Adam Schiff: Democrats Will 'Expose What Trump Did' - 'After He's Gone'
House Intelligence Committee chairman warns investigations will continue
Democratic House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) has warned that his investigations into President Donald Trump will continue even after he leaves office.
Rep. Schiff said during a new interview that Democrats will "expose" President Trump's "wrongdoing" when his presidency ends.
Speaking Saturday, during an interview with Jon Lovett on “Crooked Media,” Schiff said he will reveal his evidence against Trump "after the election, after he’s gone."
"After the election, after he’s gone, then I think we have to continue to expose what he did in office because, of course, the administration has stonewalled us in every way it can," Schiff told host Lovett.

"They have stonewalled every subpoena, every request for information," the California Democrat claimed.
"There is a lot more evidence of the president’s wrongdoing that is being withheld and will be withheld as long as he is in office," Schiff continues.
On the court battles over his committee's subpoenas of Trump’s financial records, Schiff said, "We are going to pursue them now.
"They may well be able to stonewall them up and through the fall.
"Frankly, for me, the issue is less about getting the records before November, it’s about getting them while the country is at risk."
Completely unchallenged by anti-Trump host Lovett, the congressman then pushed debunked conspiracy theories about the presdient colluding with Russia.
"We don’t know why this president is so beholden to Vladimir Putin," Schiff bemoans.
"Is it just his affinity for dictators?
"Is it just his administration for Putin? Is it his insecurity?
"Or is it his financial interests in Russia or with Russian oligarchs?
"This is why the withholding of these financial records id dangerous because we don’t know if this president is compromised.”
"So we are going to persist with that litigation," Schiff concludes.
"We hope that we get it this year.
"If we don’t, we will continue until we do.”
