President Trump defended his decision to keep members of Congress in the dark on the successful raid that ultimately killed ISIS mastermind Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi Monday; calling Rep. Adam Schiff a “known leaker.”
“The only thing is they were talking about why didn’t I give the information to Adam Schiff and his committee, and the answer is because I think Adam Schiff is the biggest leaker in Washington,” Trump said. “You know that, I know that, we all know that. I’ve watched Adam Schiff leak. He’s a corrupt politician. He’s a leaker like nobody has ever seen before.”
“I wanted to make sure this kept secret,” Trump said. “I don’t want to have people lost.”
