on

Donald Trump Jr is demanding an investigation of three prominent Democrats on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, The New York Times reported Tuesday.

Schiff is the ranking Democrat on the Intelligence Committee.

“To maintain the credibility of the investigation, this committee should determine whether any member or staff member violated the rules by leaking information to the media concerning the interview or by purposely providing inaccurate information which led to significant misreporting,” Alan S. Futerfas, Mr. Trump’s lawyer, wrote.

NY Magazine published the full content of the letter.

“After the Interview, the public release of confidential, non-public information by Committee members continued unabated. For example, that same evening and the following day, several members of the Minority, including Representatives Schiff, Speier and Swalwell, appeared on the news to discuss certain details of the Interview,” the letter argued. “In an attempt to discredit my client, they did not accurately portray the breadth, scope and substance of the Interview.”

In a Tuesday interview with the Catholic TV network EWTV, correspondent Tracy Sabol asked Trump if he had a message for Catholic voters.

"Well, I think anybody having to do with, frankly, religion, but certainly the Catholic Church, you have to be with President Trump when it comes to pro-life, when it comes to all of the things, these people are going to take all of your rights away, including Second Amendment," the president said, "because, you know, Catholics like their Second Amendment. So I saved the Second Amendment."

“He still doesn’t get it,” the source said. “He does not get it.”
