During an appearance on CNN's "State of the Union," Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) took some shots at Donald Trump and suggested he may not be smart enough to know what should be kept secret and what shouldn't.
Speaking with host Jake Tapper, the Democrat who sits on the Jan 6 House select committee investigating the insurrection, was asked about Trump's belief that he can declassify top secret documents just by thinking about doing it.
"That’s not how it works. Those comments don’t demonstrate much intelligence of any kind. If you could simply declassify by thinking about it, then frankly, if that’s his view, he’s even more dangerous than we may have thought,” he told the host.
Continuing in that vein, the California Democrat added, "People work hard to get that information. People put their lives at risk to get that information. That information protects American lives. And for him to treat it so cavalierly shows both what a continuing danger the man is, but also how very little regard he has for anything but himself."
"He could simply spout off on anything he read in a presidential daily brief or anything that he was briefed on by the CIA director to a visiting Russian delegation or any other delegation and simply say, ‘Well, I thought about it and therefore, when the words came out of my mouth, they were declassified,"' he suggested to the CNN host.

Fox News host Geraldo Rivera compared Sens. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Josh Hawley (R-MO) to flat-earthers for insisting that the 2020 presidential election may have been stolen from former President Donald Trump.
In a tweet on Sunday, Rivera lashed out at the two Republican senators.
"Election Deniers-who really believe 2020 was stolen-are lost causes," he wrote on Twitter. "I feel sorry for them, but they’ve decided the world is flat."
"Much worse: those who know better but support the Big Lie anyway," he added. "Like TedCruz and Josh Hawley. Everything they say should jam the bulls--t filter."
Appearing on MSNBC's "The Sunday Show," former Donald Trump lawyer Michael Cohen said the past week was nothing but a parade of bad news for his former boss and that the possibility that Trump will end up in court facing New York Attorney General Letitia James could prove to be very costly.
Reacting to James filing a civil suit against Trump and his three eldest children for fraud -- and asking for a $250 million fine -- Cohen said the fine and additional penalities could grow to be even bigger.
"First of all they had an opportunity to settle," he told host Jonathan Capehart. "We don't know what the facts behind that are. However, the $250 million pursuant to the 200-page 200 direct age indictment 200-page indictment by our unshakable attorney general, attorney general, that's the base that she is looking for. That's not the ceiling."
"We're talking about anywhere, in my estimation, based upon the documents that I know the attorney general has, I suspect that they're probably looking at somewhere between $750 million, to 750 million to one billion dollars in penalties and fines. fines."
"So, do I think the Trump organization is trouble? Absolutely," he added.
"Do you think Trump is finally on the road to be held legally accountable?" host Capehart later asked.
"The answer is yes," he replied before later adding, "Everything right now is going bad for Donald."
