President Trump accused Rep. Adam Schiff without evidence of illegally leaking “confidential information.”
President Trump flashed anger at one of his leading antagonists in the Russia probe, mocking Rep. Adam Schiff’s personal appearance and accusing him without evidence of illegally leaking “confidential information.”
The attack comes as Schiff (D-Burbank), the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, continues his efforts to rebut Republican criticism of the investigation into Trump’s associates and their possible ties to Russian meddling in the 2016 election. On Monday, Schiff plans to try to win public release of a Democratic answer to a Republican memo released Friday that attempted to undermine one aspect of the investigation.
In a morning tweet, Trump labeled Schiff “little,” an insult he has used on others, and called him “one of the biggest liars and leakers in Washington, right up there with Comey, Warner, Brennan and Clapper!”
