House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff on Sunday said he doesn’t think his decision to restart and expand the Russian-meddling investigation conflicts with special counsel Robert Mueller’s ongoing probe.
“We have a separate and an independent and important responsibility and that is to tell the country what happened. Mueller, ultimately, his job is to determine who broke the law, and who should go to jail,” Mr. Schiff told NBC’s Meet the Press.
The California Democrat also said Mr. Trump’s pick for attorney general, William Barr, hasn’t given enough assurance that Mr. Mueller’s evidence of potential wrongdoing will be disclosed to the public.
Mr. Schiff says Republicans who controlled the last Congress led a toothless investigation into the 2016 race and what role, if any, the Trump campaign played in Russian involvement.
He announced a new investigation last week that will relaunch the probe, yet also look into whether or not the president, his children, or any of his businesses were compromised by foreign agents.
