Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) late Monday said that the allegation former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort attempted to tamper with potential witnesses in his trial is an indication he’s “facing some serious time.”

“You can imagine in a case of this significance watched this closely the special counsel’s team is not going to do this unless they have pretty darn ironclad evidence that Manafort is trying to corrupt or co-opt these witnesses,” Schiff said on CNN’s “Cuomo Primetime.”

“So, it’s a big development and I think a sign that Manafort is willing to try anything, do anything, and he’s facing some serious time,” he added.
