REPORT: Cohen Met With Schiff’s Staff Numerous Times Before Hearing

Former Trump attorney Michael Cohen told investigators that House Intelligence Committee staffers for Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) traveled to New York to meet with him multiple times “immediately before” last month’s hearing on Capitol Hill, according to a Fox News report.

Two sources told Fox News that Cohen said the staffers traveled to New York at least four times and met with him for over 10 hours.

Fox News writes, “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.”

Republicans, however, are not convinced of the news and Rep. Mike Turner (R-OH) sent a letter to Cohen’s attorneys demanding answers.

Turner asked if Cohen made contact “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…” He also asked for specifics, such as the duration of the contacts, where the discussions took place and exactly who 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.

During last month’s hearing, Cohen admitted speaking with Congressman Schiff himself prior to the hearing.

“I spoke to Mr. Schiff about topics that were going to be raised at the upcoming hearing,” Cohen told Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH).

“Whoa,” Jordan responded. “Not just what time you’re going to show up, but what you’re going to talk about? Whoa.”

Shady Schiff Appoints Anti-Trump, Steele Dossier Supporter to House Intel Cmte

Congressman Adam Schiff (D-CA) has hired a proponent of the discredited anti-Trump dossier as the new director of investigations for the House Intelligence Committee.

Yesterday, Schiff announced that former assistant U.S. attorney and NBC News pundit Daniel Goldman would be appointed to the position.

Goldman, as the Washington Times’ Rowan Scarborough points out is a supporter of the widely discredited Trump-Russia dossier which was financed by the DNC and Clinton campaign.

“Mr. Goldman has endorsed Mr. Steele’s tale of how former Trump attorney Michael Cohen secretly traveled to Prague in August 2016 to meet with Vladimir Putin aides and to orchestrate a coverup of Russian hacking,” writes Scarborough.

The publication points to a Dec. 27 tweet where Goldman responded to a McClatchy news service report that claimed a cell tower detected a ping from Cohen’s phone near Prague.

Goldman tweeted, “a few reax points: 1) If Mueller knows this, and Cohen came clean (as they say he did), why not plead to lying to Congress about this? 2) critical corroboration of Steele Dossier. Nothing has been undermined thus far. 3) collusion!! 4) big cover-up.”

Fox News points out that Goldman has a long history of criticizing President Trump on social media.

Last year, he tweeted, “Trump ‘looks bad’ because he committed a crime, nothing else. He is not above the law,” adding the hashtag #TrumpResign.

He also wrote that Trump “doesn’t care about the country,” and referred to him as “shameful.”

Shady Schiff: We’ll Do Our Own Investigation if Mueller Finds No Collusion

Discredited third-rate conspiracy theorist, Congressman Adam Schiff (CA) indicated that wouldn’t accept the findings of the Special Counsel’s investigation into the Trump campaign and Russia if it concludes there was no evidence of collusion between the two.

Breitbart reports that on yesterday’s CNN show, State of the Union, host Dana Bash asked Schiff, “We expect at some point maybe soon, maybe not, the findings of the Mueller investigation to finally be completed. If he finds that there was no direct collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, will you accept that?”

Schiff responded, “We’re going to have to do our own investigation, and we are. We’ll certainly be very interested to learn what Bob Mueller finds. We may have to fight to get that information. Bill Barr has not been willing to commit to provide that report either to the Congress or to the American people. We’re going to need to see it. The American people need to see it. We may also need to see the evidence behind that report. There may be, for example, evidence of collusion or conspiracy that is clear and convincing but not proof beyond a reasonable doubt.”

When Bash noted that Mueller conducted an “extensive investigation” and asked whether or not Schiff would accept the findings “separate” from the investigation the Congressman is doing, he replied. “You know, I will certainly accept them in this way, Dana; I have great confidence in the special counsel. And if the special counsel represents that he has investigated and not been interfered with and not been able to make a criminal case, then I will believe that he is operating in good faith.”

