Rep. Adam Schiff is the highest ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, and both he and Nunes have been embroiled in a public back-and-forth about their panel’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.
Last week, special counsel Robert Mueller unveiled indictments against 13 Russian nationals and three Russian entities for meddling in the 2016 presidential election.
In the indictments, Mueller’s team alleged the Russians relied heavily on social media to sow discord amongst Americans leading up to the election.
