Adam Schiff sidesteps question on accepting subpoena to testify in Trump impeachment trial

by Daniel Chaitin | Washington Examiner  |  Published on January 14, 2020

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff skirted around the question of whether he would adhere to a subpoena to testify in a Senate impeachment trial against President Trump.

The California Democrat, who led the House impeachment hearings, claimed during Monday’s episode of The View that submitting to Republican witness demands would turn the trial into a “sham.”

Referring to Trump’s tweet over the weekend calling for Schiff and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi be witnesses, co-host Abby Huntsman, who announced she is leaving The View after two seasons to help run her father’s gubernatorial campaign in Utah, asked, “Would you, if asked, be willing to testify, if subpoenaed?”

Schiff argued that it would not make sense for him and Pelosi to be called to testify on Trump’s actions related to Ukraine, which are subject to the impeachment effort.
