The Senate Intelligence Committee has officially subpoenaed former Trump “fixer” Michael Cohen just one day after he announced he wanted to indefinitely postpone his testimony over threats to his family made by President Donald Trump.

As reported by CNN’s Gloria Borger and Pamela Brown, the Senate has subpoenaed Cohen to testify in mid-February, weeks before he is scheduled to report to prison.

However, there is no guarantee yet that Cohen will show up on the proposed date, Borger and Brown report.

“It is not clear how Cohen will respond,” they write. “The source said that Cohen has the same concerns regarding the safety of his family that led him to try to postpone his appearance before a House Oversight Committee hearing.”

Cohen on Wednesday announced that he was indefinitely postponing his planned testimony before the House of Representatives next month due to threats made by the president to his father-in-law.

“This is a time when Mr. Cohen had to put his family and their safety first,” attorney Lanny Davis wrote in his explanation for why Cohen would postpone his testimony.

Trump last week made a vague reference to Cohen’s father-in-law on Twitter and then told Fox News host Jeanine Pirro over the weekend that prosecutors and reporters ought to be looking into Cohen’s family.
