Michael Cohen is reportedly locked-in to appear for committee hearings on Capitol Hill before he goes to prison.

On Wednesday, Cohen’s attorney — Lanny Davis — told MSNBC his client will show for a public hearing with the House Oversight Committee panel and two closed-door sessions with the House and Senate Intelligence Committees.

This comes after Cohen postponed the three committee hearings in a matter of days, citing several different excuses from the safety of his family to medical reasons.

Davis then directly called out Senate Intelligence Committee chairman Richard Burr over how he believes the senator has handled the situation.

“Senator Burr, we’re coming in less than two week — your staff probably didn’t tell you that when you went on television yesterday,” he stated. “You’re a good guy, we’re coming — there were no false excuses.”

Michael Cohen is expected to appear for his first hearing with House lawmakers on Thursday, February 28th.
