign finance and other violations last year.

Cohen's Senate committee testimony will be the first of three congressional appearances the former Trump lawyer is scheduled to make next week.

Cohen's lawyers requested the delay in a letter to a judge Wednesday, citing a "serious surgical procedure" that requires extensive physical therapy. He is now scheduled to report to jail May 6.

Fry, was charged by prosecutors in the US Attorney's Office for the Northern District of California with the unauthorized disclosure of a document called a suspicious activity report, or SAR, which banks file when they review transactions that raise red flags. A closed-door interview before the House Intelligence committee was then postponed "in the interests of the investigation", Chairman Adam Schiff said.

Cohen will not be questioned about the ongoing investigations by Special Counsel Robert Mueller or the House and Senate Intelligence Committees into alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian officials.

Davis confirmed in a tweet that Cohen would appear before the Oversight Committee and said Cohen "will speak about his decade long experiences working for Mr. Trump".

The probe focused on hush money Cohen paid out to women during the election campaign who claimed to have had affairs with Trump.

The newspaper reported Tuesday that Trump called Whitaker asking for Geoffrey S. Berman, a us attorney from NY, to oversee the investigation.

After the delay request was granted, Monico and fellow Cohen lawyers Barry Spevack and Lanny Davis issued a statement saying the extra time will allow Cohen to "prepare for the expected testimony next week before congressional committees, which he welcomes".
