President Donald Trump's personal attorney Michael Cohen met with House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., several times before testifying before the panel last week, Fox News reports.

According to two unnamed sources, Cohen met with Schiff's staff in New York at least four times, for a total of 10 hours, before his appearance before the committee. Fox News reports Cohen and Schiff's staff discussed several of the topics that came up during the panel's hearing, including the National Enquirer's policy of stifling stories, the CEO of its parent company, American Media, and Trump's alleged actions regarding the value of his family business.

Rep. Mike Turner, R-Ohio, sent a letter to Cohen's legal team Wednesday requesting answers about his contacts "with Democratic Members or Democratic staff of SSCI [Senate Select Committee on Intelligence], COR [House Committee on Oversight and Reform], or HPSCI [House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence] prior to his appearances before House and Senate committees last week."

"These questions are important for the public to understand whether or not they were watching witness testimony, a public hearing, or well-rehearsed theater," he wrote.

Cohen admitted during his testimony before the House Oversight Committee last month that he had talked to Schiff "about topics that were going to be raised at the upcoming hearing."

A spokesperson for the House Intelligence Committee told Fox News: "We are running a professional investigation in search of the facts, and we welcome the opportunity to meet with potential witnesses in advance of any testimony to determine relevant topics to cover in order to make productive use of their time before the Committee."
