SHADY SCHIFF: Mueller Making a ‘Mistake’ by Not Having President Trump Testify Under Oath (VIDEO)
House Intel Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) appeared on NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday to discuss the ongoing Russia witch hunt.
Schiff told NBC host Chuck Todd that Mueller is making a mistake by not having President Trump testify under oath.
In November, the President provided written answers to the special counsel about so-called ‘Russian collusion’ during the 2016 presidential campaign.
Mueller wants to question the President about obstruction of justice for his firing of James Comey, but Trump’s legal team is pushing back and refusing to fall into Mueller’s perjury trap.
“It looks like Robert Mueller is going to finish his investigation without subpoenaing the president before the grand jury or coming up with a way to have him interviewed by the grand jury,” Chuck Todd said on Sunday. “If indeed Mr. Mueller decides not to issue that subpoena or figure out how to get the president in front of that grand jury, is that gonna have been a mistake considering we have so many questions…”
Schiff responded, “Yes, I think it is a mistake, and I’ve said it all along that I don’t think Bob Mueller should rely on written answers,” Schiff said. “When you get written answers from a witness it’s really the lawyer’s answers as much as the client’s answer.”
Schiff also claimed that Mueller is under “time pressure” to conclude his work and that President Trump has made over 100 false statements to the public already.
Despite Robert Mueller and the Senate Intel Panel finding zero evidence that Trump conspired with Russia during the 2016 election, Schiff’s House Intel Committee and the House Judiciary Committee have both launched massive investigations into Trump’s personal life, finances and Russia.
House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler even admitted to CNN recently that there is zero evidence Trump obstructed justice, but he launched an investigation because it’s his ‘personal opinion’ that Trump violated the Constitution.