Mueller’s investigation is rumored to be wrapping up. Last month, Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker told reporters, “The investigation is, I think, close to being completed and I hope that we can get the report from Mueller as soon as possible.”

Spygate: GOP Intel Cmte Members Seeking Subpoenas in FBI Bias Investigation

Republicans in the House Intelligence Committee are seeking to subpoena “about a dozen” individuals connected to allegations of political bias within the FBI according to ranking member Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA).

Speaking to Fox News’ Sean Hannity last night, Nunes said, “We are going to continue to call people in for interviews. Just last week, the new chairman of the committee said that he is going to reopen the Russia investigation. We offered about a dozen subpoenas of people that we wanted to subpoena. We don’t expect for them to subpoena the people that we want, but at every attempt that we can, at every opportunity that we get, we will make attempts to subpoena these people to come in and speak.”

The Washington Examiner points out:

Nunes, the ranking member of the committee, cautioned he has little hope in Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., taking him up on the request made during last week’s closed business meeting, but he stressed that plans are moving forward regardless to investigate alleged political bias in the FBI.

…He also said the GOP minority will ask people to come in voluntarily and speak.

In January, Nunes told Fox News host Tucker Carlson that he and his Republican colleagues will continue to investigate allegations of bias and misconduct within the FBI, and even make criminal referrals to the Department of Justice.

While the Congressman would not name anyone specific, Carlson suggested former FBI agent Peter Strzok and former FBI Director James Comey as possible candidates for criminal referrals.

Nunes also said that he doesn’t think much will get accomplished with the referrals until a new attorney general is in place.

“Don’t forget, Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) actually made a referral on Christopher Steele–the British agent who worked for the Clinton campaign. He was referred. Nothing is happening to him,” he said. “So, I think until there’s a new AG that gets in there and starts to clean this up, I think its going to be tough for the American people to have confidence in what’s happening over there.”

Shady Hypocrite Adam Schiff Met with Fusion GPS Founder in July 2018

House Intelligence Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) met with Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson at a Aspen “social event” and never bothered to tell his colleagues on the committee–a standard he hypocritically set for his Republican counterpart, Rep. Devin Nunes (CA).

John Solomon of the Hill reports that photographs taken at a prestigious July 2018 Aspen media event show Schiff meeting with Simpson.

He writes:
“At the time of the encounter, Simpson was an important witness in the House Intelligence Committee probe who had given sworn testimony about alleged, but still unproven, collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign.

Simpson ran the firm hired by Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic Party to find dirt on Trump in Moscow. He employed retired British intelligence operative Christopher Steele, whose infamous and unverified dossier became the main evidence for the FBI’s probe of the Trump campaign, particularly the surveillance warrant against Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

And by the time of the meeting, the House Intelligence Committee had already received evidence from a senior Justice Department official, Bruce Ohr, that called into question Simpson’s testimony to lawmakers.

Both Schiff’s office and Simpson’s responded to Solomon with statements:

Schiff spokesman, Patrick Boland wrote, “The chairman did not have any pre-planned meeting with Glenn Simpson, and any conversation with him at the Aspen conference would have been brief and social in nature.”

Fusion GPS wrote, “In the summer of 2018, Mr. Simpson attended a media-sponsored social event where he exchanged small talk with Rep. Schiff and many other people who were in attendance. The conversation between the two was brief and did not cover anything substantive. There has been no subsequent contact between Mr. Simpson and Rep. Schiff.”

While Solomon notes there is nothing illegal or improper about a congressman meeting a witness in an ongoing investigation, Schiff’s encounter smacks of hypocrisy: Two years ago Schiff wanted then-Chairman Nunes to be investigated for meeting with National Security Council officials at the White House without notifying the committee.

Schiff said “I believe the public cannot have the necessary confidence that matters involving the president’s campaign or transition team can be objectively investigated or overseen by the chairman,”

Schiff’s spokesman declined to answer if the congressman disclosed his meeting with Simpson to the committee, however, multiple sources told Solomon that there was no evidence of his doing so.

