Adam Schiff launches wide probe of Trump and 'family' after failing to prove collusion
Focus to be Fusion GPS money-laundering trail
Washington Times, Feb 10, 2019, Rowan Scarborough 

[...]

The final Republican report of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence heard no witness who testified to collusion. Sen. Richard Burr, North Carolina Republican and chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, told CBS News last week that his panel’s long bipartisan Russia probe also has the same conclusion to date.

Today, Mr. Schiff, who has assumed leadership of the House Intelligence Committee, has announced a new Trump investigation that he will direct, not former Chairman Devin Nunes, California Republican.  His scope is so wide open that staffers say they can’t remember a House or Senate intelligence committee ever embarking on such a mission.

Mr. Schiff plans investigate Mr. Trump and his “family.” The use of the word family can be interpreted as his sons, daughters and first lady Melania Trump. He plans to look at Trump the businessman, the candidate and the president. He wants information on virtually all of the Trump Organization’s real estate deals and discussions with foreigners. Mr. Trump has been an international hotel builder for four decades, meaning he has had a number of contacts with foreigners.

The Schiff focus is on money laundering, according to his Feb. 6 war plan. This focus dovetails with testimony in 2017 from Glenn Simpson, the co-founder of the investigative firm Fusion GPS, which engineered the unverified dossier that claimed a huge conspiracy between the Kremlin and Trump campaign. Mr. Simpson testified to Mr. Schiff and the committee about his money-laundering suspicions but provided no evidence.

Mr. Schiff also wants to show that Mr. Trump is a foreign agent who puts money over country.

In total, what began in January 2017 as a look at any election coordination between Russia and the Trump campaign is now Mr. Schiff’s exploration into the billionaire’s adult life.

In recent months, Mr. Schiff has shifted his insinuations from Trump-Russia election collusion to Trump money-laundering, for which he says there are “credible reports.”

His suspicions have been fed by the same person who delivered the dossier — Fusion GPS’ Mr. Simpson.
