Adam Schiff announces sweeping investigation into Trump's finances and Russia





(CNN)House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff announced Wednesday a broad investigation his committee would undertake "beyond Russia" into whether President Donald Trump's financial interests are driving his actions.

Schiff said the investigation would "allow us to investigate any credible allegation that financial interests or other interests are driving decision-making of the President or anyone in the administration."

"That pertains to any credible allegations of leverage by the Russians or the Saudis or anyone else," Schiff told reporters after the House Intelligence Committee's first meeting in the new Congress.

In a statement, Schiff said the investigation would include a continued probe into Russia's actions during the 2016 election and contacts between the Russia and Trump's team, as well as an examination of "whether any foreign actor has sought to compromise or holds leverage, financial or otherwise, over Donald Trump, his family, his business, or his associates."

Schiff said the investigation, which could involve additional congressional committees, would also look at whether Trump or his associates have "sought to influence US government policy in service of foreign interests" and any potential obstruction into the various investigations.

Schiff's announcement is the most detailed look yet into how congressional Democrats will investigate Trump's finances and possible ties to foreign entities, and how Democrats are sure to continue probing Trump and his team well after special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation had concluded.
Trump reacted Wednesday to Schiff's announcement by slamming the California Democrat and saying Schiff has "no basis to do that."

"He's just a political hack trying to build a name for himself," Trump said in the Roosevelt Room Wednesday after announcing his new nominee to be World Bank president. "It's called presidential harassment and it is unfortunate."

Trump's comments followed his State of the Union speech Tuesday in which he warned Democrats against undertaking "ridiculous partisan investigations."

Schiff responded to Trump's attack on Twitter, saying: "We're going to do our job and won't be distracted or intimidated by threats or attacks.

You really think that makes a significant distinction?
As I explained to you before, counterintelligence investigations don’t involve the same safeguards and restrictions involved in criminal investigations. Using the former to bypass the restrictions in the latter is my issue. That issue isn’t present in the Starr investigation.

Well, now you are on record as saying that you have been consistent. That ancillary crimes or other naughty matters that come to light during the course of an investigation not related to the stated task should be ignored.

Right?

Irrelevant is the word you're looking for (or should be). That letter has nothing to do with what I'm talking about (i.e. what should be, not what is).

It seems well established that you're content to defer to the letter as if the way things are being done is necessarily the way things ought to be done.

In the ways that I described, yes.

But you agreed with Clinton's impeachment over perjury. Perjury which had nothing to do with shady real estate deals (Starr's primary task)?

That wasn't a counterintelligence investigation was it?

No, but it was an investigation by a special prosecutor. Why do you think that matters?

Why are you fine with one ignoring other matters/crimes, and not the other?
