Rep. Schiff joined the co-hosts from Washington, D.C. and said he was “mystified” by the actions of the committee’s chair Rep. Devin Nunes: “He has to either have the surrogate role or the chairman role, but he can’t do both.”
“There’s no basis for the president’s slanderous accusation against his predecessor,” Schiff said of Nunes' highly-criticized intelligence brief to Pres. Trump. “Even on the basis of what the chairman has said about these intercepts, nothing in it vindicates the president in any way.”
