Adam Schiff told CBS’ Face the Nation today that Donald Trump is likely to be indicted once he leaves office. Now for you Trump lovers who will jump in and argue about impeachment, that’s not what he’s referring to.
Schiff said the court documents suggest that the “president of the United States not only coordinated, but directed an illegal campaign scheme” to alter the outcome of the 2016 election. Asked if the revelations in the filings meet the standard for an impeachable offense, Schiff demurred and said more investigative work needs to be completed by the House Intelligence Committee and special counsel Robert Mueller, particularly on any possible collusion or coordination between Trump campaign associates and the Russian government.
And I do think this is a very real possibility given the papers filed on Friday.
