House Intelligence Committee Votes to Send Key Interview Transcripts to Robert Mueller’s Office

The House Intelligence Committee voted on Wednesday to send witness transcripts to Robert Mueller’s office; the move was the first in what could be a bruising next stretch of the Russia investigation.

With Democrats now in control of the House, the Intel Committee is under the hand of Rep. Adam Schiff of California. On Wednesday, immediately after the vote, Schiff told reporters “the special counsel’s office, the Justice Department and its elements will now have access to those transcripts for any purpose which will facilitate justice,” according to Politico.

The House Intel Committee has interviewed a number of top names from inside the Trump orbit, including Donald Trump Jr. and Jared Kushner.

We do know that the special counsel may prosecute Trump-associated figures if he believes that they lied to the House Intel Committee. In January, Mueller’s team charged former Trump aide Roger Stone with lying to the House Intel Committee about his interactions with Wikileaks.

The Intel Committee is gaining steam under Schiff’s leadership at fleshing out the players in the Trump drama. On Wednesday — the same day that the committee voted to send the transcripts to Robert Mueller — Schiff announced that Michael Cohen would be appearing before the committee on February 28. Cohen had previously said that he was fearful for his family and postponed his testimony.

And Schiff has gotten under the president’s skin too. On Twitter, Trump has raged at the chairman, branding him as “Liddle’ Adam Schiff, the leakin’ monster of no control,” and writing he “is desperate to run for higher office, is one of the biggest liars and leakers in Washington.” In one tweet, Trump even called Schiff, “Adam Schitt.”

Nonetheless, Schiff has trudged onward, aiming his committee at peeling back the layers behind the Trump orbit and peering into possible collusion with Russia.

“The Intel Committee is gaining steam under Schiff’s leadership at fleshing out the players in the Trump drama.” You, alex, are the epitome of the term “partisan hack”. I’m sure that “steam” is just gonna lead to a “steaming pile of schitt”.

And the witch hunt continues by the Dem/Socialists because they don’t have a clue or a plan on how to fix anything which Trump hasn’t already fixed.
