Trump Angered by Schiff's Latest Hire

The dispute came to light after Trump tweeted early Thursday morning that Schiff is “stealing people who work at the White House.”

 

Trump’s tweet remained unclear throughout the day until Schiff replied to media requests by saying, “we have a long tradition of hiring out of the intelligence community, out of the NSC. If the president is worried about our hiring any former administration people, maybe he should work on being a better employer.”

Schiff’s committee hired former NSC staffer Abigail Grace, who was a career official in her term at the White House. Much of the NSC staff is composed of career officials detailed from different intelligence organizations.

An administration official told The Daily Caller that the president is particularly concerned that Schiff is hiring away ex-White House staffers to gleam inside information. The president’s fears were particularly inflamed after Schiff released a statement Wednesday that said he would open investigations into Trump’s personal finances.


Trump further responded to Schiff's revelation by dismissing the congressman as "a political hack trying to build a name for himself."
