Congress’ Russia probe may include Trump children

No one – not even President Trump’s children – will be off limits as Congress starts to investigate purported contacts between the Trump campaign and Russian officials.

“I don’t think anyone is beyond the scope of what we need to look at,” said Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), the ranking Democrat on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, when asked whether the probe will look into an October appearance by Donald Trump Jr. at a French think tank with such strong ties to Russia, it nominated Vladimir Putin for a Nobel Peace Prize.

Schiff said the trip is one of numerous connections documented between Trump campaign advisors and people with close Russian ties.

“The sheer number of meetings that have now been acknowledged by the Trump people, the fact that the Trump people have tried to conceal these meetings, it all begs the question of where is this coming from and why,” Schiff said.
