Schiff: ‘Mistake’ Not to Subpoena President Trump

Adam Schiff says there is 'no shortage of evidence' to indict Trump AFTER he leaves office

Rep. Adam Schiff: ‘It’s a mistake’ for Mueller not to subpoena Trump

Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler told ABC's "This Week" the panel wanted to get documents from the Department of Justice, the president's son Donald Trump Jr. and Trump Organization chief financial officer Alan Weisselberg, among others.

The written answers didn't provide clarity on questions surrounding possible obstruction of justice into the Russian Federation investigation and Trump's attorney, Rudy Giuliani, later said his legal team wouldn't provide additional answers.

Ultimately, the length of Schiff's investigation could depend on the Mueller investigation, and whether the Justice Department releases the underlying evidence that the Mueller team has gathered.

After months of expressing certainty over a Trump impeachment-and even an indictment that would land the ex-president in prison-Schiff's softening of his stance could be the latest indicator that Democrats are expecting the findings of Special Counselor Robert Mueller to be underwhelming and anticlimactic.

Representative Adam Schiff speaks to the media after Michael Cohen, former attorney and fixer for President Donald Trump, appeared before a closed door House Intelligence Committee hearing in the basement of the House Visitors Center at the U.S. Capitol, on March 6.

"Our prominent concern on my committee is was this President, is this President, compromised by a foreign power?" he added.

"One of the issues that we are looking at, which the Mueller report may not cover, is whether the Russians were laundering money through the Trump Organization", he continued.

The congressman later said if neither Mueller nor Congress finds "sufficient evidence", they will end the conversation about impeachment.

Schiff also spoke about impeachment the day after Pelosi said it was "not worth" impeaching Trump.

Despite Pelosi's stated opinion, several Democratic representative have voiced plans to push forward with the impeachment process.

"I think the speaker is absolutely right", he said.

A party-line vote resulting in impeachment charges from the House would not be enough to remove Trump from office after a Senate trial.

At the same time, Schiff, a senior California Democrat, stood behind Speaker Nancy Pelosi's statement that she is "not for" impeaching Trump.
