President Donald Trump heaped praise on House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes in a Monday morning tweet.

Nunes co-wrote a classified memo with fellow House Republicans which allegedly exposes broad abuse of FISA authority by top officials in the Department of Justice and the FBI.

Nunes has been heavily criticized for releasing the memo before House Democrats had a chance to assemble a memo pushing back against the Republican allegations. Democratic ranking member on the committee Adam Schiff has alleged that Nunes coordinated with the White House on the release, to which the chairman told Fox News “Mr. Schiff knows he is spreading a false narrative there. But that is not new for him. He has spread a false narrative the entire time.”

Schiff previously drew ire from the President early Monday who gave him with a nickname of his own.
