Rep. Schiff On ‘Shameful’ Trump Attack On Russia Probe: ‘Putin Will Take This As A Green Light To Interfere In 2018’





Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the House Intelligence Committee ranking member, blasted President Trump for attacking special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe during a press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday, calling it “cowardly and shameful” and saying that “Putin will take this as a green light to interfere in 2018.”

“President Trump just attacked our intelligence agencies and law enforcement for doing their jobs while standing next to a dictator who intervened in our election to help elect Trump,” Schiff tweeted.

“Putin will take this as a green light to interfere in 2018, and it is. Cowardly and shameful.”




The Hill added:

Schiff’s statement came shortly after Trump and Putin appeared for a joint press conference after their meeting concluded in Finland.

“The probe is a disaster for our country. I think it’s kept us separated. There was no collusion at all. Everybody knows it,” Trump said just days after special counsel Robert Mueller indicted 12 Russian intelligence officers for hacking DNC servers during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Trump also refused to denounce Russia for meddling in the 2016 election, pointing to Putin’s denials to defend his argument.
