Adam Schiff: The J6 Committee is “So Far Out Ahead of the Justice Department” [VIDEO]

Over the course of the last month, the January 6th Committee has laid out a case against Donald Trump and his cabinet. The evidence has been compelling and with each hearing, the situation seems to be getting worse for the former President.

In addition to laying out their case to the American people, the committee is also revealing its finding to the Department of Justice. And according to Adam Schiff, the committee is way ahead of the DOJ.

The California Congressman and Ari Melber were discussing a recent piece by former prosecutor Andrew Weissman, where he noted that the DOJ has many more tools to investigate Trump. Melber asked Schiff, “Do you share Mr. Weismann’s concern Could the DOJ be doing more, quickly?”

“I very much share his concern,” the congressman responded. “I have been expressing a similar concern, really, for months now. It is so unprecedented, and I’ve been part of many congressional investigations that have been contemporaneous with justice department investigations, but it is unprecedented for Congress to be so far out ahead of the justice department.”

Schiff later added:

“I think if they take that too far – the desire to avoid controversy – and they somehow in practical effect immunize the former president because it would be controversial to investigate a former president, that’s a political decision and I think a very dangerous one.”
