(Washington, D.C.) — U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL-23), a Member of the Committee on Oversight and Reform, released the following statement in response to Michael Cohen’s request to postpone his upcoming Congressional testimony:

“President Trump has left a lengthy and disturbing trail of statements and actions that have likely influenced ongoing federal investigations. Michael Cohen’s decision to postpone his testimony due to ‘ongoing threats against his family’ by the President and his lawyer is just one more example of potential witness intimidation and obstruction of justice. The President should do nothing that interferes with Congress’s oversight and investigative responsibilities. I join Chairmen Elijah E. Cummings and Adam Schiff in their expectation that Mr. Cohen will testify before Congress.”
