MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow detailed the six new staffers on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence hired by the panel's chair, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA).

On Tuesday, it was reported that Schiff had hired former chief of the FBI Financial Crimes Section, Patrick Fallon.

"We can add a little bit of new reporting on that tonight," Maddow noted.

"An intelligence committee staffer tells us tonight that former FBI Financial Crimes Chief Fallon is one of six full-time staffers on Schiff’s team investigating the president now," Maddow reported. "One of six."

"In addition to that FBI financial crimes veteran Patrick Fallon, Schiff’s team includes three former assistant U.S. Attorneys and a Russian speaking investigator," Maddow reported.
