Schiff: Petraeus Testimony Giving ‘Respectability to a Committee that Has None Left’

‘They have been attempting this through additional interviews to make it look like the committee is something other than Secretary Clinton’

RUSH TRANSCRIPT: 
MITCHELL: "And joining me now, top Democrat on the house intelligence committee, congressman Adam Schiff, thank you for joining me. Your testimony and more coming later in the week.
SCHIFF: "The real answer is cover. They have been attempting this through additional interviews to make it look like the committee is something other than Secretary Clinton. But there was no reason they couldn’t have brought the general in a year ago or six months ago and a year and a half ago. The general has been in front of Congress three times on this issue saying there’s no politicalization in these events. And it began spontaneously. Those facts were wrong but it was the best estimate at the time. So I guess we’ll hear the general say the same things all over again today, just as a way of, I think, going through the motions, giving the respectability to a committee that really has none left."
