Cohen delays congressional testimony citing alleged threats

There are rumors Cohen is personally reluctant and the testimony was arranged by "his" lawyer, Lanny Davis, a long-time Clinton ally, but the official reason for the delay is apparently "threats" from Trump and Giuliani. As in death threats, I suppose. (The issue is framed as one of security and personal safety, so we're not talking about legal threats).

Personally, I think Lanny Davis orchestrated the "leak" to Buzzfeed about Trump telling Cohen to lie to Congress, and when Mueller had to flatly deny that claim, Cohen decided he needed to reevaluate his planned testimony to avoid lying to Congress again. Blaming the delay on absurd allegations of threats is just a bonus smearjob.
