#1 Is the legal term for this called 'suborning perjury'? This asshole can't leave the political stage fast enough.

#3 Oops, Raj got there first... exactly my first thought.

When will our Shitshow masters be called out for coaching people on how to lie before Congress?

Blow-sey Ford.
Now Volker.

How many times can they get away with this garden-variety felony?

Is there some kind of congressional immunity against suborning perjury?

#4 In a court room setting (not a kangaroo court) this would be called leading the witness and stopped by an honest judge.

#5 stopped by an honest judge.

But that’s the point. This isn’t even pre-trial posturing on the courthouse steps, this is posturing before it even goes before the grand jury. They’re functionally just interviewing witnesses in the office before deciding who they’ll use to present their case.

#6 Unbelievable.
How many times will they pull this stunt before it's shut down?

#7 #5 trailing wife, I get it, kind of like a communist "show trial" but even worse.

#8 Not even a show trial if they're doing it all in closed hearings. They're just looking for any little tidbit that they can leak out of context to make Trump look bad.

#9 Well, if Barak-the-most-transparent-adminstration-ever-Obama was still in the White House, this whole show would be on prime-time teevee.
