Ranking Member of the House Intelligence Committee, California Rep. Adam Schiff, is no longer mincing words when it comes to his feelings about Donald Trump and the President's refusal to release a Democratic rebuttal to the Republican memo that Trump claims exonerates him from investigation into Russian collusion in the 2016 election.
It started when Trump went to Twitter, once again, to rally support for his cause:
The Democrats sent a very political and long response memo which they knew, because of sources and methods (and more), would have to be heavily redacted, whereupon they would blame the White House for lack of transparency. Told them to re-do and send back in proper form!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 10, 2018
Schiff quickly fired back in response, effectively shutting down Trumps claims:
Mr. President, what you call “political” are actually called facts, and your concern for sources and methods would be more convincing if you hadn’t decided to release the GOP memo (“100%”) before reading it and over the objections of the FBI. https://t.co/L48kAQOztL— Adam Schiff (@RepAdamSchiff) February 10, 2018
Schiff didn't stop there. He also appeared on Face The Nation and once again called Trump out for his hypocrisy:
This isn't the first time Trump and Schiff have clashed. Trump tried to throw shade last week, but it didn't go well:
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!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 5, 2018
Schiff wasn't having it and clapped back with this:
Mr. President, I see you’ve had a busy morning of “Executive Time.” Instead of tweeting false smears, the American people would appreciate it if you turned off the TV and helped solve the funding crisis, protected Dreamers or...really anything else. https://t.co/lVqQRu2Gjl— Adam Schiff (@RepAdamSchiff) February 5, 2018
Have you seen the new GOP hashtag? It's quite a doozy:— Adam Schiff (@RepAdamSchiff) February 7, 2018
We don't see this war of words ending anytime soon.
