    Newly minted House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff hinted over the weekend that he could subpoena notes or testimony from the interpreter in several meetings between President Trump and Russia's Vladimir Putin, a move that would dramatically escalate majority Democrats' investigations into the Trump administration.

    The chamber's newly empowered Democratic committee chairmen already are probing a range of Trump controversies, including calling a hearing with ex-fixer Michael Cohen who has detailed Trump's alleged role in making hush-money payments to mistresses.

    But a move to obtain interpreter details from Putin meetings would trigger a major confrontation between the executive and legislative branches concerning discussions with foreign leaders. Schiff, D-Calif., weighed in after The Washington Post reported that Trump took possession of the notes from his own interpreter and instructed the individual not to discuss what had taken place in the meeting with other administration officials.

    The report said Trump took the notes after a meeting with Putin in Hamburg in 2017 where his former secretary of state, Rex Tillerson, was present. The report also said there are no detailed records of Trump’s private meetings with Putin over the past two years, and administration officials have not gotten a full readout from their summit in Helsinki, Finland last summer. The report fueled suspicions from Democrats who have long alleged Trump is too close to Russia, and are closely watching the special counsel probe into possible collusion -- which Trump regularly pans as an unfounded "witch hunt."

    “Last year, we sought to obtain the interpreter’s notes or testimony, from the private meeting between Trump and Putin. The Republicans on our committee voted us down. Will they join us now? Shouldn’t we find out whether our president is really putting ‘America first?’” Schiff tweeted on Sunday.

    Did pencil neck ever hear of Executive Privelage?...The surrender monkey did it for Eric Holder with Fast & Furious!

    Great idea, let’s make sure that no foreign leader ever feels comfortable having a private discussion with an American president again.

    It’s way past time for Trump to turn the tables on these Democrat ass-hats. It would be interesting to get some insight into how Nancy Pelosi and Maxine Waters got so wealthy for starters.

    How much should Schiff spend on his investigations? 1 million? 2 million? As much time as Mueller? Should he call on Rosenstein? Comey? He either works for OUR greater good, or he is just a Democrat revenge tool.

    The Democratic Party's war on President Trump is fueled mostly by their fanatical hatred for the men and women who voted for him.
    His supporters are just average mainstream middle class Americans.
    Intelligent Voters know that the Troglocrats are liars.
    They know that they are motivated by hate, fear and greed.
    Their thinly veiled coup will backfire on them.

    Since there has been no oversight of Trump's actions until now, it's only reasonable that we ask questions that should have already been asked. This is what happens when the people charged with oversight decide to cover for their president's illegal actions instead. It's time to go back and catch up on the work that the right refused to do.
