Ain’t no shade like political shade.
House Intelligence Committee member and Texas representative Joaquin Castro dropped some serious info about the ongoing investigation into the ties between Russia and the Trump campaign during the 2016 election.
In an interview with Wolf Blitzer on CNN, Rep. Castro talked about what he and the committee are looking into and what they want from those involved in the investigation. According to Castro, one of the biggest issues so far in the investigation is that the Trump administration is not being “honest or forthright about the deep connections that many on the Trump team have to Russia, Russian agents, [and] Russian businesspersons.” Back in March, California Representative and Ranking Member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Adam Schiff laid out the lengthy list of evidence mounted against the Trump administration and their ties to Russia.
But the real juicy part of this interview came after Blitzer asked Castro if he had seen any “hard evidence of collusion” from Trump aides to Russia. Castro responded simply by saying:
“I guess I would say this. My impression is that I wouldn’t be surprised that after all of this is said in done that some people end up in jail,” Castro told Blitzer.
Castro was not able to elaborate on his point because of the ongoing investigation but one thing is for sure, this Russia investigation is just getting started.
