Porn star Stormy Daniels and her attorney Michael Avenatti on Wednesday excoriated President Donald Trump’s former longtime attorney for backing out of public testimony before the House Oversight Committee out of fear for his family.
“Are you f—ing serious, Mikey?!” Daniels tweeted. “What about MY family? You gave zero sh— about my baby. In all serious though, this is WHY you shouldn’t back down! This is your chance to be a hero! I’ll loan you some of my balls, hold your hand, or whatever else you need to do the right thing.” . . .
In a Wednesday statement, Davis that Cohen would delay the planned testimony — which was scheduled for Feb. 7 — “due to ongoing threats against his family” from Trump and his personal attorney Rudy Giuliani. . .
A source close to Cohen told NBC News that his wife and father-in-law were particularly scared of him testifying before Congress, having felt directly targeted by Trump. “The threats are real,” the source said. “Trump knows what he’s doing.” . . .
In December, Cohen was sentenced to three years in prison for what a Manhattan federal court judge called a “veritable smorgasbord” of criminal conduct, including making secret payments to women — including Daniels — who claimed they had affairs with Trump, lying to Congress about the president’s business dealings with Russia and failing to report millions of dollars in income.
