Schumer: Trump Tweet About Russia Probe Should Concern GOP

Ellis Copeland | 13 January, 2018, 05:42

Schiff blamed the chairman of the House intelligence committee, Republican Rep. Devin Nunes, for the fact that the committee has interviewed "less than half of the number of witnesses" as the Senate intelligence committee, which is also conducting a Russian Federation probe, maintaining that "the chairman has a different agenda", PBS News Hour reported.

Schiff, the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, fired back Thursday. Among the witnesses he wants to interview: Ivanka Trump, plus he says the panel should consider issuing a subpoena to Trump Jr. for information he withheld during his classified hearing a year ago.

"It's probably illegal, what he's doing".

The White House declined to comment on Schiff's accusations.

Schiff said the committee has interviewed a total of 56 witnesses, less than half of the number of people interviewed by the Senate intelligence committee.

"We see that to be a big problem and something that should certainly be considered and looked at". Schiff says the GOP should agree to subpoena for that information if Trump Jr. does not provide details to the committee. But leaks have been a constant theme during the committee's probe, which began in January. "[Dianne] Feinstein [D-Calif.] and Rep. Schiff, who have both selectively leaked to the media witness interviews".

Then there were some ads that tried to trick the user into giving up their phone number by telling them that they had won a prize. Check Point says the "malicious code's own ad library... contains ads of an offensive nature, including pornographic ads".


Mueller's appointment enjoyed bipartisan support, although as the probe has continued, more Trump allies have joined the President in trying to discredit it.

Trump said his message to congressional Republicans, while perceived as a call to end the investigations into collusion, was nothing more than him asking his party to "be tough".

An unidentified source told CNN that Trump Jr. and members of the Trump Organization were sent an email on September 4, 2016 with a link to documents stolen from the DNC.

"The fact that we have not had any kind of public visibility on "follow-the-money issues" is a very significant deficiency of the inquiry", Wyden said. CNN reported the "bombshell" for hours before Trump Jr.'s attorney released a copy of the actual email. That was a day after the stolen DNC documents had been released publicly.

CNN has not yet revealed who its sources were for the erroneous story.

"All the press that have dealt with me in this investigation know, often to their frustration, that I don't discuss the contents of our investigative interviews", Schiff told Jake Tapper. "Being attacked by the President's propagandist is a badge of honor that I'm proud to share with Senator Feinstein", he said in a statement.
