Grassley: Hope Trump doesn't call me about Russian Federation probe

"And that leaves some very important questions unanswered".

Schiff blamed the chairman of the House intelligence committee, Republican Rep. Devin Nunes, for the fact that the committee has interviewed "less than half of the number of witnesses" as the Senate intelligence committee, which is also conducting a Russian Federation probe, maintaining that "the chairman has a different agenda", PBS News Hour reported.

Finger-pointing and acrimony surrounding probes of Russian meddling in the 2016 USA election intensified Thursday, with the Trump White House and Democratic lawmakers trading accusations of undermining and manipulating investigations that require bipartisan buy-in to succeed.

He said that the House Intelligence Committee has spoken to 56 witnesses, fewer than half of the number in the Senate Intelligence Committee. "The only exception I make is when people refuse to answer questions because I don't allow them to leave the room and say we cooperated fully".

Schiff placed the blame largely on Republican Devin Nunes, saying the GOP chairman of the committee - who stepped aside from running the investigation for much of past year - has blocked dozens of requests for witnesses and subpoenas, with the support of House Speaker Paul Ryan.

It's true that Mueller's probe hasn't yet turned up any evidence of collusion between Trump's campaign and the Russian government, or at least hasn't released any such evidence publicly. CNN published stories about some of Trump Jr.'s comments while his interview was still being conducted.

President Donald Trump on Wednesday morning again labeled the probe into potential coordination between his associates and Russian Federation the "single greatest witch hunt" in U.S. history. And he says the GOP has not supported efforts to get information from the White House about the firing of former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey, saying the White House has ignored bipartisan requests while the GOP has done little to pursue it. "He couldn't change the libel laws if he wanted to change the libel laws, he couldn't change them if he got the Congress in there". He declined to say whom these individuals were when asked.

Schiff blamed House intelligence committee chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif, who stepped aside from the probe for several months while the House Ethics Committee investigated whether Nunes had divulged classified information.

"That is treason. See, that's treason right there", Trump said.

It "would be valuable to have [Ivanka] come and testify before the committee", he added, according to Politico.
