The U.S. president says Chairman of the United States House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Adam Schiff has lost credibility.

"Adam Schiff has zero credibility. Another fantasy to hurt the Republican Party!" he said.

He later added: "Liddle' Adam Schiff, who has worked unsuccessfully for 3 years to hurt the Republican Party and President, has just said that the Whistleblower, even though he or she only had second hand information, 'is credible.' How can that be with zero info and a known bias."

As UNIAN reported earlier, the U.S. House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence on September 26 released a declassified version of the whistleblower complaint containing allegations about Trump's conduct during a phone call with President of Ukraine Zelensky on July 25, 2019.
