Rep. Adam Schiff Fires Back At Trump After Russia Tweetstorm: ‘You Won’t Recognize The Truth’

Rep. Adam Schiff of California slammed President Donald Trump for not calling-out the Kremlin’s election tampering in 2016, which was further exposed after Robert Mueller charged 13 Russian-tied individuals and three organizations amid his probe.

Schiff, who made the comments on Twitter in response to a Trump tweet, accused the president of refusing to “recognize the truth” regarding Russia.

“Sorry for delay @POTUS. Was on a plane back from Munich where General McMaster confronted Russia over its meddling,” tweeted Schiff. “I’ve always said Obama should’ve acted sooner. But you won’t recognize the truth, impose sanctions or act at all. If McMaster can stand up to Putin, why can’t you?”

The post Schiff responded to involved Trump referring to him as “Liddle’ Adam Schiff, the leakin’ monster” and ended in the president sarcastically thanking him.

“Finally, Liddle’ Adam Schiff, the leakin’ monster of no control, is now blaming the Obama Administration for Russian meddling in the 2016 Election. He is finally right about something. Obama was President, knew of the threat, and did nothing. Thank you Adam!” Tweeted Trump.
