Schiff: 'Will Have to Consider the Validity' of GOP Subpoenas

By    |   Sunday, 27 November 2022 04:54 PM EST

Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., on Sunday said he would "have to consider the validity" of any subpoena from Republicans when they take control of the House in the next Congress.

"We will have to consider the validity of the subpoena. But I would certainly view my obligation, the administration's obligation, to follow the law," Schiff said on CNN's "State of the Union."

"The fact that they have disrespected the law is not a precedent I would hope that would be broadly followed. But we will have to look at the legitimacy or lack of legitimacy of what they do," Schiff, the current House Intelligence Committee chairman, added.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., who is eyeing to replace Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., as speaker when the GOP gains control of the lower chamber, said he'll target Schiff.

McCarthy stated earlier this month his intention to remove Schiff along with Democrat Reps. Eric Swalwell of California and Ilhan Omar of Minnesota from their respective committee roles.

McCarthy is among several Republicans who plan to probe Democrat actions or inactions related to the U.S.-Mexico border crisis, the botched withdrawal from Afghanistan and the COVID-19 pandemic.
