The Senate intelligence committee has subpoenaed President Donald Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen to testify before the panel in mid-February, a day after Cohen said he planned to postpone an appearance next week before Congress, NBC News and CNN reported Thursday.
Cohen's legal adviser Lanny Davis, confirmed the news reports.
"This morning the Senate Intelligence Committee served Michael Cohen with a subpoena," Davis said in a statement.
CNN said Cohen received the subpoena Thursday, and that it was unclear how he planned to respond.
NBC reported that neither the committee's chairman, Sen. Richard Burr, R-N.C., and the top Democrat on the committee, Sen. Mark Warner of Virginia, woud comment.
