"We asked Michael Cohen about this extensively", said Schiff.

On Capitol Hill, Democrats are largely lining up behind House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her wait-and-see strategy on any impeachment proceedings against Trump.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) said Tuesday that there is already sufficient evidence to warrant a criminal indictment of President Donald Trump. Trump also plays a central role in a separate case in NY, where prosecutors have implicated him in a crime.

He added: 'The president was secretly pursuing a business deal in Russia, Moscow Trump tower, through much of the campaign, concealing it form the public, seeking the Kremlin's approval to make that happen, at the same time he was espousing a different policy towards Russia, a more favorable policy towards Russia'. NY prosecutors also are looking into Trump's inaugural fund.

But Schiff stated: 'The reality is that the Republican Members of Congress, with very few exceptions, have been utterly unwilling to stand up to this president in any way, ' pointing to Trump's emergency declaration on building a wall on the U.S. -Mexico border.

As for Fleetwood, he showed impressive powers of recovery with a 68 after a third-round 76 on Saturday , to finish tied third. He becomes the fifth South African victor of this event after Darren Fichardt, Ernie Els, Retief Goosen and Branden Grace.

There is no smoking gun when it comes to the question of Russian Federation collusion.

There is evidence that some people in Trump's orbit were discussing a possible email dump from WikiLeaks before it occurred. He pleaded guilty to a number of crimes previous year, including lying to Congress about Trump's hoped-for condominium tower in Moscow, as well as arranging the hush-money payments before the 2016 election to Daniels as well as to a former Playboy model. Investigators have examined key episodes such as Trump's firing of FBI Director James Comey and Trump's fury over Attorney General Jeff Sessions' recusal.

Speaking to CNN Monday night, Schiff, who has been the Democrats' point man on investigations into the Trump White House, the Trump campaign, and the Trump corporation, devoting hundreds of man hours to subpoenaing and questioning witnesses and collecting documents, denied that impeachment is the end game.

Schiff also said he believes Mueller was constrained by former acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker, who he said was "appointed because he would be hostile to a subpoena on the president" and current Attorney General William Barr "who was chosen for the same hostility to his investigation".

Schiff also spoke about impeachment the day after Pelosi said it was "not worth" impeaching Trump. But he gave no specific timetable.
