Trump Fumes Over Who Schiff Hired For Oversight Panel

According to CNN, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff has hired officials with experience at the National Security Council to help with oversight of President Donald Trump's administration.

The move seems to have angered Trump and members of his senior staff.

On Thursday, the president wrote on Twitter, "The Dems and their committees are going “nuts.” The Republicans never did this to President Obama, there would be no time left to run government.

I hear other committee heads will do the same thing.

Even stealing people who work at White House!

A continuation of Witch Hunt!" A House Intelligence Committee aide told CNN the panel would not discriminate about hiring individuals from the current administration but that no recent hire came directly from the White House.

Schiff added in response to the tweet, "If the President is worried about our hiring any former administration people, maybe he should work on being a better employer."
