President Donald Trump delivered some choice words about House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, saying the California Democrat is a “bad guy” who has been knowingly lying about him for nearly two years.
“Schiff is a bad guy. He knew he was lying. He’s not a dummy. He knew he was lying,” Trump told Fox News host Sean Hannity Wednesday night. “For a year and a half, he would go on and just lie and lie and leak and call up CNN and others . . . and [he] gets on and says, ‘oh, we want to talk about Russia.’
“He knew it was a lie, and he would get into the backroom with his friends and the Democrat Party, and they would laugh like hell at what they were doing. It’s a disgrace.”
Schiff has insisted evidence showing Trump conspired with the Russians to win the 2016 election exists. After Attorney General William Barr announced Sunday that Trump was cleared of the collusion accusation, Schiff did not back down from his claim.
Some Republicans are now calling for Schiff to be removed from his post as committee chairman.
