Schiff told CNN’s Jim Acosta erstwhile asked astir the chances of getting to question Steve Bannon:
I deliberation the chances are actually precise good. And if we were going the route of civilian litigation, arsenic we had to bash during the last administration due to the fact that during the past administration, the Justice Department was essentially serving the needs of Donald Trump, not representing the nationalist interest. And they were not astir to prosecute radical for covering up for Donald Trump.
But it’s a new world now. We’re not going to beryllium choosing to spell the civilian route. We are close present connected Tuesday night going to beryllium taking up a criminal contempt report. It’ll beryllium taken up subsequently in the House of Representatives. It volition beryllium sent to the Justice Department for prosecution.
And that is simply a acold swifter, far more superior remedy. And the information that if the justice department prosecutes Steve Bannon, different witnesses volition see they volition look existent consequences including jailhouse clip and potentially stiff fines. That is simply a mode of getting people’s attention. Bannon’s an important witnesser in his ain right, but it’s also important to nonstop a connection that the regularisation of instrumentality is backmost and people are going to request to pay attention.
Chairman Schiff is an expert. He brought up an important constituent that astir of the media sum is leaving out. Criminal prosecution is faster. It is simply a antithetic process. If the Justice Department acts rapidly and each aboriginal denotation is that they will, it won’t beryllium months oregon years earlier Steve Bannon is criminally charged, but weeks.
A US Attorney volition instrumentality the lawsuit to a expansive assemblage and they volition contented an indictment.
There volition beryllium nary dragging retired of arguing motions and tribunal dates.
One suspects that erstwhile Bannon is looking astatine sitting successful a jailhouse cell, helium is going to sing.
There is nary DOJ to tally interference for Trump and his pals anymore.
It is simply a caller world, and the 1/6 Committee is astir to bring backmost the regularisation of law.
