Senate panel postpones hearing with Trump lawyer Cohen in Russia probe

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Senate Intelligence Committee investigating U.S. allegations of Russian interference in the 2016 election said on Friday it had postponed a public hearing with Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s lawyer, and it would be rescheduled.

On Sept. 19, the committee abruptly canceled an interview with Cohen as part of its investigation into Moscow’s suspected hacking and propaganda campaign and possible collusion between Trump campaign associates and Russian officials.

The panel said then that Cohen had been asked to appear at an open hearing on Oct. 25.

The September hearing was canceled after Cohen released a statement to the media, which committee leaders said violated the panel’s policy.

Senators Richard Burr, the Intelligence committee’s Republican chairman, and Mark Warner, its Democratic vice chairman, did not offer an explanation on Friday for the postponement of the public hearing.
