Schiff knocks Trump: Negotiations over Moscow property not ‘very cool’

Share:

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) said Sunday that President Trump‘s negotiations during the 2016 election to build a property in Moscow were “very compromising.”

“Whether it was legal or not remains to be seen. It certainly wasn’t very cool. More than that, it was very compromising of our country,” Schiff said on ABC’s “This Week.”

Schiff, the incoming chairman of the House Intelligence Committee and a frequent Trump antagonist, was responding directly to the president’s assertion that his business ties during the campaign were “very legal & very cool.”- READ MORE
