Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) reacted to Paul Manafort's prison sentence and new claims President Trump may have tried to interfere in the investigation of former attorney Michael Cohen. Schiff said there is a "growing body of evidence" that President Trump committed obstruction of justice. Last month, the Congressman said there is "compelling" evidence "in plain sight" of Trump-Russia collusion.
"This is a president who has had no compunction about directly interfering in an investigation which he's implicated," Schiff told MSNBC host Lawrence O'Donnell. "He does it every day. By bashing Mueller, by dangling pardons, by firing the FBI director. I think what we saw today, both in the developments in the Cohen side of things and these new e-mails that were publicly disclosed, but as well the conversation that Chairman [Jerrold] Nadler had, with Matt Whitaker. A growing body of evidence of obstruction of justice. I think that's really the significance of what's come out today."
