    A Twitter feud broke out Monday between President Donald Trump and Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Burbank, with the president calling Schiff sleazy and Schiff responding that "your comments and actions are beneath the dignity of the office."

    "Sleazy Adam Schiff, the totally biased Congressman looking into 'Russia,' spends all of his time on television pushing the Dem loss excuse!" the president tweeted this morning.

    Schiff, the ranking Democrat on the House intelligence committee, one of the entities investigating if Russia meddled into last year's U.S. election, responded with insults of his own, criticizing the president for watching too much TV.

    "With respect Mr. President, the problem is how often you watch TV, and that your comments and actions are beneath the dignity of the office," Schiff tweeted.
