Stormy Daniels has lashed out at Michael Cohen on Twitter after Trump's former personal attorney delayed his testimony after 'threats against his family from president Trump'.

Cohen's lawyer delayed the disgraced lawyer's testimony in front of the House Oversight Committe next month, citing the alleged safety concerns.

Needless to say, his former adversary Stormy Daniels was less than impressed by the news. Taking to Twitter, she wrote:

Are you f***ing serious, Mikey?! What about MY family? You gave zero s***s about my baby.

In all serious though, this is WHY you shouldn't back down! This is your chance to be a hero! I'll loan you some of my balls, hold your hand, or whatever else you need to do the right thing.

The comment was a reference to an incident that allegedly occurred after Daniels spoke out about her alleged affair with Trump. She claims that in 2011, she gave an interview to a magazine that was swiftly spiked, and weeks later she claims she was approached in a parking lot by a man while with her baby.

Speaking at the time, the Daily Mail reports she said:

I was in a parking lot, going to a fitness class with my infant daughter.

Taking, you know, the seats facing backwards in the backseat, diaper bag, you now, gettin' all the stuff out.

And a guy walked up on me and said to me, 'Leave Trump alone. Forget the story.'

Daniels and her attorney Michael Avenatti have both claimed that it was Trump who sent the man to approach her and her baby.

Avenatti was equally vocal about Cohen's decision. Taking to Twitter, he wrote:

It is ludicrous that Michael Cohen and Lanny Davis are attempting to sell Cohen’s refusal to testify as him looking out for his family. We have all received numerous threats, especially @StormyDaniels (largely due to Cohen btw). It doesn’t stop us from doing what is right.

Michael Cohen's lawyer released a statement regards the decision to delay:

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.

This is a time where Mr. Cohen had to put his family and their safety first.​

Trump responded:

He's only been threatened by the truth.
