Schiff did say that he is still interested in getting as much information from Michael Cohen as possible.
“We continue to encourage Mr. Cohen to provide us any materials that he has that are relevant to our investigation,” Schiff said. “We will continue to do so and hope that he has additional information to offer.”
President Trump’s former lawyer-turned-rat Michael Cohen offered Democrats ‘more dirt’ last Thursday in an attempt to stay out of prison for a little bit longer or reduce his sentence.
Cohen’s sewer-dwelling, Clinton-linked lawyer, Lanny Davis said in a statement that his client recently obtained a hard drive with 14 million files from his computers over the past 10 years.
Lanny Davis argued that the 14 million files could spur additional investigations and the new findings could provide “significant value to the various congressional oversight and investigation committees.”
Cohen’s lawyers argued their client needs more time to analyze the information in the files and asked to postpone his incarceration by “about four weeks”
Michael Cohen was sentenced to 36 months in prison in December for lying to Congress, ‘violating campaign finance law’ (he didn’t) and crimes related to his taxi medallion business.
Cohen was originally scheduled to report to prison on March 6th, and his incarceration was already pushed back to May 6th.
Schiff and the Dems are so desperate to smear Trump that they will take anything they can from a proven liar like Michael Cohen.
