When MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell asked if one of the nearly 150 interviews conducted by the 1/6 Committee contained Trump officials, Rep. Schiff replied:
They include people of the previous administration. They include people in the private sector. They include people who are experts in some – for example, the problems of social media that we are investigating. So they run the range.
But I think about what it was encouraging for us is why we had the collaboration of people in the public and private sectors industry we know what to ask. And we know when we ask for the document production, e We are not getting the whole truth that we can have those parties responsible.
Rep Schiff is confirming that without Trump in the White House to threaten them to cooperate and obstruct them if they don’t cooperate, his former administration officials are turning against the former president.
Former officials don’t all have money like Trump and Steve Bannon, so they’re stepping up and not waiting for a subpoena to come.
The chair of the intelligence commission Schiff was right. Committee 1/6 has teeth and people are afraid of it. The fact that Trump administration officials are turning to Trump is a signal that the rule of law is returning.
