Schiff says Trump aims to disparage Russia probe

WASHINGTON (AP) — The top Democrat on the House intelligence committee says President Donald Trump is trying to “disparage” the FBI and congressional investigations into Russian election meddling.

Rep. Adam Schiff told The Associated Press on Tuesday that by undermining the credibility of the probes, “no matter what is produced (he) can say it’s a fake.”

Trump has said the investigation led by special counsel Robert Mueller has nothing to do with him.

Schiff told the AP that his committee is probing “anyone and everyone affiliated with the Trump campaign” and the interactions they had with the Russians. He would not say whether his committee has shared any evidence of criminal conduct with Mueller.
