Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) appears to be using his status as the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee as a way to make the FBI his own personal enforcement unit.
During a recent interview, Schiff flatly admitted he wants to work with Robert Mueller to see if Donald Trump, Jr., among others, should be indicted for lying.

“I’d like the special counsel to have access to Don Jr’s testimony to determine if it is evidence of false statements,” he said on ABC’s “This Week.”
“One of the first acts, if not the first act, of our committee, will be to send all of these transcripts of all the witnesses to Bob Mueller so that he can consider whether additional perjury charges are warranted,” Schiff said.
“… we want to make sure that the special counsel has access to these transcripts and can use them for whatever purpose, including perjury prosecution or witness intimidation or obstruction of justice,” he clarified.
Change of Heart
All of a sudden, members of Congress are very concerned about the truth.
One cannot help but look back to the testimony of Hillary Clinton and ask: Where was the concern then?
Now, as special counsel Robert Mueller shows a penchant for indicting individuals on false statements charges, Schiff wants to send him stacks of testimony to search in an effort to get Donald Trump, Jr. on some potential misstatement.
Nothing New for Schiff
Schiff is typical of the Trump-hating Democrats in D.C. these days.
The Democrats had no sooner taken the House when Schiff started to make the talk show rounds, discussing how he was going to take down the Trump family.
Back in December, Schiff said, “He [Donald Trump] may be the first president in quite some time to face jail time.”
He was not above spreading false rumors that President Donald Trump was possibly buying testimony from witnesses by dangling pardons in front of them.
By the way, this is something both the president and those “parties” have all denied.
Schiff has also accused the president of illegal campaign activities.
Now, he is going after the president’s son in an effort to restore power to the Democrats.
He is a political partisan gone mad … and yet he is the man who presides over one of the most powerful oversight committees in the government.
