House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) on Monday evening said there is evidence “in plain sight” of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
“There was a big difference between whether there was evidence of collusion — and I think that evidence is in plain sight — and whether you can establish proof beyond a reasonable doubt of a criminal conspiracy,” he told CNN.
Schiff also questioned whether Attorney General William Barr would be able to come to an unbiased conclusion about special counsel Robert Mueller’s findings.
“You have [an] attorney general who applied for the job by talking down any potential obstruction conviction or indictment who then went to a Senate confirmation and refused to recuse himself,” Schiff said. “He has now done the job he applied for, which is attempt to exonerate Mr. Trump. That ought to deeply concern people.”
Asked Schiff tonight if he would drop his probe after Mueller didn't find a Trump-Russia conspiracy, and he said: "Our investigation has always focused on counterintelligence issues, that is, is the president or anyone around him compromised in some way. That work has to go on." pic.twitter.com/JIEKIgveX3
