President Donald Trump on Monday disparaged Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee that is investigating alleged Russia meddling in the 2016 presidential election, as "Little Adam Schiff" and accused him of leaking "confidential information."
Schiff has slammed the release of a congressional memo that alleges FBI surveillance abuses in an investigation into the Trump campaign's Russia ties. The California Democrat said Sunday that it was a "political hit job."
Trump has said the GOP memo "vindicates" him. But Democratic and Republican lawmakers say that assertion is wrong.
Schiff did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Associated Press.
