When MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell asked if any of the nearly 150 interviews conducted by the 1/6 Committee included Trump officials, Rep. Schiff replied:
They include people from the former administration. They include people in the private sector. This includes people who are experts in some – for example the social media problems that we are investigating. So you go through the scale.
But I think what was encouraging to us is because we had the cooperation of People in the public and private sectors In the industry, we know what to ask for. And we know when to ask for it Creation of documents and we don’t get the full truth that we can hold these parties responsible.
Rep. Schiff confirms that former officials in his administration are attacking the former president without Trump in the White House threatening to cooperate with them and obstructing them if they do not cooperate.
The former officials don’t all have money like Trump and Steve Bannon, so come forward and don’t wait for a subpoena.
The chairman of the Ship Intelligence Committee was right. The 1/6 committee has teeth and people are scared of them. The fact that Trump administration officials are cracking down on Trump is a signal that the rule of law is returning.
