California Rep. Adam Schiff revealed that he would not stop investigating President Donald Trump even after his committee’s impeachment report is filed.
The House Intelligence Committee, which Adam Schiff chairs, has started working on its impeachment report following testimonies from several witnesses.
The report is supposed to include the findings of the House Intelligence Committee to be presented to the House Judiciary Committee and move the impeachment process forward.
However, Rep. Adam Schiff explained that he would continue to use the committee to investigate the President on issues related to impeachment even after he hands off the Intelligence Committee report to Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler.
On Sunday, Schiff appeared in an interview on “State of the Union”, and said that he would not wait to get a court ruling demanding testimony from several firsthand witnesses, including the depositions of Mike Pence, Mike Pompeo and Rudy Giuliani.
“Yes, we would love to have the witnesses to come in, but we’re not willing to simply allow them to wait us out, to stall this proceeding when the facts are already overwhelming,” said Rep. Adam Schiff.
“We’re going to continue our investigation. We’re going to continue to pursue the documents,” he added.
As the Washington Examiner reported, host Jake Tapper questioned Schiff’s statement, asking, “Even after you’ve handed in the report, you’re going to continue?”
“Yes. Oh, yes,” Rep. Adam Schiff said. “The investigation isn’t going to end.”
