Trump furious over Adam Schiff hires
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff has hired officials with experience at the National Security Council to help with his panel’s oversight of President Donald Trump’s administration, according to a committee aide.
The aide declined to say how recently the newly hired officials worked at the council, whether they served under Trump or to identify the individuals. But the move appears to have enraged the President and some members of his senior staff, who view the move as an intrusion. It comes as Democrats prepare to wield new investigative power after winning a House majority in 2018.
Trump fumed on Twitter Thursday about the recently launched investigations led by the Democratic intelligence chair and suggested he was raiding the White House staff.
