Trump attacks, thanks "leakin' monster" Adam Schiff in one tweet

In Sunday morning tweet, President Trump called Rep. Adam Schiff — the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee — "the leakin' monster of no control," but thanked him for criticizing the Obama administration's lack of action to prevent foreign cyber attacks.

The context: Schiff said the previous administration should have set up a "more forceful deterrent" to cyberattacks after the 2014 Sony Hack. "I think that others around the world watched that and determined that cyber is a cost-free intervention," he said in an interview with NBC's Andrea Mitchell.
