Rep. Schiff: WH's Attacks on Mueller Won't Stop Probe

Parmenio Sano | 19 Giugno, 2017, 04:04

Speaking on ABC's "This Week" on Sunday morning, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, told interviewers that Trump and his legal team want to "take down" Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

"I can say that there's enough that we ought to be investigation", Schiff said Sunday.

"I'm not prepared to say that there's proof you could take to a jury", Schiff told ABC News' Martha Raddatz on Sunday when asked if he's seen proof of collusion.

"They're essentially engaging in a scorched earth litigation strategy that is beginning with trying to discredit the prosecutor", he continued.

But Rubio - who sits on the Senate Intelligence Committee, which is investigating Russia's election interference - acknowledged that he never thought Trump would fire Comey, either. "His lawyer wants to take down Bob Mueller". This came days after a report that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who appointed Mueller, might be the next person to recuse himself from the investigation.


Speculation surrounding a potential Mueller firing ramped up last week, after a friend of the president's said that Trump was "weighing" whether to terminate the special counsel.

Schiff said the deputy attorney general would not need to recuse himself unless Mueller concludes that Rod Rosenstein's conduct "may be culpable in some way", regarding the president's firing of former FBI Director James Comey. I don't think we should acquiesce in the besmirchment of this good man.

Gingrich insisted repeatedly that there is "no evidence" of either obstruction of justice on the president's part or of collusion between Trump and the Russians.

Schiff added that he believes there is evidence of obstruction of justice related to the president's firing of Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey.
