Trump calls Schiff ‘political hack’ as Dems open new Russia probe, send transcripts to Mueller

One day after President Trump decried what he called “the politics of revenge” and “partisan investigations” in his State of the Union address, Democratic House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff announced a new, wide-ranging probe into the president’s foreign business dealings and Russian election meddling.

The move was fiercely condemned by Trump, who called Schiff a “political hack” on a partisan search-and-destroy mission.

The Intelligence Committee on Wednesday also voted to hand over a slew of interview transcripts to Special Counsel Robert Mueller that were generated by the panel’s previous Russia investigation, which was conducted under GOP leadership and concluded last March. That investigation found “no evidence” of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government in the 2016 election.

Republicans had previously voted to release the transcripts publicly, but that has been held up by an intelligence community review to ensure no sensitive materials are disclosed.
