People keep asking over and over, "Why would Schiff and the left have a convicted liar before congress as a witness?"

Easy answer.

Schiff wanted Cohen on the record to congress to parrot a list of names, to give him a hook to subpoena and go after the Trump family.
Think about that testimony. First he's given 32 minutes to ready a prepared statement that he didn't even write. He was reading that word for word from prepared text.

In his own language

"we were up until after midnight making edits to his testimony."

He was reading a script
Everyone else in the room is restricted to 5 minutes and they give him 32 minutes layout exactly what they wanted to set the narrative for the entire hearing.

The left tabled any push back from the right and waived most of the parliamentary rules to allow them to freelance.
The Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.

Can you think of one question in that 3 hour fiasco that fell under the scope of "Oversight and Government Reform"?

Trump organization business dealings prior to Trump being POTUS have nothing to do with Government.
Notice they never even touched on the Trump International Hotel doing business right up the street from the White House. They've already beat the dead horse, on the the so-called emoluments clause. There are literally a 100 lawsuits challenging that, & the keep getting dismissed
So they needed some groundwork laid to go after the Presidents kids and not look like the total lynch mob they are. They have nothing legally to go after them through the committee, so the drag Cohen up there in front of the cameras in one of three hearings to set probable cause
In closing Cohen makes the claim if Trump loses in 2020 he won't give up the White House peacefully.....

Straight from the Democrat talking points.

They claimed Trump wouldn't accept the election results

Hillary & the left still hasn't accepted it
Think about the 6 exhibits that Cohen presented to the committee. When asked by Clay Higgins where he obtained these items that he was presenting as evidence of a crime, he said from boxes that were returned to him from the SDNY raid on his home and storeroom.
Does ANYONE seriously think the the SDNY would return and real evidence of criminal behavior by the POTUS to Cohen if it was really worth anything to build a case?

Not a chance.
Think of the Cohen hearing is this light and it really makes sense.

The entire current case against Trump was based off of circular reporting to try and build their case. They wrote the dossier, planted the story with Isikoff, Smith & Corn, then went from there.
Now to head in a different direction, they get the slimy former bag-man of the POTUS to go under oath and layout the precedent for the direction they want to take the investigation next. They aren't investigating a crime, they are investigating a person hoping to find a crime.
This investigation isn't so much focused on finding crime, though they will pounce on any shred they can find, it's main objective is to try and influence the vote in 2020 and slow down the POTUS from doing his job.
