Schiff: Congress Would Take a Look at Mueller's Evidence 'if Necessary'

In a Wednesday appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) said that if FBI special counsel Robert Mueller finds no collusion involving President Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election that Congress would subpoena his evidence and look at it. “We’re certainly considering whatever is necessary to make sure that this is not buried, that the public gets to see this report,” Schiff outlined. “And more than that, that we have access in Congress to the underlying evidence. So, yes we will subpoena it if necessary. I will certainly recommend that we bring Bob Mueller in to testify, that we take it to court if necessary. And I do want to make one further point, and that is this: I fully concur with what the speaker said regarding impeachment. That, however, does not let the Justice Department off the hook.” He continued, “If the Justice Department takes the position that you can’t indict a sitting president but we’re not going to share the evidence with Congress that it would need to determine whether impeachment is warranted, that amounts to immunity for the president. And when the speaker says the evidence is going to have to be clear and compelling, that doesn’t obviate
