Michael Cohen House Testimony Transcripts Released

Two transcripts of Michael Cohen's appearances before the House Intelligence Committee, previously under seal, were released today. Here is Adam Schiff's statement on why the Committee voted to release them.

Cohen’s February and March 2019 testimony corroborate information previously received by the Committee, including the Trump Tower Moscow deal under negotiation throughout the 2016 election season by then-candidate Donald Trump. Cohen also presented significant and troubling new detail regarding the false statement that he provided to our Committee in August 2017 and for which, in part, he is now in prison.

Since Cohen’s testimony, the Committee has already begun to follow up on information that Cohen provided related to attorneys for others involved in a joint defense agreement – including Jared Kushner and Donald Jr. and Ivanka Trump – to determine whether they aided in Cohen’s obstruction of the Committee’s investigation.

The February transcript is here, and the March transcript is here.

    ... are presently characterizing as slow and ineffective, is what I belive most attorneys call "exhausting all remedies" before petitioning the court for injunctive relief. That's what we're seeing occur here.

    Look, Trump's impeachment is inevitable. Speaker Nancy Pelosi knows that our best chance for a successful outcome is to avoid the appearance of being entirely too eager to pull the trigger on the ultimate of constitutional processes.

    And by standing firm under pressure and allowing the legal process to run its course by dotting every "i" and crossing every "t", Ms. Pelosi is actually strengthening the House's hand once the battle is squarely joined.

    not so much the legal process as the political theater of it. Pelosi needs to appear to be dragged into it.
