Speaking to MSNBC host Rachel Maddow, who has had her share of bloopers of late, Rep. Adam Schiff took aim at the Vice-President.
“You seem to still be pulling on some threads here, including some potentially provocative and consequential ones,” Maddow said.
“I’m thinking specifically about a letter that you sent to the vice president’s office this week in which you raise questions as to what the vice president knew about the president’s behavior, the president’s scheme in Ukraine, and thereby essentially his potential involvement in any coverup of that behavior by the president,” she said.
“Are you actively looking at Vice President Mike Pence and his role in this scandal, and should we expect further revelations either related to the vice president or related to the other core parts of these allegations that have resulted in this impeachment tonight?” she said.
“We have acquired a piece of evidence,” Rep. Schiff said, “a classified submission by Jennifer Williams (an aide to the Vice president).
“Something that she alluded to in her open testimony that, in going back and looking through her records, she found other information that was pertinent to that phone call that we had asked her about and made that submission.
“That submission does shed light on the vice president’s knowledge,” he said to the MSNBC host.
Schiff made reference to the fact that Vice President Pence said he would not give the representative access to sensitive documents previously as if that determines guilt.
“It just goes to show that there is a body of evidence,” he said, “documentary and otherwise, that administration figures from the president on down to include the vice president do not want the American people to see or know.
“The question is, will they succeed? Will the coverup succeed? Or will the Senate insist on what we were not able to obtain in the House, and that is a White House that will comply with lawful process,” he said.
