Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, January 14, 2019

Don't obstruct. That was the message from three top Democrats to President Donald Trump on Sunday. In a joint statement, Reps. Elijah Cummings, Adam Schiff and Jerrold Nadler warned Trump against efforts to "discourage, intimidate or otherwise pressure" his former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, who has agreed to publicly testify Feb. 7 before the House Oversight Committee.

"The statement came in response to Trump's appearance on Saturday night on Fox News, when he told Jeanine Pirro that Cohen "should give information maybe on his father-in-law, because that's the one that people want to look at.

Trump added: "Because where does that money – that's the money in the family. And I guess he didn't want to talk about his father – he's trying to get his sentence reduced. So, it's pretty sad."

When Pirro asked for Cohen's father-in-law's name, Trump answered, "I don't know, but you'll find out, and you'll look into it because nobody knows what's going on over there."

#3 I love how this timeline packs so many season finale's into a year.
Apparently crowdsourcing a political intrigue series is more entertaining/interesting than what professional writers can produce.

What's Trump going to do? Have Vincenzo Pentangeli show up at Cohen's hearing? Given how moronic the Trump Crime Family is, Trump will instead try to have Ali G. show up and provide live commentary during Cohen's testimony...

Does Cohen get to stay out of jail until he testifies?

He has had a scheduled report to jail date for a while. It is after the day he is set to testify - so yes. I think it is Mid-February if memory serves.
