First, the Democrats bring in a former Trump lawyer to smear the President…
…now they want to ‘interview’ his kids, with pretty much the same objective.
But, unwittingly, Democrat committee chairman Cummings – when he mentioned that plan to interview Ivanka and Trump Jr. – let the cat out of the bag on why he was so restrictive about what Republicans weren’t allowed to bring up in the Cohen hearing.
“All you have to do is follow the transcript. If there are names that were mentioned or records that were mentioned during the hearing, we want to take a look at all of that.“
Got that? That’s what Cummings told reporters, regarding follow-on interviews.
By restricting Republicans asking about the Mueller investigation, or partisan Justice Dept and FBI deep-stater activities, embarrassing follow-on interviews were avoided.
Or, were they?
In Cummings own words…“If there are names that were mentioned or records that were mentioned during the hearing, we want to take a look at all of that.”
So, did the name Steele, Strzok, Page, Clapper, Brennan, Comey, McCabe, DNC, Hillary, Simpson, or FusionGPS get mentioned? Emails, texts, dossier, leakers, etc?
We encourage Republicans to review every word during the Cohen hearing, because if any mention was made as an aside or reference, then let the real games begin.
Our guess is, if any were mentioned, Democrats will fight very hard not to include them.
Because their definition of ‘oversight’ doesn’t include Democrat chicanery.
