Adam Schiff Is Prepping An Investigation Of Trump That’ll Make Mueller’s Look Like Child’s Play

Mod: It could be that in a few months Donald will be thinking of the Mueller investigation as "the good old days."

Adam Schiff Is Prepping An Investigation Of Trump That’ll Make Mueller’s Look Like Child’s Play (PoliticusUSA link): While Robert Mueller’s investigation has so far been thorough and far-reaching, Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff – the soon-to-be chairman of the House Intelligence Committee – is preparing to dig into the president’s criminal activity in a way that could make the current special counsel probe look like child’s play.

During an interview with The New Yorker, “Schiff talked about his plans for conducting an investigation that will be parallel to Mueller’s, probing Trump’s connections to Russia, Saudi Arabia, and other places around the world.”

The New Yorker added: “As Schiff described his approach, it became clear that he wasn’t just planning to cross Trump’s red line—he intended to obliterate it.” Schiff said that the role of the committee he will soon lead “is not the same as Bob Mueller’s.” Instead, he believes that in addition to finding criminal activity, Congress has an added responsibility to make the public aware of any corruption or wrongdoing.

“The American people have a right to know that their President is working on their behalf, not his family’s financial interests,” the powerful Democratic congressman told The New Yorker. “Right now, I don’t think any of us can have the confidence that that’s the case.”

More from The New Yorker:

Congressional committees, like the one Schiff will soon lead, are supposed to monitor the executive branch and expose wrongdoing. Mueller is supposed to file a report on his findings, but, in keeping with the regulations for the office of the special counsel, it will be up to his supervisor in the Justice Department, who is now Matthew Whitaker, the acting Attorney General, to determine whether Mueller’s report is made public. Schiff has his own agenda for areas to investigate. “The one that has always concerned me is the financial issues, which obviously have come much to the fore this week,” he said. Shortly before Schiff and I spoke, Michael Cohen, Trump’s former personal attorney, had pleaded guilty to lying to Congress about his role in the negotiations for building a Trump tower in Moscow. Cohen had said earlier that these discussions ended in January, 2016, but he admitted in court that he had been negotiating with Russian officials, and keeping Trump apprised, through the first half of 2016, during the Republican Presidential primaries. Trump has denied that he was doing business with the Russians during this period.

Schiff went on, “At the end of the day, what should concern us most is anything that can have a continuing impact on the foreign policy and national-security policy of the United States, and, if the Russians were laundering money for the Trump Organization, that would be totally compromising.” Schiff hypothesizes that Trump went beyond using his campaign and the Presidency as a vehicle for advancing his business interests, speculating that he may have shaped policy with an eye to expanding his fortune. “There’s a whole constellation of issues where that is essentially the center of gravity,” Schiff said. “Obviously, that issue is implicated in efforts to build Trump Tower in Moscow. It’s implicated in the money that Trump is bragging he was getting from the Saudis. And why shouldn’t he love the Saudis? He said he was making so much money from them.”

  1. Russian sexual Kompromat - I think that the "pee tape" isn't what Trump is worried about.

    Fact: Trump is part of the Jeff Epstein “passengers on private flights” circle, along with his unofficial media asshole defense attorney Alan Dershowitz.

    Fact: Multiple women accused Trump of sexual harassment and assault during the 2016 campaign (along with the Access Hollywood tape on which Trump boasted of getting away with sexually assaulting women.).

    Fact: Trump’s first wife (Ivana) alleged that he raped her when they were married.

    Fact: Trump has always been creepy about his daughter Ivanka (his own daughter!), even when she was very young.

    Fact: Trump "checked out" Miss Teen USA contestants when they were in their locker rooms.

    The Pee Tape may very well be real, but I suspect that it may also be a red herring compared to something genuinely sinister regarding Trump's sexual depravity of which the Russians also have video and audio.

  8. Trump push to deport Vietnam War refugees scalds California GOP

    Anti-Trump sentiment helped Democrats topple every Republican House member in Orange County last month in the storied California conservative stronghold.

    Now, a Trump administration push to deport Vietnamese nationals is compounding the party’s problems, possibly cementing the loss of a coastal county that had long been the epicenter of Republican power in California.

    As state Republicans try to chart a path out of electoral oblivion, several of them expressed incredulity that Donald Trump would follow the election thrashing by antagonizing one of the few minority groups that has consistently voted for GOP candidates.

    “Trump shovels more dirt on California Republicans’ grave...” Republican Assemblyman and former leader Chad Mayes tweeted in response to reports that the administration would revive its efforts to deport Vietnamese people who arrived in America before 1995.

    A substantial number of those Vietnamese people, many of them war refugees, settled in Orange County, and a shared aversion to communism forged an enduring bond with the Republican Party — much as it did with Cuban refugees from the Castro regime.

    While there are signs that younger Vietnamese-Americans have veered sharply to the left of their elders, there are still more registered Republicans than Democrats among Orange County’s roughly 100,000 voters of Vietnamese descent, according to Political Data Inc., a voter data firm used by both Republicans and Democrats in California.

  10. Hair Furor Rages Against SNL After Being Mocked

    President Trump early Sunday ripped “one sided” and “unfair” coverage, saying it should be tested in courts.

    “A REAL scandal is the one sided coverage, hour by hour, of networks like NBC & Democrat spin machines like Saturday Night Live,” he tweeted.

    Trump posted the tweet after NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” pondered a world in which the president was not elected in its latest cold open.

  12. More politico fake news, every Vietnamese citizen knows they are protected from deportation back to their country of origin. You can even committ a felony and you cannot be deported back after your sentence has been completed. It is a well know secret in the community, something about a treaty with the US after a little thing called the Viet Nam War and the Camanrouge not being a great welcome home committee.
    Just thought you may want to recheck your source and not spread propaganda like the Communist party does, thanks.

  16. Melania Trump Fears For Donald's Health -- He's Under 'Immense Stress' From Investigations

    Save the man you love, Mel. Get him to resign.

    Melania Trump is worrying about the stress Donald Trump is ‘under’ from the ongoing Mueller investigation! A source close to Melania told HL EXCLUSIVELY that she still ‘believes’ him.

    Following Michael Cohen‘s three-year sentencing, Melania Trump has become “concerned” about how her husband Donald Trump is dealing with the continuing Russian investigation. A source close to the first lady told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY how the ongoing Mueller investigation has affected Donald’s health. “Melania is concerned about the effect all these investigations are having on Donald’s health, but she isn’t concerned about the outcome of any investigations,” our source told us. “Melania believes her husband’s claim that he’s being subjected to a ‘witch hunt’ and that there’s no truth to the allegations against him.”

    Meanwhile, Melania has noticed Donald is more stressed than usual. “Donald is still under immense stress right now though,” our source added. “He feels like he’s being attacked from all sides and that his enemies will stop at nothing to bring him down, and Melania can’t help worrying about how his body is dealing with all that stress, which keeps growing by the day.”

    Melania, who recently insisted that she and the president have great “chemistry,” is trying to support Donald amid the growing pressures of the investigation. “Melania is doing what she does best in these kind of situations,” our source went on to say. “She’s being Donald’s rock, and a soothing voice of calm and reason. She’s there for him 100 percent.” We’ll keep you posted with all of the latest news about Melania and Donald.
