Rep. Adam Schiff of California, the top Democrat on the committee, said the Republican’s decision to end the Russian probe ia “terrible disservice to the country and the American people,” and released a 21-page “status report” laying out the Democrat’s case to continue the probe.
“The decision to shut down the investigation before key witnesses could be interviewed and vital documentary evidence obtained will prevent us from fully discharging our duty to the House and to the American people,” the report from the Democrats said. The report further explained that there is a long list of witnesses the committee had not yet interviewed, or received enough information and documents from, when the Republicans on the committee deemed the investigation complete.
Rep. Schiff said, “We are going to do our best to continue our work. There are individuals who want to cooperate with our committee and share information, and will continue to do so. We will be putting together a report that will set out for the country what evidence we have seen to date.”
