Lanny Davis, legal adviser and spokesman for Michael Cohen, called for an investigation into President Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani over what he’s calling “witness tampering.”

“Let me be very clear, the House of Representatives now has an obligation,” Davis told ABC’s  “Good Morning America” on Thursday. “A resolution of censure when the President of the United States indisputably intimidates and obstructs justice to prevent a witness from testifying is an order. So is a federal criminal investigation of Rudy Giuliani for witness tampering. Calling out a man’s father-in-law and wife in order to intimidate the witness is not fair game.”

Through Davis, Cohen said Wednesday he would not testify before Congress as planned in February due to concerns about he and his family’s safety because of public threats both Trump and Giuliani have made. The Senate Intelligence Committee announced Thursday it would subpoena Cohen to testify.

Both Trump and Giuliani have baselessly implied that Cohen’s father-in-law is involved in criminal financial activities.
