News Shapers: Steny Hoyer, Susan Collins and Adam Schiff

Rep. Adam Schiff speaks to Mike about the consequences of releasing the Nunes memo.

Mike Allen hosted a morning-after State of the Union discussion with members of Congress from both sides of the aisle.

Why it mattered: House Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer gave his midterm predictions. Sen. Susan Collins discussed her role as a neutralizing force during the government shutdown. And Rep. Adam Schiff, a leading voice on the Russia investigation, discussed the implications of releasing the Nunes memo.

Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, says that the memo will be a letdown for the right--containing nothing that obviously invalidates the Russian investigation or would cause anyone to be fired. Photo: Chuck Kennedy
