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.”

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.

Sincerely,
TPM Staff