President Trump reacted to the news today, tweeting, “Now we find out that Adam Schiff was spending time together in Aspen with Glenn Simpson of GPS Fusion [sic], who wrote the fake and discredited Dossier, even though Simpson was testifying before Schiff. John Solomon of @thehill”

Rep Jordan: “Three Key Facts” From Ohr’s Testimony that Disprove Schiff Memo

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) of of the House Oversight Committee joined Fox New’s Maria Bartiromo on Sunday and discussed the “three key facts” from DOJ official Bruce Ohr’s testimony to Congress that “disprove” Rep. Adam Schiff’s memo.

“Adam Schiff did his memo one year ago,” he reminded Bartiromo.  “And remember his memo was to try to undermine what Devin Nunes and his memo had to say. In Schiff’s memo…he says the Republicans ‘mischaracterize’ the influence of Bruce Ohr on the whole process and talk about a misleading timeline relative to Mr. Ohr,” the Congressman said.

Jordan stated the “three key facts” Ohr shared in his August 28, 2018 Congressional deposition that contradict Schiff’s memo were:

  1. “He said first of all Fusion was connected to the Clinton Campaign, Fusion GPS that put together the dossier.”
  2. “He said my wife Nellie Ohr worked for Fusion GPS.”
  3. “And the person Fusion hired, Christopher Steele, has deep bias against the president. So much so that Christopher Steele told Bruce Ohr himself…that Christopher Steele was “desperate” to stop Trump.”

Schiff’s memo,  Jordan reminds us, specifically states that Bruce Ohr only communicated dossier-related information with the FBI after the 2016 election and after the October 21 FISA application was delivered to the FISA Court.

“That is not accurate based on Bruce Ohr’s testimony to us in his deposition,” Jordan said.

“The most important fact, Maria, is that he communicated those key pieces of information to the FBI and DOJ prior to the election, more importantly prior to when the FBI and Department of Justice went to the FISA court to get the warrant to spy on Trump’s campaign. That is huge.”

Donald Trump Jr. Trolls Adam Schiff After Congressman’s Trump Tower Theory Debunked

The mainstream media gleefully reported last May that Donald Trump Jr. called a blocked number before and after his now-infamous Trump Tower meeting with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya in 2016.

Of course, this led many to speculate whether or not Trump Jr. called his father, then-presidential candidate, Donald Trump to discuss the details of the meeting.

House Intelligence Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) told CNN in November, “We wanted to get the phone records to determine, was Donald Trump talking to his son about this meeting. It’s an obvious investigative step, but one the Republicans were unwilling to take because they were afraid of where the evidence might lead.”

Now, new evidence completely debunks the story which liberals hoped would help “build an obstruction of justice case” against President Trump.

The Daily Caller reports:

The Senate Intelligence Committee obtained phone records showing Donald Trump Jr. did not speak with his father from a blocked telephone number in the days before the infamous Trump Tower meeting in June 2016.

The finding, first reported by CNN, undercuts Democrats’ theory Trump Jr. might have told his father in those phone calls about the Trump Tower meeting, which was held June 9, 2016, with a group of Russians who had offered dirt on Hillary Clinton….

Phone records provided to the Senate Intelligence panel shows the calls were between Trump Jr. and two business associates, according to CNN.

The calls were made in the days before the Trump Tower meeting. Another call occurred several hours after the meeting. The identity of the business associates is not clear.

Responding to an ABC News report on Twitter, Trump Jr. wrote, “Has anyone heard from Adam Schiff? I imagine he’s busy leaking other confidential info from the House Intelligence Committee to change the subject?!? #FullOfSchiff”

President Trump also weighed in on the report, tweeting, “Just out: The big deal, very mysterious Don jr telephone calls, after the innocent Trump Tower meeting, that the media & Dems said were made to his father (me), were just conclusively found NOT to be made to me. They were made to friends & business associates of Don. Really sad!”
