New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Michael Cohen performed a dance on Friday that appeared as if it was choreographed.
The 29-year-old asked Cohen questions at his hearing on Wednesday related to President Donald Trump’s finances.
And Cohen walked lock step with her giving her the exact answers that she wanted causing many to believe the interaction was scripted.
The Daily Mail reported on her questions and Cohen’s answers.
Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: "Did the President ever provide inflated assets to an insurance company?"

Ocasio-Cortez kept her questions to Cohen short and to the point – unlike many of her colleagues on the House Oversight and Reform Committee who used their questioning time to make political points.
The freshman Democrat kept her focus on the money and whether there could have been financial fraud on the part of the president.
She inquired if the president was interested in lowering his real estate taxes.
When Cohen replied in the affirmative, she asked how that would be done.
‘You deflate the value of the asset and then you put in a request to the tax department for a destruction,’ he said in response.
She stayed on financial issues for nearly all her questioning as she laid the groundwork for the committee to continue and expand its investigation of the president’s business empire.
‘Where would the committee find more information on this? Do you think we need to review his financial statements and tax returns in order to compare them?,’ she asked.
‘Yes, and you would find it at the Trump Org,’ Cohen told her.
She also set up the possibility of the committee using its subpoena power to obtain the president’s tax records and other financial documents.
Ocasio-Cortez inquired if it ‘would it help for the committee to obtain federal and state returns from the president and his company to address that?’
‘I believe so,’ Cohen told her in her four minutes of questioning.
That whole testimony was scripted from that scumbag Lannie Davis. RE-watch Cortez questions and how quickly the answers came back. AOC is to stupid to ask those questions. Davis is ten times worse that Cohen ever thought of being! He orchestrated this event! Disgusting!

Good little puppy, have a treat! All those smiling faces behind Cohen knew you had stuck to the script, followed the dancing ball, read your lines with a straight face, wow! Lobbyists are already fighting over you!

Boy,…… you better quit cat calling her LOL. That's hilarious. Did you see that pathetic script somebody wrote for her at the Cohen hearing. You know she cannot articulate herself that well. @AOC
