Schiff: I have 'nothing' to testify about if called for impeachment trial

Adam Schiff rips John Bolton for refusing to testify in impeachment probe

"That investigative work will go on but what we're not prepared to do is wait months and months while the administration plays a game of rope-a-dope in an effort to stall", he said.

Trump and his Republican allies allege that Schiff and members of the Intelligence panel coordinated with the whistleblower who revealed the president's July 25 telephone name with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky by which he requested for an investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, who had been on the board of a pure fuel firm within the nation.

Rep. Lee represents one of the 31 congressional districts that President Trump won during the 2016 presidential election and that Democrats flipped during the 2018 midterm elections. Other witnesses have defied White House instructions to testify under subpoena.

Trump also said Democrats should focus on legislative work instead of the impeachment inquiry.

Asked directly by Tapper whether he would testify, Schiff said he wouldn't comment.

South Korean singer Goo Hara’s death exposes pressures of K-pop stardom
No other person visited Goo Hara's home between that time and her housekeeper discovering her physique at 6pm. But instead, even a single mistake can lead to numerous online torture, bullying, and criticisms for years.

"Even as we compile this report, even as we submit evidence to the Judiciary Committee, we're going to continue our investigation", Schiff said on NBC's "Meet the Press" program.

President Trump's legal team will also have a formal chance to participate in the judiciary proceedings.

The money - approved by the U.S. Congress to help Ukraine combat Russia-backed separatists in the eastern part of the country - was later provided to Kiev in September after the controversy had spilled into public view.

"Yes. Oh, yes", Schiff said.

Today he writes in the Times, "To my fellow Republicans, I give this grave and genuine warning: It's not enough merely to dismiss the Ukraine investigation as a partisan witch hunt or to hide behind attacks against the "deep state", or to try to find some reason to denounce every witness who steps forward, from decorated veterans to Trump megadonors". A lawyer for Parnas has said he would comply with the document request and is willing to appear before the House panel.
