President Trump is calling the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee Rep. Adam Schiff (D-California) a “liar and a “leaker.”

In a Tweet today Trump alleged that “Little Adam Schiff is desperate to run for higher office, is one of the biggest liars and leakers in Washington.” Then Trump listed Congressman Schiff along with other Obama-era intelligence officials, including former FBI Director James Comey.

Trump accused Schiff of leaving “closed committee hearings to illegally leak confidential information,” adding, “Must be stopped!”

Schiff says Committee Chairman Devin Nunes’ staff worked with the White House on the Republican-drafted intelligence memo.

The committee is expected to vote today on whether to publicly declassify a memo prepared by Democrats, claiming the Republican version was misleading.

Schiff fired back that the President should spend less time watching TV and “tweeting false smears” and more time on solving the funding crisis and protecting Dreamers. The government runs out of money again later this week.

Dreamers are the young immigrants who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children.

Late last year, Trump announced plans to cancel the Obama-era program that protected Dreamers and gave Congress until March 5th to craft a better federal policy.

Trump also Tweeted this morning that any deal on DACA must include strong border security and funding for a massive border wall.
