Donald Trump knocks Adam Schiff for starting new investigations: ‘Unlimited Presidential Harassment’

February 7, 2019

President Trump slammed Rep. Adam Schiff Thursday morning, accusing him of leading “Unlimited Presidential Harassment” by launching new probes.

“So now Congressman Adam Schiff announces, after having found zero Russian Collusion, that he is going to be looking at every aspect of my life, both financial and personal, even though there is no reason to be doing so,” Mr. Trump tweeted.

On Wednesday, the House intelligence committee, which Mr. Schiff chairs, announced a new investigation to look into whether or not the president, his children or any of his businesses were compromised by foreign agents.

The California Democrat said the committee will restart and expand the Russian election-meddling investigation that Republicans led last Congress.

Mr. Trump slammed the Democrats as “nuts” and accused them of unfair treatment.

“The Republicans never did this to President Obama, there would be no time left to run government,” he wrote. “I hear other committee heads will do the same thing. Even stealing people who work at White House! A continuation of Witch Hunt!”

The investigations were announced the day after the president warned Congress that any hope of bipartisanship depended on whether or not they pursued their investigations.
