DNI response to Sen Chuck Schumer about Russian Intel Chiefs' visit to US. We've just obtained this - notes for context: SVR chief is sanctioned by US and therefore couldn't normally visit without special permission; no mention of reports that GRU chief also visited.
Adam Schiff: If by "tough", you mean praising Putin, denying Russian involvement in our election, and refusing to impose the sanctions Congress passed, then you are one tough customer. Otherwise, the word you are looking for is "weak."

@RepMaxineWaters: John Kelly needs to resign.
@RepMaxineWaters: If you're wondering why Kelly couldn't keep his lies straight -first trying to defend wife beater Porter, then claiming he voluntarily resigned,then claiming he fired him - this is the same person who lied on Rep.Wilson. Even after video proved him a liar, he refused to apologize
@RepMaxineWaters: John Kelly is also complicit in knowing that Porter had a history of wife beating. This would've been revealed in the investigative reports that were so clearly identified by FBI Director Wray when he testified before the United States Senate.
