Adam Schiff admits that democrats will probe Trump businesses with Mueller


by Andrew West, Freedom OutPost:

The public perception around the democrats’ incessant push to continue the “Russiagate” probe is a troubled one.

For many, the nonstop narrative regarding Robert Mueller’s coming testimony on the case just adds fuel to the fire.  They see the far-left as a “resistant”, rogue faction within American politics, who are abstaining from their regularly scheduled public service to re-examine an already exhausted investigation.

Prominent democratic stalwart Adam Schiff has again exaggerated the doubt in the democrats’ true motives with his latest admission; that he and his colleagues will push to glean information from Robert Mueller regarding President Trump’s businesses.

Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) confirmed that his committee would be questioning former Department of Justice special counsel Robert Mueller about subjects beyond his report.

Mitchell asked, “Congressman, is he is going to go beyond four corners of his report?”

Schiff said, “Well, that is certainly what we are going to ask of him. We will be asking him, yes, questions that go into the report, but asking questions outside of the report. The attorney general has made it clear that he feels completely free to discuss matters not in the report, and the attorney general mischaracterized the report. And so there is no law or prescription against Bob Mueller talking about other avenues of the investigation they pursued or didn’t pursue and so we will have a lot of questions to have him to answer, and we expect to get answers.”

Schiff went on to proclaim that one avenue of interest would be President Trump’s business interests in Russia – a piece of the Mueller report that has already been examined over the course of 22 months.

The democrats are certainly expecting the Mueller testimony to be explosive, but they may not be prepared for the spectacle that will befall them.

Mueller has been publicly terse in his reluctance to testify publicly, making sure to not that his answers would likely come verbatim from his lengthy written report.  If his testimony turns circus-like, the democrats could be facing an impatient and ornery constituency come 2020.
