President Trump took to Twitter on Friday to try to undercut House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam B. Schiff (D-Calif.) and complain about media coverage of ongoing investigations into possible coordination between his 2016 campaign and Russian Federation.
Both men told Solomon that their encounter at the Aspen security conference was brief, despite photographs of the two together in July of 2018. Could Adam Schiff be in the terminal stage of Trump Derangement Syndrome?
The president started his Friday by parroting Fox News' Gregg Jarrett for saying that Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr hasn't found evidence yet to prove the Trump-Russia collusion theory. Thom Tillis (R-NC) said this week that his committee so far found no evidence that the president's campaign coordinated with the Russian government.

JaVale McGee got similar treatment, except it was the opposite message. "I don't make those decisions", Gentry told the media. That would leave just a handful of players on the Lakers' roster that have not been discussed in the negotiations.
"If we write a report based upon the facts that we have, then we don't have anything that would suggest there was collusion by the Trump campaign and Russia", Burr said.
Trump's Friday morning tweets again showed how the president and his legal team want to turn the various investigations of the 2016 election, his businesses and presidency into a public relations battle.
"It is all a GIANT AND ILLEGAL HOAX, developed long before the election itself, but used as an excuse by the Democrats as to why Crooked Hillary Clinton lost the Election!" he continued, referring to the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee. Senate Judiciary member Lindsey Graham and others, for instance, have called on the Justice Department to name a second special counsel to investigate the actions of the Clinton campaign and Fusion GOP during the 2016 campaign.
