House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) said Tuesday that he had limited contacts with Michael Cohen, remarks that aimed to push back against GOP allegations Democrats met extensively with Cohen ahead of his scheduled testimony.

Schiff (D-Calif.) told reporters during a Christian Science Monitor Breakfast that there was a “brief phone call” with Cohen, his staff and his attorneys, in which the lawmaker says he worked to convince the president’s former personal lawyer to testify voluntarily, rather than under a subpoena.

The article goes on to state the following:

“I had a brief phone call with my staff, Mr. Cohen and his attorneys to encourage him to come and testify voluntarily and to try to allay the concerns that he had with the threats that he was receiving from the president, from the president’s allies in the Congress and outside the Congress,” Schiff said.

“We had a great desire to have him come in voluntarily, not under subpoena. If it were necessary to subpoena him, then there’s always the risk that the witness decides not to cooperate to take the Fifth or not provide the information that’s very pertinent investigation,” Schiff continued, noting that “proffer sessions are done in every credible investigation.”

    He can’t lie convincingly anymore. His staff met with Cohen for 10 hrs. I’m sure he was aware of every thing they coached him about
