President Trump began the day going after the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee Adam Schiff, accusing him of being one of Washington D.C.’s biggest leakers.  He’s “right up there with [former FBI Director James] Comey, [Senate Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Mark] Warner, [former CIA Director John] Brennan and [former Director of National Intelligence James] Clapper!…He must be stopped!” the president wrote.

Little Adam Schiff, who is desperate to run for higher office, is one of the biggest liars and leakers in Washington, right up there with Comey, Warner, Brennan and Clapper! Adam leaves closed committee hearings to illegally leak confidential information. Must be stopped!

Schiff has been one of the most vocal critics of this president, as well as chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Devin Nunes.  He’s also been one of the most dogged investigators in the Russia meddling scandal that has engulfed the president’s administration.

Yesterday, Schiff called the controversial Nunes Memo released Friday a “political hit job on the FBI.”

“The goal here really isn’t to find out the answers from the FBI. The goal here is to undermine the FBI, discredit the FBI, discredit the investigation, do the president’s bidding,” he added.

The House Intelligence Committee is set to vote tonight to release a memo that Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee wrote to refute the Republican one.  If it passes, it will go to the president’s desk.  He will then have five days either to approve its release or reject it.
