Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., on Sunday was unapologetic about charges of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, despite findings of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation,, saying “we should hold our elected officials to a higher standard.”
In an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union,” the lawmaker said “there is a different standard between Republicans and the Democrats.”
“The Republicans seem to think as long as you can't prove it's a crime, all is fair in love and war, that it's all okay, what the Trump administration, what the Trump campaign does,” he said. “I don't feel that way. I don't think most Americans feel that way.”
“I’m not going to stop making the point that we should hold our elected officials to a higher standard,” he said.
“I don't regret calling out this president for deeply unethical and improper conduct,” he added. “Not a bit… you've asked the question many times, is there risk of doing too much oversight. There is a risk when you have an immoral president, a president lacking in basic character who violates the norms of office, an even greater risk of doing too little oversight. I make no apologies for that. I'll continue holding this administration accountable.”
