When Democrats were swept back into power in November, they immediately went to work destroying Trump.
Now, just under a month after taking control of the House, they’re working harder than ever to take him down.
And Pelosi’s top lieutenant just jumped off the deep end in his quest to topple Trump.
It’s no secret Democrats hate President Trump.
After campaigning against him in 2018 and sweeping back into control of the House of Representatives last November, Democrats almost immediately got to work in their mission to destroy the President.
However, just under a month after retaking control of one house of Congress, Democrats are starting to run into headway in their mission to ruin the President.
And that has left one of Nancy Pelosi’s top agents scrambling to take control of the situation.
Earlier this month, President Trump’s ex-lawyer Michael Cohen agreed to testify to the House Intelligence Committee.
However, he just backed out of the deal to speak to the committee, headed by Congressman Adam Schiff (D-CA), with just weeks to go before his scheduled testimony.
Schiff was having none of it.
The Democratic Congressman just jumped off the deep end by issuing this order that left Cohen stunned.
CNBC reported, “The Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday subpoenaed Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s former personal lawyer, to testify. The hearing before the committee is scheduled for Feb. 12, said a source with direct knowledge of the matter close to Cohen.”
Cohen is set to surrender himself to Federal officials in March to serve a three-year prison sentence after he pled guilty to multiple charges brought forth against him thanks to the Robert Mueller probe.
Cohen had tried to backtrack on his planned testimony to the committee earlier, which had been originally set for February 7th.
The justification he gave were threats directed against him and his family.
However, Schiff decided to use the committee’s subpoena power to force Cohen to testify anyway.
The move comes as a disappointment to Schiff, who had hoped to portray the testimony as Trump’s ex-lawyer willingly talking to Congressional Democrats and betraying his former boss, the current President of the United States.
The public relations coup that such a testimony would bring, and that the betrayal of Cohen against Trump would signal, could have been immense.
Now, it’s obvious Cohen is testifying by force, under threats from Congress and from Congressman Schiff in particular.
“It is not clear if Cohen’s testimony before the GOP-run Senate Intelligence Committee will be public or in a closed session,” adds CNBC.
Cohen’s own legal advisor, Lanny Davis, is a former Clinton lawyer and notable Democratic operative.
Davis has called for Trump’s impeachment and for the House of Representatives to censure the President for alleged “witness tampering.” He has also called for criminal investigations into Trump’s current lawyer, Rudy Giuliani.
It’s unclear what, if anything, Cohen will say at his upcoming testimony.
Democrats are obviously hoping for the ex-Trump lawyer to implicate the President in multiple alleged crimes.
