WASHINGTON—Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s former personal lawyer, has indefinitely postponed his voluntary testimony to the House Oversight and Reform Committee, citing “ongoing threats” against himself and his family, his attorney said Wednesday. Cohen’s lawyer, Lanny Davis, said the threats came primarily from the president and his attorney, Rudy Giuliani. Trump has suggested Cohen’s father-in-law, Fima Shusterman, who has pleaded guilty in the past to financial crimes related to his taxi-medallion business, has ties to organized crime.
