Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) said Sunday that former informal adviser to President Trump, Roger Stone, could be “vulnerable” to charges of lying to Congress.
Schiff, who is set to become the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, made the comments while appearing on ABC’s “This Week,” saying that Stone’s testimony before the panel in 2017 “needs to be provided to the special counsel for consideration of whether perjury charges are warranted.”
Schiff also said that Stone’s email correspondence with his associate Jerome Corsi, which Stone released publicly, was “inconsistent with his testimony before our committee.”
“It also looks like Mr. Stone was attempting to enlist Mr. Corsi’s help in covering for false testimony,” Schiff added. “So I think the testimony alone is reason for great exposure for Mr. Stone.”
