Donald Trump’s longtime personal attorney, Michael Cohen, is scheduled to publicly testify Wednesday, Feb. 27 before the House Oversight Committee, in what is anticipated to be explosive testimony about the Trump Organization’s finances and Donald Trump’s behind-the-scenes behavior, including his propensity for lying, cheating, and racism.

With that in mind, Donald Trump’s biggest defender and loyalist in Congress used Twitter this afternoon to publicly threaten Michael Cohen.

It’s more than beyond outrageous—it’s likely a federal felony. Federal law prohibits witness tampering. I tagged a few well-known legal experts on Twitter, and NBC legal analyst Maya Wiley responded quickly.

This is a quickly developing story and Gaetz is already getting inquiries and a flurry of outraged responses. He’s digging in.
