Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., the lead House impeachment manager at President Donald Trump’s Senate trial, said Sunday he wouldn’t have changed any strategy even as the upper chamber is expected later this week to acquit the president.

In an interview on CBS News’ “Face The Nation,” said there’s bipartisan acknowledgement of the facts presented by the House.

"Look, there's nothing that I can see that we could have done differently, because as the Senators have already admitted, we've proved our case. We proved our case.”

He also said the fact that the House impeached Trump matters.

"I still think it's enormously important that the president was impeached because the country is moving away from its democratic ideals,” he said.

Calling the charges “merely inappropriate doesn’t begin to do justice to the gravity of this president’s misconduct,” Schiff said, adding: “We are helping to slow the momentum away from our democratic values…I’m not letting the Senators off the hook… the Senators will be held accountable.”

Schiff refused to comment on whether the House will subpoena former national security adviser John Bolton, whose upcoming book corroborates Democrats’ charges against Trump — and claimed the Justice Department revealed to a court it was withholding documents from the Office of Management and Budget showing personal motivations in the Ukraine pressure by Trump.

“They waited until midnight so that Senators voting on whether to compel these documents would not have that information,” he charged. “That shows you the lengths to which the president's lawyers are going to cover this up. But they're going to fail. Indeed, they failed already. 

“And the senators are going to have to answer the question over time as more and more comes out, ‘why didn't you do more to find this out before you had to render your verdict? Why bury your head in the sand when you knew this information was out there?’”
