In defense of committe Democrats, Adam Schiff, a former prosecutor, is clearly astute and obviously trying to work with special counsel in a way that does not impede the investigation. Beyond that, note what he told NPR in November:
“There is evidence that we gathered that we would like to share with the special counsel. There is also testimony of witnesses before our committee in which we have profound concerns over whether they committed perjury…”
“There certainly have been issued raised within the last couple weeks pertaining to Roger Stone with the release of email, which if authentic would that some of his answers before our committee are highly suspect. And I think it’s something Bob Mueller should have the benefit of.”
What just happened last Friday?
They are just getting started, and I think it’s important to note that Schiff plans to share more information with the special counsel’s office. Stay tuned.
