The top Democrat on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence revealed to Capitol Hill reporters on Wednesday that there is more evidence against President Donald Trump than has been revealed publicly.
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) said the evidence involves the crimes of collusion, obstruction of justice, and money laundering, The Guardian reported.
â€œThere is certainly an abundance of non-public information that weâ€™ve gathered in the investigation,â€ Rep. Schiff continued. â€œAnd I think some of that non-public evidence is evidence on the issue of collusion and some â€¦ on the issue of obstruction.â€
â€œIt is a tried and true maxim. As a former prosecutor, you follow the money,â€ the former assistant U.S. Attorney.
â€œWe have not been able to adequately follow the money. And I think the allegations on money laundering are credible enough that we ought to, in the exercise of due diligence, see if this was one of the other vectors of the Russian active measures campaign,â€ Schiff explained.
Schiff also referenced the rumored Trump sex tape.
â€œWe know that in other places they use money laundering as a way of entangling people, as a way of compromising people,â€ he added. â€œTo me that is far more potentially compromising than any salacious video would be.â€
