Adam Schiff Rips Pence: He’s ‘Brought His Sycophancy to a Whole New Level’ With Call to End Mueller Probe

Vice President Mike Pence‘s call for special counsel Robert Mueller to “wrap up” his investigation has already generated some intense criticism on cable news. Now, one of the nation’s most influential Congressmen is weighing in — and his take is equally scalding.

In a Thursday morning Tweet, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) slammed the vice president for his comments on the Mueller probe.

“VP Pence has now brought his sycophancy to a whole new level,” Schiff wrote. “With questions concerning which senior transition officials were aware of Flynn’s secret talks w/ Russian Ambassador still unanswered and new revelations every day, investigation must continue without his interference.”

Schiff, of course, has been a key player in the Russia investigation as the ranking minority member on the House Intelligence Committee. That body recently concluded its work, and did so prematurely in the opinion of Schiff — who called the shutdown of the House probe a “tragic milestone.”
