Rep. Adam Schiff (D., Calif.), who is poised to become chairman of the House Intelligence Committee in the new Congress, suggested Tuesday the president should go to jail for campaign fraud.

In an appearance on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” Schiff said Michael Cohen’s sentence should apply equally to his former client President Donald Trump, should the evidence show him guilty of the same crime. Cohen, the president’s former personal attorney, alleges then-candidate Trump directed him to arrange payments to women who alleged having an affair with him, and in the process, knowingly violated campaign finance laws.

“If the Justice Department takes the position that Michael Cohen should go to jail, that these allegations are so serious he should go to jail for these campaign fraud allegations, what is the argument against jail for the individual who coordinated and directed that scheme?” Schiff asked to applause. Schiff cautioned that the prosecution might not have the evidence, but that the president ought enjoy no special protection. “The rich and powerful shouldn’t play by some other set of rules. That argument applies with equal force to the president of the United States,” he said.

Cohen received a three-year prison sentence last week after pleading guilty to lying to Congress. He admitted to undisclosed communications with the Russian government to advance a multi-million dollar real estate project in Moscow.
