Top House Intel Dem Is Set To Go After Trump If Democrats Win The House: ‘It’s A Priority’
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the top Democrat in the House Intelligence Committee said on Wednesday that he plans on reigniting the Russia investigation and prioritizing an investigation into the Trump Organization’s ties to Russia if Democrats win the House in November.
“There was one issue we were not allowed to look at and the Senate hasn’t been either that concerns me a great deal and that is the issue of whether Russians were laundering money through the Trump Organization and [if] that is the leverage they have over the president,” Schiff told The Hill.
“Someone needs to determine whether those allegations are true or they are not. That certainly would be a priority for me.”
Schiff went on to comment on the Republicans in the Intelligence Committee that ended the Russia probe after just one year.
“It is ongoing and it will continue if we are in the majority with the power of subpoena,” Schiff said.
“We never closed the Russia investigation. A few months ago the Republicans decided they were going to end their participation. They were solely going to focus on investigating investigators. But we continue to bring in witness and review documents,” Schiff added.
