    What? Like Trump is going Al Pacino or something like that?

    The headline doesn't match the article.
    Moreover, it doesn't say that Trump ever issued any threat at all.
    It appears from the article that Cohen is fearful, or feigning it.
    But no actual threats by anyone are cited.

    I strongly recommend against posting articles
    so quickly just because they're anti-Trump.
    Read them carefully first.
    Check other sources.
    Write titles which reflect the actual claims.

    Actually I did not I saw a long long tv news program about it and I'm watching and I saw a bunch of articles about it. Cohen does claim not only Trump did but also Giulianno and actually it is a big story, sorry your wrong about it. But ILl find some other articles on it. They are saying that this is also grounds for investigating on Trump and Guilliano for witness tampering and obstruction.

    i have the article here and your wrong. First place Cohen was suppose to go testify to Mueller and also Democratic house Adam and tella huge bunch of important stuff for the Mueller probe and now he is saying he is not because Trump is threatening him. Heres one excerpt, and that's huge.
    “Due to ongoing threats against his family from President Trump and Mr. Giuliani, as recently as this weekend, as well as Mr. Cohen’s continued cooperation with ongoing investigations, by advice of counsel, Mr. Cohen’s appearance will be postponed to a later date,” Cohen representative Lanny Davis said in a statement. “Mr. Cohen wishes to thank Chairman Cummings for allowing him to appear before the House Oversight Committee and looks forward to testifying at the appropriate time.”

    That there is a big things.

    This is from the excerpt
    Cohen was reportedly concerned that these mentions of his family members by the president could prompt Trump’s supporters to target him or his loved ones.

    Heres more excerpts huge.
    “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,” the statement said.

    The chairmen said that they still intended to require Cohen’s testimony at some point, saying “not appearing before Congress was never an option.”

    We will not let the President’s tactics prevent Congress from fulfilling our constitutionally mandated oversight responsibilities,” they wrote. “This will not stop us from getting to the truth. We expect Mr. Cohen to appear before both Committees, and we remain engaged with his counsel about his upcoming appearances.”



    Another reason why it might not make sense for Cohen to testify in the next few weeks: he’s still cooperating with multiple investigations out of the New York Attorney General’s office, the Manhattan U.S. Attorney’s office, and special counsel Robert Mueller. Cohen would likely be unable to discuss any matters related to those probes, as his statement suggests.

    Thats huge and there will be a new investigation you can count on it!

    This doesn't support the claim that Trump made a threat.
    TPM is dishonest by entitling the story with a claim not made in the article.
    At least your title is a question, but it's one without a basis.

    Of course.
    But you'd be wise to consider the downside of posting articles which misrepresent facts.

    Well its not misrepresented and it is so big. You say to everyone of my articles. I have as of yet to put an article up here Republicans and those who don't agree with me sit up and say: That's not a real article fake news or bs it doesn't count as an actual post. Its just your way of trying to make it into nothing but its all BS>

    Trying to discount my posts as nothing is your bag, I don't care. Its my opinion and I'm free to it.

    I sought to help you avoid the discord you suffered in similar situations.
    More care in deciding which opinions to hold & present would be wise.

    This is alla bout Cohen testifying at Mueller's investigation hearing in court, we have been having a huge monstrous amount of threads over Muellers probe. That's what this is all about weather or not Cohen will be testifying. It is in line with and on topic of a million other Mueller probe threads and I'm happy with it.

    But sense you accused me of misrepresenting facts and have offered no proof or nothing of what your speaking of, it accounts for a big nothing. You need to back that up buddy, Exactly what are you talking about, you cant point a finger and offer no proof and or mention of what your even speaking about. You know better then that,

    Agreed there has been no specific threat cited yet but Cohen has cited the uncited threats are from Trump and Giuliani. Multiple sources here.

    I did the exact exact opposite and I have proof.My tittle was Trump threatens Cohens family and the tittle

    t appears from the article that Cohen is fearful or feigning it But no actual threas, That's a lie here's the exact words
    i have the article here and your wrong. First place Cohen was suppose to go testify to Mueller and also Democratic house Adam and tella huge bunch of important stuff for the Mueller probe and now he is saying he is not because Trump is threatening him. Heres one excerpt, and that's huge.

    It appears from this excerpt that everything you said is exactly wrong he says Trump threatened his family.

    I gave you credit for the question mark in your title.

    While it's possible that Trump is threatening Cohen & his family,
    my post was about the OP's penchant for posting an article which
    doesn't support its own title, & offers no evidence for the claim.
    The OP has expressed hurt feelings over the DC protest thread
    she started. I sought to advise how to avoid more such pain.

    If Trump did make such threats, what are the details....
    By phone?
    By print?
    What was specifically said?
    Those are worth considering when making the accusation.

    I just got the eact details/ Here they are Trumps tweets calling on the Mueller probe to investigate his father in law saying Watch the Father in Law. Giuianno talked about it Sunday night.Trump has tweeted about Cohens family needing to be investigated over and over and called on Mueller to investigate them!
