Earlier in the week, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) told Yahoo News’ “Skullduggery” podcast that he “vehemently” disagreed with Attorney General Merrick Garland’s hesitation to investigate 45th President Donald Trump.

“I think there’s a real desire on the part of the attorney general, for the most part, not to look backward. Do I disagree with that? I do disagree with that, and I disagree with it most vehemently when it comes to what I consider even more serious offenses,” Schiff said, appearing to vent his irritation over the matter, on the podcast.

Asked about Attorney General Merrick Garland’s reluctance to revive old investigations or pursue new ones that focused on 45th President Donald Trump, including the 2018 report by former special counsel Robert Mueller, Schiff said, “In my view, you don’t ignore the crimes that have been committed by a president of the United States. They need to be investigated.”

“You may reach the judgment once you’ve investigated something that the public interest in not prosecuting a former president outweighs the interests of justice. But I don’t think you could ignore the crimes,” Schiff said. He called the 2018 report “a factual basis to charge the president with multiple crimes of obstruction.”‘

In 2018, Mueller’s team did not charge President Donald Trump or anyone on his campaign with coordinating with the Russian government.

Schiff also remarked over the January 6 congressional committee, claiming, “For example, a taped conversation of Donald J. Trump on the phone with Brad Raffensperger, the secretary of state from Georgia, trying to coerce him into fraudulently finding 11,780 votes. Because I think if you or I did that, we’d be under indictment by now”. Continued Below

In an email statement on Saturday, 45th President Donald Trump slammed Rep. Schiff, calling him a “sleezeball that has no credibility”.

“Do you believe that Shifty Adam Schiff is on the Committee concerning the 2020 protest when he was the one that scammed America and the World on the Russia, Russia, Russia Hoax?” the former president asked.

“He’s a sleezeball that has no credibility and is so bad for our Nation!” Trump expressed. Continued Below

On Sunday, Rep. Schiff claimed, “Trump issued a statement attacking me. Out of the blue”.

The Democrat congressman proceeded to promote his book in the Twitter post: Midnight in Washington.

Schiff previously appeared to vent his frustration last month over the attorney general not investigating a phone call between Trump and Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger during an interview on CNN.

Meanwhile, the 45th President had issued a statement in March, demanding a “strong investigation” following a retraction from far-left Washington Post, who falsely claimed that Trump, in a phone call with Frances Watson, chief investigator with the Georgia Secretary of State’s office, had asked to “find the votes”, as previously reported by The Freedom Times.

On January 9, the Post reported that Trump told Watson to “find the fraud” he claims happened during the 2020 US election, and that if she did, she’d be a “national hero.” An actual recording of the call reveals Trump said no such thing, Zero Hedge reported.
