  • House Benghazi Committee Chairman Rep. Trey Gowdy R-S.C. listens as Hillary Clinton testifies on Oct. 22 2015

Just three days after calling for cross-party unity in Washington, President Donald Trump on Friday again lashed out at House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff, suggesting his sweeping probe of all things Trump is merely a partisan hit job.

President Trump has derided Rep. Adam B. Schiff (D-Calif.) as "a political hack" after learning that he was expanding an investigation to include scrutiny of "credible reports of money laundering and financial compromise" involving Trump's businesses.

At issue is a dossier of information about Trump and his alleged ties to Russians that was compiled for research firm Fusion GPS by former British spy Christopher Steele. "And they literally kept it going until Hillary Clinton's campaign... for four years".

In other tweets Friday, Trump complained that the media had not devoted more attention to comments made in a CBS interview this week by Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr (R-N.C.).

The moves come as Schiff and other Democrats prepare to launch new probes into Trump, leading to concerns inside the White House that some career staffers opposed to Trump's policies may use the opportunity to damage him.

President Trump took to Twitter on Friday to try to undercut House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam B. Schiff (D-Calif.) and complain about media coverage of ongoing investigations into possible coordination between his 2016 campaign and Russian Federation.

"Let's just stop right there", he said as the entire panel started laughing.

Grace worked for a bipartisan think tank, Center for a New American Security, after working for both former President Barack Obama and Trump on the National Security Council from 2016 to 2018. "When Republicans have oversight of a branch of Congress or a house of Congress and they're investigating a Democratic president, they're going to make life hard for them".
