Mike Pompeo, the served as CIA Director and then Secretary of State during Donald Trump’s administration, during an appearance on Fox News Channel’s “Outnumbered” claimed he knew that Schiff had leaked classified information. Pompeo who has specified that he was considering the possibility of running for president, said when information was delivered to Schiff and his staff, it turned up in places where it should not have been “with alarming regularity.”

“To be clear, Adam Schiff shouldn’t be anywhere near the Intelligence Committee,” Pompeo said tweeted.

“To be clear, I don’t back down from bullies,” Schiff said answered.
