NY Post- President Trump  continued his ongoing criticism of the controversial memo that aimed to shoot holes in special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe, mocking the top Democrat on a House committee as “Little Adam Schiff” and calling him one of Washington’s “biggest liars and leakers.”

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

He was mentioning former top intelligence community officials James Comey of the FBI, John Brennan of the CIA and James Clapper of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, as well as Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.).

Rep. Adam Schiff responded to Trump’s tweet later Monday morning:

 The Democrats on the panel, who contend the Republicans cherry-picked details to make their point – wrote a 10-page memo rebutting the GOP memo’s allegations.

But the Republican-controlled panel voted not to release it to the public.
