Wow, we haven’t been this shocked since learning that former CNN contributor Donna Brazile had passed along debate questions to the Hillary Clinton campaign in the 2016 election.
As Twitchy reported earlier Wednesday, Michael Cohen, testifying before the House Oversight Committee, admitted that he’d talked with a handful of Democrats before the hearing, including Chairman Elijah Cummings, Chairman Adam Schiff, and “various individuals” in the Democratic party; oh, and he said Lanny Davis was representing him pro bono.
Rep. Jim Jordan pressed him further about these discussions with Democratic members of the committee and learned that they discussed topics that might come up during the hearing.
"What did you talk to Mr. Schiff about?"
Cohen: "I spoke to Mr. Schiff about topics that were going to be raised at the upcoming hearing."
"Woah. Not just what time to show up? Actually what you're going to talk about?" pic.twitter.com/c07dRqbQ8A

This was a great question.

Did you see Cohen’s reaction after the question and his response? Cohen looked around the room at everyone’s reaction to his statement. He looked very uncomfortable along with Lanny Davis & the other attorneys behind Cohen!

Please ask him more about what Adam Schiff talked to him about.

With rumors of the Robert Mueller report being less than the bombshell The Resistance had hoped for, maybe Schiff thought he could coach Cohen a little bit.

Good job Jim. Thank you for speaking the truth about this collusion by Schiff.

So the dems on the commitee COLLUDED with Cohen about the questions and answers he would be giving today? That make this hearing a farse. Its all about making Trump look bad, NOT finding out any new info but just theatrics.

Witness tampering is the act of attempting to alter or prevent the testimony within criminal or civil proceedings. Laws regarding witness tampering also apply to proceedings before the U.S. Congress, executive departments, and administrative agencies. Awesome job today!👍

This was 100% a hit by the Dems to embarrass the President.. And the fact that they don't care that they are destroying a Nation through the process, just shows how far left they've gone. And I really hope the American Voters remember this in 2020.
