Adam Schiff on Memo: GOP Did a ‘Political Hit Job on the FBI’ to Serve Trump

Congressman Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intel Committee, blasted the Republicans on the committee over their motivations in getting out the Nunes memo.

Schiff insisted that the FISA court was notified about the political nature of information being presented, despite what the memo claims.

He also disputed the idea that Republicans are merely just conducting oversight, saying if that was really the motivation, they would have wanted to see all the underlying documents, but they didn’t.

“The interest wasn’t oversight,” Schiff claimed. “The interest was a political hit job on the FBI in the service of the President.”
