House Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff (D-CA) rejected preliminary reporting after Special Counsel Robert Mueller submitted his findings indicating that no more indictments are coming in the Russia probe.
“If necessary, we will call Bob Mueller or others before our committee, I would imagine the judiciary committee may call the attorney general if necessary,” the California congressman said on CNN. (Fox News)
“At the end of the day, the department is under a statutory obligation to provide our committee with any information regarding significant intelligence activities, including counterintelligence. And it’s hard to imagine anything more significant than what Bob Mueller has been investigating.
“We have a right to be informed, and we will demand to be informed about it.”
Schiff was then asked if he would be satisfied if “the most sensitive information” obtained by Mueller was only shared with the so-called “gang of eight.”
“No, it would not suffice. Now, there may be a select sub-section of information they feel they can only share because of the very sensitive sources which derived the information, but he volumes of information that has been found needs to be shared with the whole committee so we can evaluate what steps have to be taken to protect the country.”
