Schiff: US better off if Trump 'were watching cartoons in the morning'

Schiff: US better off if Trump 'were watching cartoons in the morning'

After Trump's tweets, Senate Judiciary Committee chair Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, said he would not be having a discussion with the president about taking control of the investigation.

"The single greatest Witch Hunt in American history continues".

Trump's suggestion in his tweet on Wednesday that "Republicans should finally take control" strongly indicated that he wants the party to do anything and everything it can to prevent the investigation from coming to an embarrassing - and potentially incriminating - conclusion for himself, or those he's close to.

Republicans, who control both the House and Senate, are leading three separate congressional investigations into Russia's interference in the presidential election and possible collusion with Trump associates. Dianne Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, for releasing the testimony from the head of a political research firm that compiled a now-infamous dossier alleging ties between then-candidate Donald Trump and the Kremlin.

Moreover, Schiff said the GOP has blocked Democrats' demands to request documents and hold witness interviews about the misleading responses to the news media after the Trump Tower meeting was revealed last summer.

Bannon's appearance comes as many Democrats worry that Trump's fellow Republicans are seeking to stall or shut down congressional probes of Russian Federation and the 2016 election.

Republicans say there hasn't been proof yet on collusion, and they blame Democrats for trying to drag out the investigations and chase what they say are false leads. "Must have tough Primary!" In the transcript, Glenn Simpson testifies that Steele stumbled on evidence of collusion and called the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and he vouches for Steele as a "Boy Scout". At the time, the dossier was being funded by a lawyer for Hillary Clinton's campaign, after initial work on the project funded by a Republican donor stopped. There, he learned that the FBI had already opened an investigation of possible coordination based on other intelligence from a separate source.

Increasingly, Democrats see Republicans as dedicating more energy to attacking federal law enforcement than seriously investigating the allegations that have been unearthed.

Moscow denies trying to meddle, and Trump dismisses talk of collusion.

"The innuendo and misinformation circulating about the transcript are part of a deeply troubling effort to undermine the investigation into potential collusion and obstruction of justice", Feinstein said.

It is unclear whether the report, which relies on public information, will have much impact beyond buttressing the historical record of Russian aggression against the West. Committee aides stressed that it is the first government report to comprehensively lay out the size and scope of the threat. But Burr has indicated the panel is considering punting until later this year on the question of whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russian Federation, issuing instead a bipartisan report focused on election security as the 2018 midterms get underway. With Trump's encouragement as he nears a year in office, multiple GOP-led congressional committees are now investigating the FBI and whether the bureau conspired against the president during the campaign.
