Congressional Democrats are still upset over the recent Republican FISA intelligence memo release, as the call for President Trump to allow for the release of their version of the GOP memo appears to have fallen on deaf ears.
The House Intelligence Committee’s top Democrat, Rep, Adam Schiff, looks to call a vote in the House for the release of his party’s counter memo to the recently released Republican intelligence memo. Leading up to this possible vote, President Trump swatted at Schiff, calling him “one of the biggest liars and leakers in Washington.”
Democrats are looking to counter the memo that paints the FBI and the Justice Department as rogue entities that misused their power when they conducted surveillance operations on a former Trump for President advisor.
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!

Florida Congressman Alcee Hastings (D) has taken issue with the “name calling” by the president, and suggested that he focus his efforts on getting “bipartisan immigration reform” done.
Less than a week after the SOTU @RealDonaldTrump is back to name-calling on Twitter. If the President put this much effort into responsible budgeting or bipartisan immigration reform, we might actually get something done around here. https://t.co/2KhNeD9xjr
