Trump Says He Won’t Overrule Whitaker If He Limits Mueller

President Donald Trump insulted Democratic Representative Adam Schiff of California with a tweet that misspelled the Intelligence Committee member’s name in a way that suggests a scatological reference.

“So funny to see little Adam Schitt (D-CA) talking about the fact that Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker was not approved by the Senate, but not mentioning the fact that Bob Mueller (who is highly conflicted) was not approved by the Senate!” Trump tweeted on Sunday.
