Rep. Adam Schiff warns Republicans are gearing up to shut down Mueller’s investigation

Will Mueller’s investigation all be for naught?

In a Twitter thread from this Friday, House Intelligence Committee ranking Democrat Adam Schiff warned that Republicans may be gearing up to shut down the committee’s Trump-Russia investigation, saying that the move could come as early as the “end of this month” and that special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation could be next.

Schiff tweeted that the investigation is making “important progress” in its effort to “expose Russia’s meddling and protect our democracy.”

“Yet, Republicans have scheduled no witnesses after next Friday and none in 2017,” he tweeted. “We have dozens of outstanding witnesses on key aspects of our investigation that they refuse to contact and many document requests they continue to sit on.”

According to Schiff, Republicans “want to conduct just enough interviews to give the impression of a serious investigation.”

Schiff says that if the House Intellience Committee’s investigation is shut down, Mueller’s could be next.

“By shutting down the congressional investigations when they continue to discover new and important evidence, the White House can exert tremendous pressure to end or curtail Mueller’s investigation or cast doubt on it. We cannot let that happen.”
