Adam Schiff: We’re Unsure if We Will Move Forward with Contempt Charges on Steve Bannon

‘We still haven’t gotten an answer, frankly, on whether we will move forward with contempt on Steve Bannon’

EXCERPT:

SCHIFF: "We had ample representation during the interview. We still haven’t gotten an answer, frankly, on whether we will move forward with contempt on Steve Bannon. They were quite unequivocal at the time on the need to insist on answers, but have been very quiet since. So I think they’re still grappling with this. There’s really no way to distinguish these witnesses except some are in favor and some are out of favor at the White House. That is not a legitimate basis to distinguish when it comes to whether we compel people to give us the information and the facts we need. In terms of the investigation going forward, there are any number of witnesses that are very relevant that have not come before our committee. Those that had a role, for example, in writing the speech that President Trump gave prior to the Trump Tower meeting where he promised he would be revealing things about Hillary Clinton. We know Steve Miller had a role in his speech writing and he’s not been brought before the committee."
