BREAKING: Schiff makes announcement on releasing impeachment inquiry transcripts to the public
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by TheHill.com:
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) said in a letter Wednesday that interview transcripts from closed-door impeachment inquiry depositions will be made public when they do not “jeopardize investigative equities.”
The Dear Colleague letter is designed to counter arguments from Republicans in both the White House and Congress that Democrats are conducting an invalid investigation, since their witness interviews are being held behind closed doors, outside the eyes of the public and lawmakers who don’t sit on the three committees leading the investigations.
The article goes on to state the following:
“At a time that it will not jeopardize investigative equities, we will make the interview transcripts public, subject to any necessary redactions for classified or sensitive information,” Schiff wrote.
Schiff also said the committee will be “taking witness testimony in public” giving the “full Congress and the American people” access to firsthand testimony “at an appropriate point in the investigation.”
