House Intelligence Chair Schiff at Christian Science Monitor : CSPAN : March 12, 2019 3:39pm-4:45pm EDT
committee from devin nunes. mr. schiff: i view, frankly, the collusion issue as a category of the issue of compromise. the interest of our committee and indeed the origin of the justice department investigation had to do with counterintelligence, had to do with compromise. if the trump campaign played any role with the russians in their interference in our election, that not only would be a crime, but it would also be deeply compromising of this president, because the russians, being the other party to the transaction, or to the conspiracy, could expose it at their time and place. so these are not disconnected. if the trump campaign was working in coordination with the russians, if the trump organization was doing business with the russians and had an economic interest, if anyone within the administration was deriving foreign funding for the inauguration or any other of its efforts improperly or illegally, all of this is within the category of compromise. on the issue of collusion, the reality is that there is ample evidence of collusion in plain sight and it has been for a very long time.
