After surgery, Michael Cohen's prison date postponed to May

After surgery, Michael Cohen's prison date postponed to May”

Cohen will report to federal prison on May 6 after a judge granted him a two-month delay to allow him to recover from a surgical procedure and to prepare for his congressional testimony, according to a court filing on Wednesday.

His congressional testimony, Monico added, "will require Mr. Cohen to spend substantial time in preparation that will limit the time he has to get his affairs in order and spend time with his family, especially given such a short period between the anticipated hearings and the present reporting date".

Cohen is also scheduled to testify at a closed hearing of the House Intelligence Committee on February 28.

Mueller leads the investigation into possible collusion between the Trump 2016 presidential campaign and Russian Federation, a probe that increasingly menaces the White House. "Congress has an obligation under the Constitution to conduct independent and robust oversight of the Executive Branch, and this hearing is one step in that process".

Davis said Wednesday night on Twitter night that Cohen would speak about his experience working as Trump's fixer.

In announcing Cohen's testimony, Cummings said the oversight committee would ask Trump's former lawyer to "describe his concerns about the president's actions since assuming office".

According to a memo sent out by committee staff, Cohen's appearance before the oversight panel will concern various financial issues related to the 2016 presidential campaign, including payments to adult film star Stormy Daniels and former Playboy model Karen McDougal that federal prosecutors in NY say were directed by Trump.

Cohen, 52, was spotted last month in New York City wearing a hospital ID bracelet and with his right arm in a sling after his lawyer said he'd undergone minor shoulder surgery. Cohen tweeted late on Wednesday, linking to a fundraising effort for his legal fees.

Cohen was sentenced to three years in prison after pleading guilty to financial and campaign finance crimes related to those payments.
