President Trump on Saturday blasted Democrats for pushing to investigate his finances while swiping at House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), calling him “little shifty Schiff.”

“There’s no collusion, so now they go and morph into ‘let’s inspect every deal he’s ever done,’ ” he said to a crowd at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). “These people are sick.”

{mosads}“I saw little shifty Schiff yesterday,” Trump added. “He went into a meeting and he said, ‘We’re going to look into his finances.’ I said ‘Where did that come from? He always talked about Russia.’ ”

Schiff last month announced a sweeping probe into Trump’s finances and potential ties to Russia. Trump afterward condemned Schiff as a “political hack,” but Schiff defended the investigation as “meaningful oversight.” 

Democrats also questioned Trump’s former attorney Michael Cohen on the president’s finances at a hearing on Wednesday. Cohen told Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) that Trump purposefully inflated his assets for insurance reasons.

CPAC is an annual gathering of conservatives with high-profile speakers. It is attended largely by conservative university students.
