Trump has been fighting with Congressman Adam Schiff for days. Schiff, the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, has outsmarted Trump at every turn over this ridiculous Nunes memo. Trump is desperately trying to block Schiff from releasing the only factual document, so Schiff is putting Trump on blast for the crimes he’s seen evidence of.
Typically, during an ongoing investigation you don’t discuss the details about it, but Schiff is a former prosecutor and he knows what he can say without harming the case Mueller is building.
Schiff told reporters “There is certainly an abundance of non-public information that we’ve gathered in the investigation. And I think some of that non-public evidence is evidence on the issue of collusion and some on the issue of obstruction.”
Trump continues to scream that there has been no collusion and no obstruction involving him and/or his team during the 2016 presidential election or since he took the White House.
Schiff went on to add on Wednesday of this week that the intelligence committee had also seen evidence that points toward money laundering involving Trump’s circle of associates, but has been blocked by partisan efforts to property investigate the findings.
Schiff said: “It is a tried and true maxim. As a former prosecutor, you follow the money. We have not been able to adequately follow the money. And I think the allegations on money laundering are credible enough that we ought to, in the exercise of due diligence, see if this was one of the other vectors of the Russian active measures campaign.”
Referring to the possible existence of a compromising video of Trump in Moscow, Schiff said: “We know that in other places they use money laundering as a way of entangling people, as a way of compromising people. To me that is far more potentially compromising than any salacious video would be.”
While that doesn’t completely spell out the specifics, it confirms that the evidence the public has seen is nothing compared to what investigators are finding behind the scenes.
