Rep. Adam Schiff (MSNBC)

Rep. Adam Schiff was asked to respond to an explosive Rolling Stone report about Republican members of Congress and their alleged efforts to plan the January 6th demonstrations during an appearance on Stephen Colbert's show.

When asked whether he and the January 6th committee were aware of the report, Schiff said that they were but would not comment on specifics.

"A core part of our investigation is to find out what role anyone played in the planning or conduct of that attack on January 6th, and that includes members of Congress," he said.

Schiff said later in the interview that there would be consequences for any members who took part in the planning of the Capitol riots, including potential censure or expulsion. He said it would be up to the United States Department of Justice, however, to determine if any criminal charges were filed.
