Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the likely incoming chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, says Democrats will subpoena special counsel Robert Mueller’s report if President Trump tries to invoke executive privilege to keep it secret.
“I’m prepared to make sure we do everything possible so that the public has the advantage of as much of the information as it can,” Schiff said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
Rudy Giuliani, a lawyer for the president and a leading spokesman for his legal team, in September predicted that Trump may object to Mueller’s report being released to the public, arguing it could violate executive privilege.
Schiff on Sunday said parts of the report may have to be held back, but argued that the public deserves to have access to it.
“We ought to make sure this report is public. Now, there may be parts of the report that have to be redacted because they involve classified information or they involve grand jury material,” he said. – READ MORE
