House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff said his panel would consider subpoenaing an American interpreter who took notes during a meeting between President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin.
“We certainly could subpoena the interpreter. We could subpoena the interpreter’s notes. The question is on what basis will they refuse, because they will refuse, and what is our chance of success on that?” Schiff said during a Wednesday interview on CNN. “I think we have to look at is there a method for us to get that information voluntarily? Is there a way to assure the country that the president, behind closed doors, is not sacrificing the interests of the country? It’s always our preference to get voluntary cooperation before we consider compulsion.”
The article goes on to state the following:
The California Democrat’s comments come after his counterpart in the Senate, Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr, R-N.C., said he would not seek the interpreter’s notes.
Adam Schiff on the Trump-Putin meetings on CNN: “It looks to me on the surface that they don’t have much of an executive privilege claim to make … We certainly could subpoena the interpreter. We could subpoena the interpreter’s notes.”
