Rep. Adam Schiff believes most each member of Congress questions President Trump’s psychological health, however solely a handful are keen to confess it publicly.
Schiff mentioned Sunday morning he was not shocked by the bombshell contents of Michael Wollf’s “Hearth and Fury: Contained in the Trump White Home,” going as far to depict Trump as a “critically flawed human being” to CNN’s Jake Tapper.
The California Democrat advised he’s not alone in considering Trump is incapable of holding workplace.
“I don’t suppose there’s anybody in Congress, frankly from both social gathering, who doesn’t concur privately with these observations and issues,” Schiff mentioned throughout the interview.
“Only a few are keen to specific it publicly in Congress and I believe that’s to the detriment to our establishment,” he added.
He pointed to Trump’s politically-motivated obsession with having the Justice Division probe his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, as an indicator of his far-reaching follies.
“If they’re investigating Hillary Clinton, it would not take a genius, not to mention a secure genius to see why,” Schiff mentioned, referencing Trump’s ill-attempt to defend his intelligence on Twitter.
“It is not as a result of there’s some new proof that is come to gentle. It is as a result of they’re badgered by the White Home to do it,” mentioned Schiff, a high-ranking member of the Home Intelligence Committee.
Schiff spoke with Tapper shortly after the “State of the Union” host ended a combative interview with White Home aide Stephen Miller, which promoted the community’s safety to escort him off the set when he refused to depart.
