One of the House Democrats who grilled Michael Cohen before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform explained which Donald Trump associates need to testify before Congress.
Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA) sits on the Oversight Committee, but also serves on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI).
On MSNBC’s “Hardball,” guest host Steve Kornacki noted that Cohen will testify before the House Intelligence Committee on Thursday.
“Anything you learned today that’s going to shape what you talk about him tomorrow?” Kornacki asked.
“What we learned today was that there was a relationship between Roger Stone and the president that continued all through the campaign, that there were conversations that took place all the time, that Michael Cohen’s testimony before the Intelligence Committee was reviewed and edited by attorneys for Donald Trump in the White House and was restricted,” Speier noted.
“All of that is suggesting that there is a grand conspiracy here,” she continued. “We need to follow up with many of these leads, but I think we’re getting closer and closer to being able to put all the puzzle pieces together.”
“Who do you want to hear from in testimony now that you haven’t yet heard from?” Kornacki asked.
“I want to hear from Jay Sekulow, Abbe Lowell, from Donald Trump, Jr. again, from Ivanka Trump, Steve Bannon should come back, Roger Stone should probably come back,” Speier replied.
“All of the very intense inner-circle of Donald Trump needs to come before the House Intelligence Committee,” she continued. “This is a very small universe of people that were involved in his campaign.”
