Adam Schiff warned Trump calling something 'fake' should 'set off alarm bells'


UPDATE  April 2, 9:16 a.m. EST:

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, warned Americans that when President Trump calls something "fake," it should "set off alarm bells."

Schiff did not comment on the content of the documents reviewed by committee chairman Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) during an interview on CNN's "State of the Union" Sunday morning.

Here's part of that interview.

He referenced former national security adviser Michael Flynn's request for immunity.

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee was given the chance to view documents given to the committee's chairman, Devin Nunes (R-CA), and released a statement saying they should be reviewed, reports The Hill

"While I cannot discuss the content of the documents, if the White House had any concern over these materials, they should have been shared with the full committees in the first place as a part of our ordinary oversight responsibilities," Schiff said in a statement.

Here's Schiff's statement on social media. 

Leaders of the House and Senate intelligence committees were given the chance to view the documents after Nunes was given the chance to look them over earlier in the week. 

Nunes came under fire for obtaining the documents and then briefing the president before ever showing them to other Congressmen. 

"The White House has yet to explain why senior White House staff apparently shared these materials with but one member of either committee, only for their contents to be briefed back to the White House," Schiff said.

Schiff posted this letter in response to his invitation to view the documents on Thursday.
