WATCH: Schiff Still Wants To Investigate Trump Over Debunked BuzzFeed Report


House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff said Sunday he will “absolutely” investigate allegations made in a controversial BuzzFeed article even though the report has been directly disputed by the special counsel’s office.

“Absolutely. Absolutely,” Schiff told CBS’s “Face the Nation” when asked whether he would investigate allegations laid out in a BuzzFeed article published Thursday.

“Congress has a fundamental interest in two things. First, getting to the bottom of why this witness came before us and lied, and who else was knowledgeable that this was a lie,” the California Democrat added.

BuzzFeed reported former Trump attorney Michael Cohen told the special counsel’s office President Donald Trump instructed him to lie to Congress about his efforts to build a Trump Tower in Moscow. The website also reported documents and witness testimony would corroborate Cohen’s statements to prosecutors.



Schiff and other Democrats immediately pounced on the report, calling for an investigation into whether Trump obstructed justice or suborned perjury by instructing Cohen to lie to Congress.

But in a rare move, the special counsel issued an on-the-record statement disputing the key allegations made in the BuzzFeed story.



“BuzzFeed’s description of specific statements to the Special Counsel’s Office, and characterization of documents and testimony obtained by this office, regarding Michael Cohen’s Congressional testimony are not accurate,” Peter Carr, a spokesman for special counsel Robert Mueller, said in a statement Friday night.
