“Barring some emergency, coming more from Bob Mueller than the Congress, I see no reason not to expect an appearance” from Mueller, @RepAdamSchiff says. But Barr doesn’t want Mueller to testify, Schiff adds, and committees are still having daily fights with DOJ. #AspenSecurity
Schiff: I want to make it clear that the choice not to go beyond the report during testimony is a choice Bob Mueller is making, that is not required by law or regulation—it is a choice.
Schiff confirms that HPSCI has heard about 5 hours of testimony on counterintelligence subjects, behind closed doors.
Schiff says he wants to know from Mueller whether Trump should be indicted once he leaves office. But he also knows Mueller won’t answer that question. “Nonetheless there are other ways of asking that question,” he adds. #AspenSecurity
Schiff also wants to know whether there was any pressure put on Mueller not to subpoena Trump, and whether any limits were placed on the scope of the probe.
Schiff says he does think there’s value in having Mueller speak the report in his own words. But says “what is most powerful” is how the facts look together—not in isolation. “You look at the pattern, and the pattern in volume 1 and volume 2 is devastating.” #AspenSecurity
Have you been able to connect the dots where Mueller couldn’t re: conspiracy w/Russia?
Schiff: There’s little to be gained in trying to dispute prosecutorial judgment that he made. Case could be made that all of the elements of conspiracy were there in the Trump Tower meeting.
Schiff: “I’m not particularly confident” that we can stop another foreign interference campaign in 2020. #AspenSecurity
