Trump Jr. trolls Schiff after Mueller summary’s release

Donald Trump Jr. took to Twitter on Sunday to troll House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) hours after Attorney General William Barr delivered a summary of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation to Congress.

As lawmakers from both sides of the aisle reacted following Barr’s summary of Mueller’s lengthy investigation into collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia to interfere in the 2016 election, Trump Jr. knocked Schiff for remaining quiet.

“Has anyone heard from slimy Adam #fullofschiff Schiff today?” Trump Jr. wrote in a post on Twitter Sunday evening. “I mean it must be embarrassing to have have spent the last 2 years as the leader of the tinfoil hat brigade and have it all come crashing down so quick.”

Trump Jr. borrowed the “full of Schiff” reference from his father. President Trump has consistently ripped the California lawmaker, who is leading a congressional investigation into Trump.

{mosads}Trump’s son added that he is “legitimately concerned for his mental state,” referring to Schiff.

On Sunday morning, before Barr delivered his letter to Congress, Schiff said Congress would have to consider impeaching Trump if Mueller’s report found “overwhelming evidence of criminality” on Trump’s part.

According to Barr’s letter, which summarized the conclusions from Mueller’s investigation, there was no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia to interfere in the 2016 election.

The letter says that Mueller did not make a conclusion as to whether Trump obstructed justice in the investigation of Russia’s election interference, though Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein decided they would not pursue an obstruction of justice charge against Trump.
