‘A Very Stable Genius’

Michele and Igor chat with Rep. Adam Schiff about developments in the Russia investigation and the invoking the 25th Amendment to address President Trump's mental health.

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), ranking member on the House Intelligence Committee, joins Michele and Igor to break down the latest developments in the Russia investigation. He also comments on the allegations made in Michael Wolff’s Fire and Fury, that President Donald Trump may not be fit for office, and weighs in on whether impeachment or invoking the 25th Amendment may be necessary. Max Bergmann—Thinking CAP’s own Russia correspondent—explains the proposed criminal charges against Christopher Steele by Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Chuck Grassley (R-IA) on the Senate side of the Russia investigation, as well as the “sneaky” release by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) of the full transcript of the Fusion GPS interview yesterday. And of course, everyone weighs in on whether or not they think Oprah should run for president.
