(Newser) – With prosecutors saying President Trump arranged illegal payments during the 2016 campaign, Rep. Adam Schiff adds a thought: "There's a very real prospect that on the day Donald Trump leaves office, the Justice Department may indict him," he says on CBS' Face the Nation, per Slate. "That he may be the first president in quite some time to face the real prospect of jail time." The Democratic congressman—who's likely the next House Intelligence Committee chairman—says the next president could face a big decision: "The bigger pardon question may come down the road, as the next president has to determine whether to pardon Donald Trump." For more Sunday chatter:

  • Meng Wanzhou: "He did not know," White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow says on Fox News Sunday about Trump's knowledge of the Huawei CFO's arrest, per the Hill. "Regarding the Huawei prosecution, let me just say that's a law enforcement action, primarily Department of Justice."
