Rep. Schiff: ‘I Have to Hope this Is Not Part of a Broader Campaign by the W.H.’
REPORTER: "You said he also called the NSA and I think the FBI.
SCHIFF: "You'd have to ask the chairman. Again, we have no idea where these documents came from, where they even show what they purport to show. But even if they do on the basis of what the chairman said, the underlying fact is still the same. There's no evidence to support the president's contention that he was wiretapped by his predecessor. I'm not sure of what the point of this extraordinary process is, and I have to hope that this is not part of a broader campaign by the White House aimed to deflect from the director's testimony earlier this week. But again, not having seen the documents, not having the chairman share those documents with either Democrats or Republicans on the committee, there's simply no way for us to evaluate."
