Mr Davis said Cohen looked forward to testifying at a later date.
- September and October 2017: Cohen says in prepared remarks to the Senate intelligence committee that the Moscow deal ended "before the Iowa caucus and months before the first primary". In a 2007 deposition, Trump said, "We will be in Moscow at some point".
Michael Cohen chose to turn on his former boss President Donald Trump long ago, but he did it again in pretty stark fashion on Wednesday. He blamed threats from Trump and the president's attorney-spokesman, Rudy Giuliani, and cited his own ongoing cooperation in special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation.
"There's no evidence that the president told him to lie", Giuliani said on NBC's "Meet the Press".
Cohen promised, however, that he would appear before Congress to tell what he knows of Trump's inner circle.
Giuliani suggested in a TV interview Sunday that Trump remembers conversations with Cohen about the project "up to as far as October, November", or right up until the election. "But he should give information maybe on his father-in-law, because that's the one that people want to look at", Trump said with reference to Cohen and his father-in-law.
He said in the guilty plea that he was directed to make the payments by Mr Trump. "BuzzFeed's description of specific statements to the Special Counsel's Office, and characterization of documents and testimony obtained by this office, regarding Michael Cohen's Congressional testimony are not accurate", spokesman Peter Carr says in a statement.
President Trump tweeted on Thursday morning, apparently in response to Davis' interview, "So interesting that bad lawyer Michael Cohen, who sadly will not be testifying before Congress, is using the lawyer of Crooked Hillary Clinton to represent him - Gee, how did that happen?" It's no secret that Cohen has a bone to pick with the president, since he's about to go to prison for helping him.
When asked if Cohen would comply with a subpoena, Davis told ABC News "We will comply and hope to agree upon reasonable terms, ground rules and a date".
"We have received Mr. Cohen's notice postponing his voluntary appearance in an open hearing before the Committee on Oversight and Reform".
That appearance had been set for a month before Cohen is due to surrended to begin a three-year prison sentence for mulitple crimes, some of which relate to Trump.
"As we stated previously with our colleague, Chairman Jerry Nadler of the Judiciary Committee, efforts to intimidate witnesses, scare their family members, or prevent them from testifying before Congress are textbook mob tactics that we condemn in the strongest terms", Cummings and Schiff said.
