Senate Intel Chair Tees Off on Cohen for Testimony Delay: ‘Any Goodwill’ Is Gone

The Senate Intelligence Committee, which has reportedly found no direct evidence of Trump-Russia collusion, had expected to hear from former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen today, but his closed-door testimony got postponed yesterday.

Lanny Davis said yesterday it’s being postponed for “post-surgery medical needs.” (Cohen recently had minor shoulder surgery.)

Intel Committee Chair Richard Burr spoke to reporters today and said that the committee’s patience is wearing thin:

“I can assure you that any goodwill that might have existed in the committee with Michael Cohen is now gone.”

When asked if there’s a chance they don’t end up speaking to Cohen before he goes to jail, Burr said, “I don’t know, you’d have to ask him about it.”

He added that he saw a reporter tweeting about him eating out in New York a few days ago “and he didn’t seem to have any physical limitations.”
