Some context, per today's weird SSCI-Cohen testimony bit.
Senate Intel has been SOOO frustrated in recent weeks by the constant dribble of leaks about who's testifying to them, when.
There was a real come-to-Jesus at SSCI in June, after leaks out of the Comey hearing. Tl;dr was, stop leaking or you'll screw everything up.
So this constant barrage of "this person is appearing before SSCI on this day" or release of testimony has majorly irked them. On all sides.
The SSCI read is, Trumpster lawyers will leak info about upcoming appearances, blame the committee, then use as a pretext not to cooperate.
After Cohen started sending talking to the media over the last few days, SSCI had had enough.
Cancelling & forcing him to testify openly is a very clear signal flare to the rest of Team Trump. And, it's been a loooooong time coming.
