President Trump just unloaded on the ever-hapless Adam Schiff after Adam opened an investigation into POTUS.
Trump called Schiff a political hack after Schiff ignored calls for unity and made his move on POTUS.
“He has no basis to do that. He’s just a political hack who’s trying to build a name for himself,” Trump told reporters this morning at the White House.
“It’s just presidential harassment and it’s unfortunate and it really does hurt our country.”
Trump told reporters he appreciated and was honored by the positive feedback he received for his call to unity last night.
“It was very important, I think, for me to get up and say some powerful words and some loving words and some words of compromise. The speech, I think, has been well received.”
Except for the Democrats who ignored it and plowed ahead to mount what will be exhausting investigations into Trump.
No one doubts Congress has oversight but we are in the middle of Mueller’s probe, or near the end and Schiff just delayed Michael Cohen’s testimony again on account of Mueller’s investigation.
In other words, Trump is being investigated and by someone with far more power than Adam Schiff and a bunch of House Democrats.
Overkill is the word and Trump is right to reveal Schiff’s political motivations – he did just visit New Hampshire after all.
“The president’s actions and posture towards Russia during the campaign, transition, and administration have only heightened fears of foreign financial or other leverage over President Trump and underscore the need to determine whether he or those in his administration have acted in service of foreign interests since taking office,” Schiff said when he opened his investigation.
From The Hill:
The House Intelligence Committee on Wednesday voted give special counsel Robert Mueller transcripts from dozens of witness interviews from the panel’s Russia probe.
The move will provide Mueller with roughly 50 transcripts of committee interviews as he continues to investigate Russian interference and potential coordination between President Trump’s campaign and Moscow.
“That includes transcripts that the special counsel and Justice Department have not had access to and a great many that they have, but have not been allowed to use for particular purposes including in prosecutions for false statements, obstruction, or perjury or any other like offense,” Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) told reporters on Wednesday.
“The special counsel’s office will now have access to those transcripts for any purpose which will facilitate justice,” he added.
