That didn't take long.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report on the Russia investigation has been delivered, and with it came no recommendations for indictments, and no sealed indictments.
That is not the end of the story, and the details of the report are not public yet. Other investigations are still underway, too, but the result of this primary and by far most important of investigations into the question of the Trump campaign and Russia is concluded. Mueller is done with his investigation.
But that doesn't mean Democrats are done with the Mueller investigation.
On CNN, chief among those relentlessly after Trump collusion with Russia has been Rep. Adam Schiff of California, who is chair of the House intel committee. In a phone interview with CNN shortly after the news dropped that the investigation was complete, he turned immediately away from the issue of indictments for Trump and associates and instead into getting the details of the report to his committee.[ia_video https://s3.amazonaws.com/roar-assets-auto.rbl.ms/runner%2F9969-Schiff%2BWants%2Bto%2BSubpoena%2BMueller.mp4 source="https://s3.amazonaws.com/roar-assets-auto.rbl.ms/runner%2F9969-Schiff%2BWants%2Bto%2BSubpoena%2BMueller.mp4" autoplay=true caption="Adam Schiff ready to subpoena Mueller" attribution="CNN" feedbacks=true shortcode_id=1553309270689 expand=1 ]
Schiff says that if the DOJ doesn't "cooperate" with their demands for the details, "we will have to subpoena the evidence, we will have to subpoena Mueller or others to come before the congress and answer questions."
He still thinks there may be evidence in the report of collusion, regardless of Mueller's decision not to recommend any indictments.
"If there is evidence of a compromise, whether it arises as a result of criminal conduct or not, it needs to be exposed." said Schiff.
