During an interview on Sunday with CNN, far-left congressman Adam Schiff indicated that he won’t comply with any future GOP lead investigations into him as he lashed out against former President Donald Trump.
The comments from Schiff came in response to Rep. James Comer’s recent comments about potential investigations.
“The incoming oversight chair, James Comer, told Punchbowl News in an interview, ‘I don’t believe congressional investigations have a whole lot of credibility now. I blame Adam Schiff for that, but it’s also both parties to blame for investigations in the past. I want to change that.’ What’s your response?” asked CNN’s Dana Bash.
“Comer doesn’t believe in the Russia investigation, in the Ukraine investigation, he doesn’t believe in the investigation of January 6th,” Schiff lashed out. “Why? Because those are investigations of the serial abuse of power by Donald Trump.”
“Comer and Jordan and McCarthy will do nothing but carry Donald Trump’s water,” he whined. “Someone who is sitting down for dinner with anti-semites, who is sitting down for dinner with bigots who won’t condemn them. This is who they’re making common cause with. They will do and say what they need to do.”
Bash finished off the interview by asking Schiff if he would comply with GOP investigations into him.

“We’re out of time but I have to ask,” Bash said. “If you are subpoenaed by Republicans when they take over, will you comply?”
“We’ll have to consider the validity of the subpoena,” Schiff replied. “I would certainly view my obligation, the administration’s obligation to follow the law and the fact that they have disrespected the law is not a precedent I would hope that would be broadly followed. We’ll have to look at the the legitimacy or lack of legitimacy of what they do.”
