Trump Calls Adam Schiff 'Little' As Push For Dem Memo Release Grows
Former FBI Director James Comey

Rep. Adam Schiff of California, the committee's senior Democrat, said Monday that he believes the White House will feel pressure to release the Democrats' memo after touting the need for "transparency" in making the Nunes memo public.
And while Nunes has not called into question Mueller's authority in the wake of the release of the memo, he has raised questions about the top tier leadership at the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Justice Department, refusing even to say in an interview last week whether Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein should remain in his position. Democrats were highly critical of the prospect of releasing the Nunes memo, claiming that it would endanger national security. Even as Democrats described it as inaccurate, some Republicans quickly cited the memo - released over the objections of the FBI and Justice Department - in their arguments that Mueller's investigation is politically tainted.
The classified memo is expected to be taken by courier to the White House Monday evening, the official said, setting into motion the five-day review period.
President Donald Trump accused the House Intelligence Committee's top Democrat Monday of criminally leaking sensitive information. The memo was made public after Trump declassified the document and despite the FBI's expressing "grave concerns" about its release. But rather than vindicate Trump of any wrongdoing, the memo actually dispels a major talking point of Republicans - that the investigation itself began because of a controversial dossier.
Democrats feared Trump would use the memo as a pretext for firing senior officials and subvert the investigation, led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, into Russia's meddling in the 2016 USA election and possible coordination between Trump's camp and Moscow.
Rep. Mike Quigley, an Illinois Democrat, pressed Nunes during the meeting on whether he had coordinated with the White House in any aspect of the memo, just as he had one week prior when Nunes did not respond to his questions about staff involvement with the White House on the memo. The official did not say whether the decision would be made before Friday, but suggested it could be.
Nunes was asked during a January 29 committee meeting whether he had coordinated the memo with the White House.
The president also called the Congressman a leaker of documents, accusing him of leaving committee hearings in order to disperse confidential information. "Must be stopped!" Trump wrote.
Schiff responded by warning Trump against "tweeting false smears". "Obviously, the chairman of the intelligence committee will have discussions with folks in the White House on all sorts of matters, but nothing with respect to coordination of the memo that I'm aware of", White House deputy press secretary Raj Shah said Monday.
Trump also praised Nunes in a separate tweet Monday, calling him "a man of tremendous courage and grit, may someday be recognized as a Great American Hero for what he has exposed and what he has had to endure!"
"If he refuses, the American people will be forced to wonder: what is the president trying to hide?"
