Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, said Tuesday that Democrats on the panel would continue their investigation into President Donald Trump and Russia, releasing a list of more than two dozen witnesses the committee has not called.
His comments came after the Republican in charge of the Russia investigation sought to clarify the conclusion from the committee’s Republicans that Russia was not trying to help Trump get elected president.
Rep. Mike Conaway, the Texas Republican running the panel’s Russia probe, acknowledged that Russia was, in fact, trying to hurt the chances of 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton — but he said whether one concludes it was designed to help Trump get elected president is a “glass half full, glass half empty” thing.
Conaway responded to CNN questions about the GOP report announced Monday that concludes the intelligence community’s assessment did not have sufficient evidence supporting its finding that Trump was aided by Russian President Vladimir Putin.
