Nunes Slams Cohens Meeting with Schiff: “Collusion Is Right in Front of Us”
‘No matter how much witness tampering you do, you’re not going to find collusion,’ Former House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes told ‘Fox & Friends’ after sources say President Trump’s former personal attorney met with the Intelligence Committee chairman for hours before testifying.
Sources allege that that Schiff’s staff covered various topics with Cohen before his testimony on Capitol Hill, many which were brought up during the House Oversight Committee public hearing, according to Fox News.
Cohen hesitantly acknowledged, under questioning from Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan during last month’s House Oversight Committee public hearing, that he had spoken with Schiff: “about topics that were going to be raised at the upcoming hearing.”
“The extent of my contact was just inviting him to testify and also trying to allay his concerns about the President’s threats against him and his family, but our staff certainly sat down to interview him and that’s what you do in any credible investigation,” Schiff said on CBS’ “Face The Nation.”
Nunes said Friday that the last two weeks have been “all about rolling out a new narrative.” He added: “No matter how much witness tampering you do, you’re not going to find collusion in this unless you talk about the collusion the Democratic Party and the Clinton campaign were doing with Russians.”
He later noted that there are prosecutors on Mueller’s special counsel team who were involved in the Democrats’ election-year scheme to frame the Trump campaign with dirt from the Clinton and DNC-funded Steele dossier.
“The Mueller team is part of the collusion,” Nunes argued. “They were taking information that supposedly came directly from Russians.”
It’s not illegal for members of Congress to talk to witnesses beforehand, but in a serious investigation, both Republican and Democrat lawyers meet the lawyers of the witness. “In this case, it sounds like they were just meeting with the witness himself, and this is not a serious investigation,” he said.
