Late-night host Stephen Colbert traveled to Capitol Hill for a Friday “The Late Show” segment to look into the House Intelligence Committee’s ongoing Russia investigation and deliver his own “memo” to the committee’s ranking member.

“I want to show you a couple of photographs here. You don’t have to say a word — the eyes are the window to the soul,” Colbert said. "Are these people guilty?"


Schiff laughed as Colbert showed him a photo of Kushner, to which Colbert responded, “It’s so funny how much time he’ll spend in jail.”

“I really can’t comment on this,” Schiff said.

“Oh, it’s bad,” Colbert responded. “Really bad.”

The comedian then presented Schiff with his own “memo” similar to the two documents recently released by Democrats and Republicans on the committee. Colbert asked the California Democrat to read the memo out loud.

“It says, ‘Devin NunesDevin Gerald NunesDemocrats' opposition research got exposed — this time, not by the Russians GOP consultant sued by Nunes asks for help paying legal costs Hillicon Valley: Hacker group targeted electric grid | House Democrats press CBP over facial recognition program | Senators offer bill to protect health data | Groups file FCC complaint over carriers' use of location data MORE is a,’ and then it’s redacted,” Schiff said.

Nunes (Calif.) is the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee.

“We’re not allowed to release that information,” Colbert said. “CBS won’t let me say it on air either.”

Later in the segment, Colbert visited the office of Sen. Jeff FlakeJeffrey (Jeff) Lane FlakeFlake urges Republicans to condemn 'vile and offensive' Trump tweets Flake responds to Trump, Jimmy Carter barbs: 'We need to stop trying to disqualify each other' Jeff Flake responds to Trump's 'greener pastures' dig on former GOP lawmakers MORE (R-Ariz.), saying he was the “only Republican” who would read his memo on television.

“Do you have any guesses as to what it might say underneath?” Colbert said, referring to the redaction about Nunes.

“Californian? Public servant? Former dairy farmer?” Flake guessed.

“Former dairy farmer? Really? Because he seems to be milking it right now,” Colbert replied.

Colbert’s segment comes weeks after the two dueling memos were released. The memo authored by Nunes alleged abuse of surveillance powers at the Justice Department, while the Democratic memo rebutted those claims.
