How in the world is it ok for Adam Schiff to coach Michael Cohen for 10 hours before he testifies before the House Judiciary Committee?
Talk about a dog & pony show!
As it turns out, the staff for Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff went to New York four times to meet with Michael Cohen for about 10 hours.
TomFitton spoke with Lou Dobbs: Schiff collaborating or colluding with Cohen for 10 hours before the testimony is extraordinary & highly irregular.
It seems you don’t need to follow the rules if you’re out to get President Trump.

Discussing logistics with the staff of the Intelligence Committee Chairman is way out of bounds and Schiff should be called out on this irregular move.
FOX News reported:
President Trump’s former personal attorney Michael Cohen told House investigators this week that staff for Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., traveled to New York at least four times to meet with him for over 10 hours immediately before last month’s high-profile public testimony, according to two sources familiar with the matter — as Republicans question whether the meetings amounted to coaching a witness.
The sources said the sessions covered a slew of topics addressed during the public hearing before the oversight committee — including the National Enquirer’s “Catch and Kill” policy, American Media CEO David Pecker and the alleged undervaluing of President Trump’s assets.
But, Republicans have signaled they’re not convinced, with Ohio Rep. Mike Turner sending a letter to Cohen’s team on Wednesday demanding answers.
Turner specifically asked for confirmation of Cohen’s contacts, if any, “with Democratic Members or Democratic staff of SSCI [Senate Select Committee on Intelligence], COR [House Committee on Oversight and Reform], or HPSCI [House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence] prior to his appearances before House and Senate committees last week” — as well as the lengths of such contacts, their locations and who exactly was involved.
“These questions are important for the public to understand whether or not they were watching witness testimony, a public hearing, or well-rehearsed theater,” he wrote.
