What does "something he also said should be true of any former Trump staffers who did so." (3rd paragraph) mean?

Context>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Schiff also said special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on potential Russian government influence in the 2016 election might not be the final word on the matter.

“We may also need to see the evidence behind that report,” he said.

And Schiff said that former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe should be held accountable if he indeed lied to investigators — something he also said should be true of any former Trump staffers who did so.

Last year, the Justice Department’s internal watchdog found that McCabe inappropriately authorized the disclosure of sensitive information about the Clinton investigation to a reporter and repeatedly lied about it to investigators. The Justice Department on Thursday referenced McCabe’s dismissal from the bureau for his dishonesty with federal authorities in its statement disputing his claims.

“He should be held to the same standard anyone else that the Justice Department has looked at in this investigation or any other,” Schiff said.
