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.

Update, second Trump tweet: "Now that Adam Schiff is starting to blame President Obama for Russian meddling in the election, he is probably doing so as yet another excuse that the Democrats, lead by their fearless leader, Crooked Hillary Clinton, lost the 2016 election. But wasn’t I a great candidate?"
