Trump lashes out at top Democrat over Russian Federation probe memo

Devin Nunes the Republican chair of the House Intelligence Committee

"I think it would be a mistake for anyone to suggest that the special counsel shouldn't complete his work".

Yet Mr. Trump says he is totally vindicated by a four-page memo by the House Intelligence Committee detailing the FBI's decision to rely in part on an anti-Trump dossier to apply for surveillance warrants against Mr. Page in October 2016.

While Democrats publicly called on the President to make this new memo public, they weren't sure that would actually happen. So it's going to be sent to the president, who will have five days to decide whether to make it public or not.

Trump says the GOP memo alleging bias inside the FBI clears him in the Russian Federation investigation, tweeting this weekend: "This memo totally vindicates "Trump" in probe".

"There are things in the memo that I would be uncomfortable with if the White House did not redact", he said.

In his interview Monday afternoon, Schiff noted it might be an upgrade from the time previous year that Trump called him "Sleazy Adam Schiff".

"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 (former FBI Director James) Comey, (Senate Intelligence Committee Vice Chairman Senator Mark) Warner, (former CIA Director John) Brennan and (former National Intelligence Director James) Clapper!"


Schiff tweeted in kind Monday, advising Trump to turn "off the TV" help "solve the funding crisis".

Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., wrote a letter to Trump on Sunday telling the president that if he does not release the Democrats' memo, it "will confirm the American people's worst fears that the release of Chairman Nunes' memo was only meant to undermine Special Counsel Bob Mueller's investigation". But that meeting was put off, according to two people familiar with the committee's schedule. The panel did, however, agree last week to let the full House review the Schiff memo in a classified setting.

At issue is whether the White House will allow him to answer questions about his time in the Trump administration.

White House spokesman Raj Shah said Monday that if the committee sends the Democratic memo to the White House, officials "will consider it along the same lines" as they did the Nunes memo.

The Democrat said: "The goal here is to undermine the FBI, discredit the FBI, discredit the Mueller investigation, do the president's bidding". He added that he's careful not disclose anything from a private session before offering up a suggestion for the White House chief of staff.

Trump praised Nunes in a separate tweet Monday, calling him "a man of tremendous courage and grit, may someday be recognized as a Great American Hero for what he has exposed and what he has had to endure!"

Mr. Trump now has five days to decide whether or not to release the Democratic memo; last week, he gave the go ahead for the GOP memo, which charged that the Federal Bureau of Investigation had not informed a secret intelligence court that it was using material from the controversial "Steele Dossier". Trump has repeatedly tried to draw attention away from special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian efforts to influence the 2016 election and whether the Trump campaign coordinated with the Kremlin. The memo alleges the government obtained its warrant to spy on Carter Page based on a disputed dossier compiled by an ex-spy retained by an opposition research firm and financed by Democrats. But it's unclear how much or what information Steele collected made it into the application, or how much has been corroborated.
