In response to President Trump’s tweet on Sunday regarding his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) criticized him for “undermining” the position of U.S. intelligence agencies.
According to Trump, “I strongly pressed President Putin twice about Russian meddling in our election. He vehemently denied it. I’ve already given my opinion…..”

According to Schiff, however, this was a very bad move.
“No art to this deal: What kind of ‘tough negotiator’ goes into talks undermining his country’s own position, as you did attacking US intel?” the House Intelligence Committee member tweeted back to Trump.

Trump has said that he does believe Russia interfered in the election, but he also thinks other countries participated in the same kind of election “meddling” as well, adding “nobody really knows for sure,” but liberal news outlets have been taking those words out of context.
Still, Schiff blasted Trump last Thursday for saying he wasn’t sure if Russia interfered in the election, saying the comments “continue to directly undermine U.S. interests.” But that’s not exactly what Trump said.
