Adam Schiff Vows to Ramp Up Russia Probe if Dems Retake the House
Ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee Adam Schiff vowed to ramp-up the Russia probe should his party retake control of the House this November; saying he will investigate “money laundering” and get more “answers” on the Trump campaign’s alleged “collusion.”
Schiff was speaking with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer when he was asked if he would ratchet up the investigation if he becomes the Chair of the Intelligence Committee after the 2018 midterm elections.
“The question, though, that I don’t know whether Mueller has been able to answer — because I don’t know whether he’s been given the license to look into it — were the Russians laundering money through the Trump Organization?” he asked.
“And that will be a very high priority to get an answer to. For the reason that if they were doing this, it’s not only a crime, but it’s something provable,” he added. “We will be able to get answers the Republicans were unwilling to pursue. Records that the Republicans wouldn’t ask for.”
