“I think it’s very possible his staff worked with the White House and coordinated the whole effort with the White House because it looks so much like this earlier effort, which we know was coordinated with the White House by the same chairman, who had said he would recuse himself but of course hasn’t,” Schiff, the top Democrat on the Intelligence panel, told ABC’s “This Week.”

The document details accusations it argues "raise concerns with the legitimacy and legality of certain DOJ and FBI interactions with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court," referring to the surveillance warrants for a former Trump campaign aide.

Schiff said on Sunday Trump’s use of the memo “could be evidence of the president’s intent to interfere with the investigation” into Russia's election meddling and possible collusion between Trump's campaign and Moscow.
