Top Intel Dem concludes there’s ‘abundant’ evidence of collusion and obstruction of justice in Trump-Russia probe
The top Democrat on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence revealed to Capitol Hill reporters on Wednesday that there is more evidence against President Donald Trump than has been revealed publicly.
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) said the evidence is involves the crimes of collusion, obstruction of justice, and money laundering, The Guardian reported.
“There is certainly an abundance of non-public information that we’ve gathered in the investigation,” Rep. Schiff continued. “And I think some of that non-public evidence is evidence on the issue of collusion and some … on the issue of obstruction.”
“It is a tried and true maxim. As a former prosecutor, you follow the money,” the former assistant U.S. Attorney.
“We have not been able to adequately follow the money. And I think the allegations on money laundering are credible enough that we ought to, in the exercise of due diligence, see if this was one of the other vectors of the Russian active measures campaign,” Schiff explained.
Schiff also referenced the rumored Trump sex tape.
“We know that in other places they use money laundering as a way of entangling people, as a way of compromising people,” he added. “To me that is far more potentially compromising than any salacious video would be.”
