In an interview with “Face the Nation,” Rep. Adam Schiff who chairs the House Intelligence Committee, made clear what the committee is investigating.
“The Moscow Trump Tower deal, for example, is among the most disturbing, because that’s something the president was pursuing throughout the midst of the presidential campaign,” Schiff, the committee’s chairman, said on “Face the Nation” Sunday.
“We are certainly looking deep into this set of issues around Moscow at Trump Tower. We’re also looking at persistent allegations that the Russians have been laundering money through the Trump Organization. I don’t know that that’s true. But if it is, again, it’s a profound compromise of this president.”
“While saying he was having no business dealings with the Russians, that was a deal that stood to make him more money than any other deal in his life,” Schiff said.
“And it was a deal where he was pursuing help from the Kremlin from Putin himself at a time when Putin was seeking relief from sanctions and that is the most compromising circumstance so that I can imagine.”
This comes after Michael Cohen’s explosive testimony before the House Oversight Committee. In addition, Cohen has testified in multiple closed-door sessions where House Democrats have already hinted at learning more about possible crimes involving President Trump.
Schiff has also had his eyes for a while on Deutsche Bank who as Schiff said, has a “history of laundering Russian money.”
