Donald Trump Jr. late Thursday laid into House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., after reports appeared to vindicate the younger Trump surrounding Democratic suspicions that he made phone calls to President Trump around the time of the Trump Tower meeting with Russians in June 2016.
Senate investigators obtained phone records which appeared to show that Trump Jr. had actually spoken to two longtime Trump family friends – Brian France, the chief executive of Nascar, and the investor Howard Lorber, the New York Times reported, citing two people briefed on the matter.
Trump Jr. responded to the reports on Twitter, knocking Schiff.
“Has anyone heard from Adam Schiff?” Trump Jr. tweeted. “I imagine he’s busy leaking other confidential info from the House Intelligence Committee to change the subject?!?”

Democrats have long suspected the calls were between Don Jr. and the president regarding a meeting with Russians offering dirt on Hillary during the 2016 campaign.
Schiff has not tweeted since the report came out.
Trump Jr. said in a statement to the paper that, “After a year of hearing about this one ad nauseam, yet another left-wing narrative officially bites the dust.”
