House Intel Committee Democrat: More Evidence of Trump-Russia Ties

HeadlineMar 24, 2017

House Democrats pushed Thursday for an independent probe into alleged ties between top Trump officials and Russia’s government, saying House Intelligence Committee chair and former Trump transition team member Devin Nunes can’t be trusted to lead an investigation. California Rep. Adam Schiff, the ranking Democrat on the Intelligence Committee, told CNN Thursday he’s uncovered further evidence that Trump officials may have actively colluded with Russian officials.

Rep. Adam Schiff: “The kind of evidence that you would submit to a grand jury at the beginning of an investigation. It’s not the kind of evidence you take to a trial jury when you’re trying to prove something beyond a reasonable doubt. But we’re at the beginning of an investigation. And given the gravity of the subject matter, I think that the evidence certainly warrants us doing a thorough investigation.”
