Schiff, the House Intelligence Committee chairman and a January 6 committee member did not rule out criminal referrals for his Congressional colleagues who were accused of helping Trump with his plan.
‘I think that the evidence is there that Donald Trump committed criminal offenses in connection with his efforts to overturn the election. And viewing it as a former prosecutor, I think there’s sufficient evidence to charge the president,’ Schiff said in his Sunday interview.
‘This is someone who tried to interfere with a joint session, even inciting a mob to attack the Capitol. If that’s not criminal, then – then I don’t know what it is.’
He confirmed the panel is NOT ruling out ‘criminal referral’ for GOP lawmakers accused of helping ex-president overturn 2020 election.
‘So that will be something we will be considering tomorrow,’ he said
‘We have weighed: what is the remedy for members of Congress? Is it a criminal referral to another branch of government, or is it better that the Congress police its own?’
