On a Monday morning spent watching Fox & Friends, Trump went after the Democrat and ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, deriding him as “Little Adam Schiff.”
If the memo was really about oversight, committee members would want to read the underlying documents and bring in the FBI. Republicans voted against both.
The interest was not oversight, it was a political hit job on the FBI in the service of the President: pic.twitter.com/LJD3qLGPw6

Schiff has been on cable news lately, appearing to voice his opposition to the Nunes memo, compiled by Republicans and released by the House last week with the approval of Trump.
Republicans claim the memo outlines surveillance abuses of the FBI and DOJ when targeting members of the Trump campaign; Democrats, led chiefly by Schiff, rebut that the document as a partisan rag being used to sow distrust in the U.S. intelligence community and ultimately undermine the special investigation into the Trump campaign’s Russia ties.
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!
