'5th Grade Conduct': Adam Schiff Blasts Trump's 'Impetuous Act' in Postponing Dems' Trip
"Certainly, the Speaker's office is in communications with the Defense Department about this," Schiff, a Democrat from Burbank, said.
Before he spoke to the media, Schiff appeared irritated as he stepped off an Air Force bus, clutching his coat and walking briskly toward the Capitol complex.

Schiff called the cancellation "fifth grade conduct" and said that "whatever [Trump's] motivation," his committee will continue to "do oversight" of the government.
