Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) is calling on Special Counsel Robert Mueller to subpoena both President Donald Trump and his Chief of Staff John Kelly.
President will never willingly submit to an interview because his lawyers know that he‘ll either incriminate himself or fail to tell the truth. White House stonewalling is unacceptable. If Mueller needs their testimony, it’s time to subpoena Trump and others, including John Kelly https://t.co/eBEKcDhLXp

Rep. Schiff’s tweet came in response to Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani’s latest song and dance avoidance of having his client sit down and interview with Robert Mueller. Giuliani offered up a laughable claim that he and Trump aren’t trying to dodge Mueller until after the midterm elections when it is clear that they are doing everything that they can think of to make sure that the President Of The United States will not talk to the man who is investigating him for collusion with Russia during the 2016 election, obstruction of justice, and who knows how many potential financial crimes.
Trump will lie to Mueller, and there is also a high probability that he will incriminate himself.
If Democrats win control of the House in November, it will be Adam Schiff will be leading the House Russia investigation. Trump is a president on borrowed time because if Robert Mueller doesn’t get him, there is a good chance Rep. Schiff will.
