As Democrats continue to demand redacted grand jury information and President Donald Trump’s financial and tax records, House Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) Thursday accused Trump of trying “to weaponize law enforcement.”

Schiff also attacked Trump’s decision to authorize Attorney General William Barr to declassify information related to the federal investigation of the 2016 presidential campaign.

Rep. Schiff took to Twitter to criticize Trump for making information publicly available while engaging in a dangerous “coverup”:

"While Trump stonewalls the public from learning the truth about his obstruction of justice, Trump and Barr conspire to weaponize law enforcement and classified information against their political enemies. The coverup has entered a new and dangerous phase. This is un-American."
