The Hill reports:
President Trump on Wednesday denounced House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) as a “political hack” for opening a sweeping investigation into Trump’s ties to Russia and his personal finances.
“He has no basis to do that. He’s just a political hack who’s trying to build a name for himself,” Trump told reporters at the White House after announcing his pick to lead the World Bank.
“It’s just presidential harassment and it’s unfortunate and it really does hurt our country,” Trump said of the probe.

"Never heard of him," Trump first says about Adam Schiff, a Democratic congressman he has repeatedly attacked. Then a few minutes later he says Schiff is "just a political hack trying to build a name for himself."
