House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff issued more subpoenas to Trump campaign insiders this week; demanding former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn give testimony to Congressional Democrats.
“As part of our oversight work, the House Intelligence Committee is continuing to examine the deep counterintelligence concerns raised in Special Counsel Mueller’s report, and that requires speaking directly with the fact witnesses,” said Schiff Thursday.
“Schiff noted that both Flynn and Gates cooperated extensively with special counsel Robert Mueller as part of his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, but said that they have so far ‘refused to cooperate fully with Congress,’” reports the Hill.
House Intel Chair Adam Schiff continued his flat-out refusal to accept Robert Mueller’s final Russia report earlier this week; telling his Congressional colleagues the special counsel reached “no conclusion” on whether the Trump campaign “colluded” with the Kremlin.
“Volume one of the report outlines a sweeping and systemic effort by Russia to interfere in the 2016 election for the benefit of Donald Trump,” Schiff declared. “It establishes that the Trump campaign welcomed the Russian interference because it expected to benefit electorally from the information stolen and released through the Russian effort.”
“Nevertheless and contrary to the president’s often-repeated mantra and many misrepresentations of the attorney general, the special counsel reached no conclusion as to whether the Trump campaign’s many Russian contacts constituted collusion since that term is not defined in criminal law,” he added.
GOP Rep. Devin Nunes fired-back at Schiff moments later, saying “After years of false accusations and McCarthyite smears, the collusion hoax now defines the Democratic Party.”
“The hoax is what they have in place of a governing philosophy or a constructive vision for our country,” he added.
Schiff doubled-down on his delusional attacks against the White House earlier this week; breathlessly calling the Attorney General of the United States the “second most dangerous man in the country.”

“We find ourselves, I think, for the first time with an attorney general who really is the president’s defense lawyer and spokesperson who’s quite good at it and has the veneer of respectability to camouflage what he’s doing,” Schiff said, referring to Barr.
“He is not the sophist that Giuliani is, he’s much more dangerous, and I think he’s the second-most-dangerous man in the country,” he added.
