President Trump offered his first televised reaction to the release of the Democrat rebuttal to the so-called Nunes FISA memo, criticizing intelligence committee member Rep. Adam Schiff.

Trump called Schiff (D-Calif.) a "bad guy," and called his caucus' memo "a nothing."

"That was confirmation, if you call it the Republican memo or Nunes memo, was nothing but a confirmation," Trump said. "A lot of bad things happened on the [Democratic] side... Somebody should look into it."

Trump appeared to call the actions detailed in the memoranda -- regarding the obtaining of a surveillance warrant on a former campaign adviser -- "fraudulent."

The president maintained that neither he nor his team colluded with any Russians, saying that he was simply a "far better candidate" than former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

"Obama was the president during all of this meddling," he said. "He's the one that was supposed to take care of this and he didn't. Nobody brings that up."

Regarding Schiff, Trump added that the Burbank Democrat allegedly leaked information from some of his sensitive meetings and hearings.

"You... see Adam Schiff. He has a meeting. He leaves the meeting [and] calls up reporters and all of a sudden they have news. You're not supposed to do that," he said.

Trump said that Schiff's actions were "probably illegal."

He also called on Congress to pass stiffer background check legislation and praised National Rifle Association Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre and NRA Institute for Legislative Action chief Chris Cox.

"They are great patriots," he said.
