Schiff: ‘This Is a President with Very Little Allegiance to Fact’

‘And he may be able to get away with that on the stump, but it’s quite a different matter when he’s speaking either under oath or under penalty of perjury’

RUSH EXCERPT:
SCHIFF: "I can understand why the president’s lawyers are concerned. This is a president with very little allegiance to fact. And he may be able to get away with that on the stump, but it’s quite a different matter when he’s speaking either under oath or under penalty of perjury, should he falsely testify or falsely state something during an interview with special counsel. But, while it may limit the questioning in the sense of, okay, this won’t be necessary, I still think a very lengthy and detailed live and in-person interview is going to be necessary."
