Adam Schiff Releases Statement After Seeing ‘The Same Materials That Were Provided’ to Devin Nunes
Congressman Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, released a statement earlier tonight after going to the White House to review intel documents––documents he said were represented to him as the same ones provided to Intel Chair Devin Nunes last week.

After reviewing the documents at the White House, Schiff put out the following statement:
