President Trump on Tuesday said people shouldn't "expect too much" at the congressional election security briefings scheduled for later in the day because House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) was involved in organizing them.
“There is another Russia, Russia, Russia meeting today,” Trump tweeted “It is headed up by corrupt politician Adam “Shifty” Schiff, so I wouldn’t expect too much!,” tagging acting Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Chad Wolf in the tweet.

Members of the House and Senate are set to receive separate classified briefings on the state of election security from top administration officials on Tuesday afternoon.
Schiff, who was one of the key players in the impeachment inquiry into Trump, pushed back against the president, tweeting that Trump was incorrect “as usual.”
Trump is using the Democrat's claims of election interference as an excuse for losing to him as a way to discredit the seriousness of their actions outside of being politically motivated.
Mr. President, you are wrong. As usual.— Adam Schiff (@RepAdamSchiff) March 10, 2020
Today’s briefing for all House Members focuses on the threat of foreign interference in our election.
The briefers are agency heads and senior officials. They are your own people.
We will insist on the truth, whether you like it or not. https://t.co/bl4HUlPprj
