Schiff: We may get to impeachment

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) U.S. House Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff said on Sunday impeachment proceedings could be an 'additional tool' to obtain information the Trump administration has refused to provide.

Speaking on CBS' Face the Nation, Schiff said, "What we have been doing is we have been gradually escalating the tactics we need to use to get information for the American people.

So we began by asking for voluntary cooperation, and that was not forthcoming.

We followed with subpoenas, we followed with contempt.

We may follow with inherent contempt, and we may have to follow with impeachment." Schiff had recently issued a subpoena to the Justice Department to obtain special counsel Robert Mueller's unredacted report, in addition to other material and documents gathered during the 22-month investigation.
