According to The Hill, Rep. Adam Schiff (Calif.), the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, previously accused Republicans of attempting to block witnesses from answering certain questions in an effort to protect President Trump.
“As you know, they would frequently interject with the witness when we were asking them questions, ‘You know you don’t have to answer that question,'” Schiff said
Now Schiff, together with other top democrats had clearly tempered with Micheal Cohen, in order to smear president Trump.
