Adam Schiff Just Made a Mysterious Move On Michael Cohen’s Case
Democratic Congressman Adam Schiff (D-CA) on Wednesday abruptly announced that the closed-door hearing for former Trump “fixer” Michael Cohen had been delayed for at least another few weeks.
“In the interests of the investigation, Michael Cohen’s testimony has been postponed until February 28th,” Schiff said without further elaboration.
Cohen had originally been scheduled to give sworn testimony behind closed doors this Friday. He is scheduled to report to prison on March 6th after pleading guilty to multiple counts of tax and bank fraud, including making an illegal campaign contribution at the direction of President Donald Trump.
We can only speculate on the motives, but experts believe the investigation is expanding as more evidence emerges.
Legal analysts say the move indicates federal prosecutors are investigating other subjects linked to Cohen.

Special counsel Robert Mueller’s references to “uncharged individuals” in recent court filings that aim to restrict certain evidence are being read by some as an indication more people could be indicted in his sprawling investigation.
Despite rampant speculation that Mueller is close to finalizing his report, the language used in court documents over the past few months offers clues that suggest his probe might ensnare more individuals.
