President Donald Trump slammed Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence committee, and accused him of breaking the law Monday morning — while giving him a new nickname.

“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!” Trump wrote on Twitter. “Adam leaves closed committee hearings to illegally leak confidential information. Must be stopped!”

Schiff, D-Calif., fired back within minutes, tweeting: “Mr. President, I see you’ve had a busy morning of ‘Executive Time.’ Instead of tweeting false smears, the American people would appreciate it if you turned off the TV and helped solve the funding crisis, protected Dreamers or…really anything else.”

Fox News reports:

Schiff sits as the ranking member on the intelligence committe. He is expected Monday to officially request the committee release Democratic members’ own 10-page memo, with the promise to send it to the Justice Department for redactions.

Trump’s tweet came shortly before Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., said on “Fox & Friends” that almost “100 leaks” have seemingly come from Democrats.

Trump’s tweet also reflected frustration with a host of figures, including Schiff’s Senate counterpart – Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., who sits as ranking member on the Senate Intelligence Committee, which conducted its own Russia probe. He also named former FBI director James Comey, former CIA director John Brennan, and former director of national intelligence James Clapper.
