A Republican Representative unloaded on his Democratic colleagues Wednesday, accusing the liberal lawmakers of leaking sensitive testimony before the House Intelligence Committee to the press simply to create headaches for the Trump administration.
Rep. Tom Rooney of Florida was speaking with CNN when he slammed left-wing lawmakers for their non-stop leaks regarding Russian testimony, saying the Democrats were harassing people for “nine hours” so they can release “ridiculous” soundbites to the mainstream media.
“We’ve interviewed scores of witnesses and now we’ve gotten to the point now where we’re literally bringing people in for nine hours just so the Democrats can leak to the press something as ridiculous as ‘white lies,’” said Rooney, referencing outgoing Communications Director Hope Hicks statement before Congressional leaders.
“It was a trap… It was a trap and that is what our investigation has become,” he added.

“We can see for example on Facebook, so graphically what I was mentioning earlier; the multiple aims of the Russians in their interference in our elections. On Facebook you had the content that was clearly anti-Hillary and you had the content that was very pro-Trump,” said Schiff.
“Of course, they parroted Black Lives Matter to try to broaden the racial divide in this country. Fascinatingly they also trumpeted the Second Amendment. The Russians are very big fans of our Second Amendment,” he added.
“The Russians would be very thrilled if we would be doing nothing but killing each other every day, and sadly we are,” said the liberal lawmaker.
ADAM’S ADMISSION: Schiff Says OBAMA ADMIN to Blame for Russian Meddling
Liberal congressman Adam Schiff publicly admitted over the weekend that former President Barack Obama dropped the ball on Russian election interference; saying his administration was partially to blame for foreign meddling throughout the 2016 race for the White House.
Speaking at the Council on Foreign Relations Friday, the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee spoke out about the Obama administration’s “minimal response” as accusations of Russian interference made national headlines.
“Russians are equal-opportunity malevolent actors,” said Schiff. “They’re not Republican and they’re not Democrats. They’re just designed in their foreign policy and their cyber policy to undermine the United States.”
“I do think though, that in fairness, some responsibility is attributed to the Obama administration for not establishing a more forceful deterrent. I think it goes back to the [North] Korean hack of Sony, which there was a minimal response. I think others around the world watched that,” he added.
