Schiff says he's 'absolutely' prepared to sue Trump administration to 'get to the bottom of this'

2 min read

House Intelligence Chair Adam Schiff appeared on ABC’s This Week this morning and assured us he is ready to subpoena Robert Mueller’s report, call Mueller to testify, or even sue the administration in order to get to the bottom of the Trump-Russia affair.

In other words, there’s a new sheriff in town, and his name isn’t Devin “Nothing to See Here” Nunes.

ABC News:

“In the end I think the [Justice] Department understands they're going to have to make this public. I think [Attorney General William] Barr will ultimately understand that as well.”

ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos asked, “Are you prepared to take the administration to court?”

“Absolutely. We are going to get to the bottom of this. We are going to share this information with the public,” Schiff said. “And if the president is serious about all his claims of exoneration, then he should welcome the publication of this report.”

Amid speculation that Mueller would be delivering his report to Barr as early as this week, a Justice Department official with knowledge of the matter told ABC News Friday that the report is not imminent.

So this is what happens when the House Intelligence Committee isn’t looking for collusion at the bottom of a Froot Loops box. They might actually find it.
