Congressman Adam Schiff threatened to launch yet another new investigation into the Trump administration this week; sending a letter to the Director of National Intelligence to receive additional material by April 16th.
“New: Intel Chair Schiff sent a letter today to acting DNI @RichardGrenell raising concern he is reorganizing w/o receiving congressional authorization. Asks him to produce info to committee by April 16,” posted one reporter from the Hill.
“His letter was sent to the press before it was sent to me. These press leaks politicizing the intelligence community must stop,” replied Director Richard Grenell.

“In the letter, Schiff questions the firing of Michael Atkinson. Atkinson, in his position as inspector general, turned over a whistleblower complaint to Congress that led to impeachment hearings into Trump,” adds the website.
