House Intel Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) refuses to accept Attorney General William Barr’s summary of the Mueller report, insisting that “undoubtedly there is collusion.”

“We will continue to investigate the counterintelligence issues,” he added to the Washington Post. “That is, is the President or people around him compromised in any way by a hostile foreign power? It doesn’t appear that was any part of Mueller’s report.”

He said that his committee may well dredge up “deeply compromising” evidence that just happened to fall outside the limited scope of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.

Schiff has become a big target for President Donald Trump and his allies after the release of Barr’s report, with the President even bestowing upon him a new moniker: “pencil neck.”
