Representative Adam Schiff talked about Michael Cohen's closed testimony before House Intelligence —though he could not disclose much.
“We will be releasing the transcript, and we have to determine what the appropriate time for that is because there are other witnesses we want to interview, and making the testimony public will have an impact potentially on their testimony that we have to be concerned about,” he explained.
Schiff said that the Intelligence Committee and Congress are interested in whether Cohen has any further evidence to offer.
“In the open hearing, for example, he talked about how his testimony before our committee, the Intelligence Committee, was false,” he said. “He gave indications that others may have known that it was false at the time he provided it to Congress. Any documentary evidence that would help shed light on whether others participated in suborning perjury or false testimony is obviously very important to our investigation.”
But Schiff also said that Cohen has answered every question that the committee had for him.
“In other ways where we have asked for his further cooperation, in terms of any other documents of any other materials that he might have, he has expressed a willingness to go back through his belongings to try and find anything,” he explained.
