"I do not regret calling out this President for what I consider deeply unethical and improper conduct," Schiff said on CNN's "State of the Union" with Jake Tapper.
He continued, "Not a bit. And I think the moment we start to think that we should back away from exposing this child of corruption and corruption is a dangerous point."
"The Republicans seem to think that as long as you can prove it's a crime, then all is fair in love and war, that it's all okay, what the Trump administration, the Trump campaign does," Schiff said. "I don't feel that way. I don't think most Americans feel that way." Schiff said he deferred to Mueller on the question of criminal conspiracy with Russia, but that his standard for his investigation was not the same.
"I think what we're talking about here is the difference between conduct that rises to the level of crime and conduct that is deeply unethical, unpatriotic and corrupt that may not be criminal," Schiff said.
Schiff allowed on Sunday that there could be certain classified information in the report "that may need to be close-hold, depending on whether that reveals sources and methods, but that there may be other portions that, if classified, could be "declassified in the public interest."
