The top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee on Sunday dismissed as “nonsense” President Donald Trump’s claim that an FBI spy was embedded in the Trump campaign.

In remarks on NBC News’ “Meet The Press,” Rep. Adam Schiff, D-California, called it a dangerous move to uncover informants.

The mention of McCarthy referred to his article in the National Review.

“The most I can tell you… is that this claim by the president, the suggestion by [Trump’s lawyer Rudy] Giuliani that there is a political spy embedded in the Trump campaign is nonsense,” Schiff said.

“And you hear it in the same terms that Trump often speaks, which is ‘people are saying,’ or ‘I’m hearing,’ or ‘we’re being told,’” he added.

“That’s another way of saying ‘this is patently untrue, but we would like to spread it anyway’ and it’s singularly destructive of our institutions but then that’s the point.”
