A White House tracking report reveals Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., has spent 14 hours in television appearances since January, following a Twitter dispute on Monday between President Trump and Schiff.
Schiff, the top ranking Democratic member on the House Intelligence Committee that is currently investigating ties between the Trump campaign and Russia, has made 123 television appearances, the majority of which were on CNN and MSNBC, according to an article by the Washington Free Beacon.
Spanning 14 hours, 8 minutes and 55 seconds in total, Schiff's most recent appearance was on CBS's "Face the Nation" program on Sunday morning.
"It really makes you wonder where Rep. Schiff is finding the time to actually do his day job of representing his congressional district," the White House's Director of Rapid Response Andy Hemmings said in a statement on Monday.
According to the Washington Free Beacon, the White House also tracked televised appearances by Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., who is the top Democrat in the Senate Intelligence Committee, which is conducting a similar investigation as its House counterpart. Warner has spent 5 hours, 55 minutes and 13 seconds on television over the course of 60 televised appearances.
Trump and Schiff's Twitter dispute began Monday morning when Trump tweeted that "Sleazy Adam Schiff, the totally biased Congressman looking into ‘Russia,' spends all of his time on television pushing the Dem loss excuse!"

Schiff fired back, saying, "With respect, Mr. President, the problem is how often you watch TV, and that your comments and actions are beneath the dignity of your office."
Spokesmen for Schiff and Warner did not immediately respond to the Washington Examiner's request for a comment.
