Schiff Close to Issuing Subpoena for Mueller to Testify?
Trump-Russia conspiracy theorist and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) claims “time is running out” for former Special Counsel Robert Mueller to testify before Congress voluntarily.
During an appearance on CNN this morning, Schiff was asked how long he was willing to wait for Mueller to testify publicly.
“I think time is running out,” Schiff told replied. “The best way to get a witness to testify is if you can get them to testify voluntarily, and particularly I think with someone like Bob Mueller making an appeal to his patriotism, a sense of duty is the right way to go. But at the end of the day, he needs to come testify.”
When asked if August was “too late,” Schiff replied, “Yes, I think it is. I think we’re reaching a point where if we can’t reach an agreement, and I hope we will, then we’ll have to use a subpoena.”
