Schiff Statement on Michael Cohen

Washington, March 6, 2019

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, released a statement following Michael Cohen’s closed door testimony:

"We appreciate Mr. Cohen coming before the House Intelligence Committee for a second day as part of our ongoing investigation.

"Mr. Cohen's full cooperation came despite the not so thinly veiled threats emanating from the President and his allies. No person, especially not the President or his surrogates, should ever try to intimidate witnesses, scare their families, or seek to prevent them from testifying before Congress.

"While we will not discuss the substance of his testimony at this time, Mr. Cohen cooperated fully with the Committee, answered every question we asked of him during both interview sessions, and provided important testimony and materials relevant to the core of our probe and that will allow us to advance our investigation substantially. We look forward to his continued cooperation with Congress and law enforcement."
