Pantomime Continues – Senate Intelligence Committee Subpoenas Michael Cohen…

Yes, the most corrupt Senate committee; at the epicenter of the legislative corruption within the ‘spygate’ fiasco; joins the resistance effort, and files a subpoena to compel testimony from Michael Cohen.

It must be remembered that SSCI Chairman Richard Burr and SSCI Vice-Chair Mark Warner, have previously admitted they are closely coordinating their efforts with Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

(CNN) President Donald Trump’s former personal lawyer Michael Cohen was subpoenaed Thursday to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee in mid-February, a source close to Cohen told CNN.

It is not clear how Cohen will respond. The source said that Cohen has the same concerns regarding the safety of his family that led him to postpone his scheduled public appearance before the House Oversight Committee next month. Senate Intelligence traditionally does their interviews behind closed doors, not publicly.

Senate Intelligence Chairman Richard Burr, a North Carolina Republican, declined to comment on the subpoena. A spokeswoman for the committee also declined to comment. (read more)

Apparently CNN received the information from Cohen’s handler, Lanny Davis. Cohen is currently scheduled to deliver public testimony on February 7th, to the House Oversight Committee (Elijah Cummings); and, according to their released statements, Cohen will also give closed-door testimony to the House Intelligence Committee (Adam Schiff).

Lanny Davis proclaimed (without evidence) yesterday that Cohen was being threatened by President Trump.  This framework is likely part of a publicity narrative to further the larger ‘obstruction‘ premise that underlines the impeachment need (Nadler).

As the narrative is being sold Cohen does not want to testify. However, adding weight to the likelihood Cohen’s prison deferment is part of an agreement to testify, Chairman Schiff and Chairman Cummings saidnot appearing is not an option“.  According to Cummings there was prior agreement between himself, Schiff and Cohen:

[…] when our Committees began discussions with Mr. Cohen’s attorney, not appearing before Congress was never an option. We will not let the President’s tactics prevent Congress from fulfilling our constitutionally mandated oversight responsibilities. (link)

Again, there is very little doubt the approach has already been mapped out in post-election meetings between: Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, the Democrat committee heads, allies in the lawfare community, political allies inside the executive branch (IC, DOJ, FBI etc.), along with feedback from political networks, DNC (Perez) and major resistance donors.  All the evidence to support this strategy was outlined in Speaker Pelosi’s Rules.

This was worked out months ago.  Michael Cohen’s deferred prison sentence is part of this planning and coordination.  Yes, the current DOJ helped coordinate and plan. It is virtually guaranteed the DOJ (SDNY) and Robert Mueller team members met with select emissaries of congressional democrats, Lawfare and media.  Together they had this outline drawn up immediately following the mid-term election.

It should be noted Mr. Cohen is being represented at committee hearings by DNC operative Lanny Davis. However, Mr. Lanny Davis is not being paid by Mr. Cohen; he is being paid by democrat groups supporting the ‘resistance’ strategy.

Reference Information:

“If they go down the presidential harassment track, if they want go and harass the president and the administration, I think that would be the best thing that would happen to me. I’m a counter-puncher and I will hit them so hard they’d never been hit like that,” he said during a 36-minute Oval Office sitdown.

The commander-in-chief said he could declassify FISA warrant applications and other documents from Robert Mueller’s probe — and predicted the disclosure would expose the FBI, the Justice Department and the Clinton campaign as being in cahoots to set him up.

“I think that would help my campaign. If they want to play tough, I will do it. They will see how devastating those pages are.”

But Trump told The Post he wanted to save the documents until they were needed.

“It’s much more powerful if I do it then,” Trump said, “because if we had done it already, it would already be yesterday’s news.”

Trump revealed his playbook just as Democrats are set to take over House committees in January where they are poised to investigate his potential business conflicts of interests, tax returns, Russia dealings and more.   (read more)

    You know, after all these months watching Trump-Russia ebb and flow, I read this at link below and think to myself, You know what? All this fuss, because the CIA and FBI got mousetrapped by a simple, standard Russian disinformation operation. That’s what Mueller et al is covering up: their own unintelligence and incompetence. And who has benefited? Donald Trump.

    BTW, I’ve checked out The Epoch Times and what appears to be a sister or at least cousin site, WhatFinger, thinking they might be ChiCom PLA opiating operations. A WhatFinger editor signing “Mike” says Epoch Times is Taiwanese, ex-mil guys behind it, strongly anti-Communist. From the site’s content I think that makes sense. My inquiry was triggered by Epoch Times’s “About” page saying founders are ex-mil without saying of which country or branch.

      We’ve got them–The Steele Dossier includes blackmail on Hillary controlled by Putin. If it is true about Trump the Dossier is true about Hillary.

      “Another noteworthy claim of the Orbis report is that Vladimir Putin personally directed Russia’s intervention in the 2016 campaign: ‘The TRUMP operation was both supported and directed by Russian President Vladimir Putin. Its aim was to sow discord both within the U.S. itself, but more especially within the Transatlantic alliance.’ The Orbis report claims that Putin personally controlled the dossier compiled on Hillary Clinton and held by his spokesperson, Peskov. He ordered that any disposition of the Clinton file would be decided by him personally.”

      Also note the MOTIVE for Putin’s operation is not to elect Trump but to “sow discord both within the U.S. Itself, but more especially within the Transatlantic alliance.”

      We now have the Dossier exactly where we want it. BOTH candidates were subject to Kremlin blackmail according to the Dossier itself. I’m off to Twitter to start giving the Democrats over there the BAD NEWS. Everyone here do the same all over the Internet.

      They are caught in a bottle.

      You don’t know who Sundance is either, but (very rightly so) consume his information without question.

      Bongino credits Carlson with excellence (as he does CTH), and Bongino is pretty spot on.

      It’s good to question, but in this audience we have done the leg work for you so either take our word for it, or as BigMama says below – you got some reading to do..

        Sundance, Bongino, Carlson, etc…. evidence.
        Clinton Cabal…. no evidence.
        MSM…. no evidence, except of lying much of the time.

    Cohen’s declining to testify is like a bad high school play. Come on, he fears for his family as Trump’s gunna git ’em? His FBI benefactors have a higher body count than Trump, yet he’s worried about the guy who paid him?

    I’d like to have been a fly on the wall when the Bureau made a ‘deal’ with Cohen. Come on, between the Bureau and BOP they could have told Cohen to start creative writing or they’d tie a bow on him and toss him into the Toys R Us section of a Federal pen. Hmmmmm…lemme see…guest of honor in a Fed pen shower party or a few years in a Club Fed with a parole once things die down. Inquiring minds want to know.

      I think that’s just an excuse for him not to testify. Cohen was threatened by Mueller already. They either don’t want him to testify or want to delay the testimony and that was just the flimsy excuse.

        I just hope he brought a lotta soap for shower time. If you’re gonna be a slimy NY lawyer and run with the big guys you’re going to have to be a soldier and stay loyal to your client or the number of folks out to put you into the meat grinder will be greater.
