On This Week on Sunday, host George Stephanopoulos spoke with chair of the House intel committee Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) about the semi-imminent release of the special counsel’s report from the Russian collusion investigation. Schiff said he’s prepared to sue the administration over the release of the report.

Stephanopoulos asked Schiff what options are available to Congress if the underlying evidence and the full report from the Special Counsel’s office are not released, or if they refuse to release it.

“We will obviously subpoena the report, we will bring Bob Mueller in to testify before Congress, we will take it to court if necessary,” said Schiff. “In the end, I think the [Justice] Department understands they’re going to have to make it public.”

He said that if new Attorney General Bob Barr “were to try to withhold, to try to bury and part of this report, that will be his legacy, and it will be a tarnished legacy.”

“I think there will be immense pressure, not only on the Department, but on the Attorney General to be forthcoming,” said Schiff.

“You’re talking about public pressure,” said Stephanopoulos. “Are you prepared to take the administration to court?”

“Absolutely,” Schiff replied. “We are going to get to the bottom of this, we are going to share this information with the public, and if the president is serious about all of his claims of exoneration, then he should welcome the publication of this report.”

I gotta tell you, giving the Democrats the majority in the House may be the best thing that we have done for this country since electing Barack Obama as our President.

    ““I think it’s an important pivotal moment that could shift the dialogue away from this idea of ‘witch hunt, Deep State, this is all a bunch of baloney trumped up charges’ to ‘maybe there’s something here,’” “This person doesn’t have a lot to lose in not telling the truth at this juncture.””

    TIC TAC TIME>”kissed her without her consent and it “still causes her anguish.” “I immediately felt violated because I wasn’t expecting it or wanting it,” Johnson told the Post. “I can still see his lips coming straight for my face.”
    Johnson added that she had told her boyfriend, mother and stepfather about the incident the same day it happened, and all three individuals have confirmed this to the Post.”
    “The lawsuit, filed Monday in federal court in Florida, also makes the claim that the Trump campaign discriminated against Johnson, who is black, by paying her less than her white male counterparts. A campaign spokeswoman, Kayleigh McEnany, rejected that claim as “off-base and unfounded.”

    According to the Post:
    “Johnson said she began to consider coming forward in October 2016, after video surfaced of Trump bragging about kissing and groping women without their consent. That was the moment, she said, when she came to view the kiss as part of a pattern of Trump doing whatever he pleased to women.”

    She said she was nervous about speaking out but had come to regret having worked on the campaign. “I’ve tried to let it go,” she said, beginning to cry. “You want to move on with your life. I don’t sleep. I wake up at 4 in the morning looking at the news. I feel guilty. The only thing I did was show up for work one day.”

    For Alva Johnson the encounter with Donald Trump was a traumatic, life changing event.”
