Schiff: Congress Would Take a Look at Mueller's Evidence 'if Necessary'

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., said Wednesday that while he does "wholly concur" with Speaker Nancy Pelosi's opinion that impeaching President Donald Trump would create divisions in the party, the Department of Justice still must release the results of special counsel Robert Mueller's extensive investigation to Congress.

"It's very hard to make the argument that the person who was directed and was coordinated should go to jail but the person who did the directing and did the coordinating should not", Schiff said at a Christian Science Monitor breakfast.

'So I think that militates very strongly in favor of indicting the president when he is out of office if the southern District of NY has the evidence to prove the case against Individual 1 [who] Michael Cohen identified as the president.

Trump says he never directed Cohen to violate the law and that the actions in Cohen's case don't even amount to wrongdoing. And knowing that the White House would drag out a fight over the subpoena, that may be an issue as well.

Current Justice Department orthodoxy is that a sitting president can not be indicted, but Schiff believes this needs to be reevaluated. "The public gets to see this report". "In its absence, impeachment becomes a partisan exercise in failure".

Thus far, despite several Trump campaign associates being handed indictments on process-related charges-matters unrelated or tangentially related to the Russian Federation investigation-no evidence has been publicly presented that would implicate Trump directly in any alleged collusion.

"And I've said all along that I don't think Bob Mueller should rely on written answers".

Speaking to MSNBC, Schiff, who chairs the committee and represents California, answered questions about the next steps for those investigating President Donald Trump's alleged ties to Russian Federation.

"That could take a number of forms, from phone records, to social media records, to other documentary evidence". He vowed to obtain phone records of Donald Trump Jr. because Democrats suspected they might entangle the elder Trump, but that did not prove to be so.

"Well, if there's insufficient evidence in the Mueller report and we're not able to produce sufficient evidence in our own investigation, that ends the inquiry", he said. Trump's comment came as CNN reported that the Justice Department may announce as early as next week that Mueller has given Barr his report on the probe. More than that, we have access in Congress to the supporting evidence.
