Jim Himes, D-Conn., during the committee's hearing on the Mueller report on June 12, 2019. A top Democrat on Wednesday threatened to subpoena the FBI over the counterintelligence investigation from which the Russia probe evolved and to discover whether that original investigation is still ongoing.

Representative Adam Schiff, Democratic chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said the FBI has not cooperated in providing answers, leaving him to threaten a subpoena for the bureau's director, Christopher Wray. As a member of the Intelligence Committee and the so-called "gang of eight" — a small group of top congressional leaders — Schiff is provided access to classified information on a routine basis.

Schiff says Intel panel will hold 'series of hearings' on Mueller report

Schiff says Intel panel will hold 'series of hearings' on Mueller report House Intel Chairman Adam Schiff said the first hearing will focus on the original counterintelligence investigation into Russian meddling.

whatsoever in this Russia probe , we are going to find out whether he made commitments to the president about the probe , whether he is serving as a back channel to the president or his lawyers about the probe , whether he’s doing anything to interfere with the probe ,” Adam Schiff , the incoming.

"We are determined to get answers, and we are running out of patience," Schiff told reporters, failing to provide a definitive timeline of when he would issue a subpoena. "If necessary, we'll subpoena the [FBI] director and require him to come in and provide those answers under oath."

Thus far, Schiff said the FBI has only provided him a "generic statement of process."

"That's not going to cut it," he continued. "If there are ongoing counterintelligence investigations involving people around the president, they must inform us. We're going to use whatever compulsion is necessary to get those answers."

Schiff's remarks came after the first in a series of hearings on Russia's attempts to subvert the 2016 presidential election, which is documented in former special counsel Robert Mueller's report. Wednesday's hearing witnesses included former FBI officials.

Schiff: Intelligence agencies focused on Russian interference 'even if the president isn't'

Schiff: Intelligence agencies focused on Russian interference 'even if the president isn't' House Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) reacted Sunday to a New York Times report on U.S. intelligence agencies' efforts against Russian election meddling that drew President Trump's ire. "Certainly I think the intelligence community is training its focus and resources on the Russian threat even if the president isn't," Schiff said Sunday on CBS' "Face the Nation.

Congressman Adam Schiff , who spent two years knowingly and unlawfully lying and leaking, should be forced to resign from Congress! Schiff argued that he still believes there is ample evidence of collusion and said he’s long insisted such evidence may or may not rise to the level of a criminal charge.

Incoming House intelligence chair says he would do all in his power to make report of inquiry into collusion with Russia public.

Mueller's 448-page report concluded that the Russians tried to interfere in a "sweeping and systematic fashion," and that their goal was to aid then-candidate Donald Trump to defeat Hillary Clinton.

"(T)here were multiple, systematic efforts to interfere in our election," Mueller said last month during his only public statement since he became head of the investigation. "And that allegation deserves the attention of every American."

In his opening remarks, Schiff questioned how the FBI's counterintelligence investigation of Trump differed from Mueller's criminal probe.

"Mueller's report provides no evaluation of the counterintelligence concerns raised ... he left many critical questions unanswered," Schiff said. "What happened to the counterintelligence investigation? Were there other forms of compromise, like money laundering, left out, uninvestigated or referred to other offices? Were individuals granted security clearances that shouldn't have them? And are there individuals still operating in the Administration that leave America vulnerable?"
