Schiff: Mueller Can Be Brought in If Report Isn't Released

  • FBI director testifies before the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington. Sept. 16

"We questioned him about the dangling of pardons and communication with the president or people on his team", said Schiff, whose committee heard Cohen's testimony behind closed doors.

"It's very hard to make the argument that the person who was directed and was coordinated should go to jail but the person who did the directing and did the coordinating should not", Schiff said at a Christian Science Monitor breakfast. "After all, he has said, 'It's not like I'm talking before a magistrate.' Well, maybe he should talk before a magistrate".

'So I think that militates very strongly in favor of indicting the president when he is out of office if the southern District of NY has the evidence to prove the case against Individual 1 [who] Michael Cohen identified as the president.

Schiff's comments echoed Pelosi's, who told The Washington Post recently, in the most unequivocal language yet, that she would not support impeachment because it wasn't worth the potential fallout.

'Given the documentary evidence, the cancelled checks, given the audio tapes, given the other witnesses who are cooperating with the special counsel, it certainly appears there's no shortage of evidence, ' said Schiff.

During the searches, the police said they found several containers of flammable materials, firecrackers and Molotov cocktails. The Palestinian Red Crescent reported two people hurt, while police said an officer suffered from smoke inhalation.

Further, he said, if the DOJ takes the position that a sitting president cannot be indicted, while not sharing information about Mueller's investigation with Congress so that it can determine if impeachment is warranted, "that amounts to immunity for the president", Schiff said. However, she also said she believed that Trump was "ethically" and "intellectually" unfit for the office.

'I'm not for impeachment.

"I think the country is worth it".

Adam Schiff has signaled what the Democrats' next plan of attack against President Trump could be if Robert Mueller's report falls short of collusion findings.

"The president was trying to negotiate the most lucrative business deal of his life during his presidential campaign, concealing it from the public, trying to get the Kremlin's help and knowing that if he crossed Putin, he would never get that money". "In its absence, impeachment becomes a partisan exercise in failure".
