"What difference, at this point, does it make?"
James Clapper: "I responded in what I thought was the most truthful, or least untruthful manner..."
Lois Lerner: "I have not done anything wrong; I have not broken any laws; I've been advised by my counsel to assert my constitutional right not to testify or answers questions...."
"GOWDY: Good morning, Director Comey. Secretary Clinton said she never sent or received classified information over her private e-mail. Was that true?
COMEY: Our investigation found that there was classified information sent —"
Wait, do you actually think that anyone who has ever gone in front of investigators or congress from any administration wasn't coached by legal counsel? If so, I have a bridge to sell you.
All administrations coach it's members before their appearance before house committees. Move on to the next story!
News .... Lawyer coaches witness? Every lawyer goes through possible questions their witnesses might face during trial and how to handle them .... even the prosecution
All of this is a created distraction for political gain and to undermine the voters wishes.
What counsel does not coach clients/people the represent?
"I don't recall" , does that sound familiar?
Regardless of who your party affiliation is, (I'm Independent wish they had a chance in this two party system) can we agree that Schalwell and Adam Schiff both from California have a hard time with actual facts and telling their constituents the truth. Let's put it this way, an average person on the street being interviewed would be deemed crazy if they said half the things that came out of Schalwell's mouth most of the time.
The point will be moot after McGhan leaves.
He has had 30 hours with The A Team. My guess is this has been addressed.
“Don McGahn was instructing different witnesses as to what they could say and could not say.”
That is what lawyers are supposed to do. A lawyer has an ethical obligation to prepare his clients before their for testimony, including advising the client of the legal ramifications of their testimony. Not doing so is legal malpractice and should result in disbarment.
Show me a lawyer that doesn't coach his clients before testifying and I'll show you a lawyer that probably loses most of his/her cases.
Coaching is something all council does. This is standard operating procedure.
