WATCH: Adam Schiff Believes Trump Faces 'The Real Prospect of Jail Time'

Soon-to-be House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) appeared on CBS News' "Face the Nation" on Sunday morning. During his conversation with host Margaret Brennan, Schiff said he believes President Donald Trump faces the "very real prospect" of seeing jail time after he leaves office. Schiff believes this because of allegations made against Trump's former attorney Michael Cohen, who allegedly paid off two of the president's alleged former mistresses. 

Schiff took his predictions a step further and said not only does he believe Trump would be indicted but he also said the next sitting president would have to decide whether or not to pardon Trump. 

"We have been discussing the issue of pardons the president may offer to people or dangle in front of people," Schiff said. "The bigger pardon question may come down the road, as the next president has to determine whether to pardon Donald Trump."

Schiff followed up after the interview, explaining his position and reasoning:
