Trump seeks to undercut Schiff, complains about media coverage of Russian Federation probes

The staff member, Abigail Grace, is listed in a House directory as working for Schiff on the intelligence panel.

The aide declined to say how recently the newly hired officials worked at the council, whether they served under Trump or to identify the individuals. Grace didn't respond to an email requesting comment and her duties under Schiff aren't known.

An administration official told reporters to "ask Adam Schiff what that means" when asked about the President's claim Democrats are "stealing people who work at White House".

A person familiar with the matter said former National Security Council staffers would not be out of the ordinary on the intelligence committee. The official said none were hired directly from the White House and that it was appropriate to seek people with prior National Security Council experience for agency oversight.

Wallace emphasized that "Democrats are in control of the House and have control of these committees" and "that's just the way it works". There is no intent to try to obtain backdoor information about Trump from new hires, the official said.

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.

Trump had touted Senate Intelligence Committee Chair Sen.

"But as I say, it is in the nature of the beast that when one party control the House, they're going to try to make life hard and make people sweat within the administration", Wallace concluded.

That's largely because Senate Republicans have given no indication they would vote to remove him from office - and that vote would only come if House Democrats impeached him, which that party's leaders remain reluctant to attempt.

Schiff on Wednesday said his panel is probing whether foreign governments or individuals had improper leverage over the president or his business interests.

The Late Show host noted Trump's use of the catchphrase "presidential harassment" to describe investigations into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

"In the interests of the investigation, Michael Cohen's testimony has been postponed until February 28th", House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff said in a statement.
