Schiff Calls on DOJ to Investigate Trump Lawyers for ‘Suborning Perjury’

Democrat Representative Adam Schiff has been a stubborn rock in America’s shoe for the last six years, and he continues to dig into our heel.

On Thursday, pencil-neck appeared on MSNBC’s “All In” and called on the Department of Justice to be looking “long and hard” at former President Donald Trump’s lawyers and aides. He believes that they could be charged with suborning perjury following the January 6 House Select Committee release of reports and transcripts of testimony.

He seems to be moving quick to keep the spotlight on absolutely anyone else by himself.

MSNBC host Ali Velshi said in reference to Ben Williamson, top aide for Mark Meadows, “One of the things that came out as well in the Cassidy Hutchinson transcripts is Ben Williamson, who’s the person who called Cassidy Hutchinson before her second interview with the committee and said, ‘Mark knows you are loyal. You will protect him and the boss.’ Liz Cheney, your colleague on the committee, wanted to go down that road not just because those are unusual things to say, but she wanted to explore to what degree witnesses were subject to something that feels a little bit like intimidation possibly.”

Schiff replied, “I think this has been a big concern of ours. Some of these witnesses have the same council, paid for by sources they weren’t ready to disclose to the witnesses. And if people are told, ‘Hey, the boss is going to be watching this. He’s going to read the transcripts. He will know what you have to say. You are a team player.’”

He continued, “Things like that are absolutely designed to influence testimony. Now whether that is a prosecutable offense, you know, I think some of the statements that you related to us earlier where the witnesses said, hey, I just said things I don’t recall things, I do recall things, and the attorney says that’s just fine. I agree. That crosses the line.”

Schiff added, “The Justice Department is going to have to look long and hard at that and decide whether they believe they can prove an effort to suborn perjury or illicit a false statement beyond a reasonable doubt.”
