White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham ripped House Intelligence Chair Adam Schiff in a wide ranging interview with Howard Kurtz this morning.
Grisham said that Schiff’s obsession with President Trump is a mental issue.

Kurtz started things off by asking about the President’s Sunday morning tweetstorm that called impeachment articles rammed through by Democrats “a hoax” and an act of “massive election interference.”
In one of his tweets Trump wrote “Shifty Adam Schiff is a CORRUPT POLITICIAN, and probably a very sick man. He has not paid the price, yet, for what he has done to our Country!”

Adam Schiff and the Democrats immediately called that tweet a “threat.”
Kurtz picked up on this and said to Grisham “That sounds like a vague threat.”
“I disagree,” Grisham replied almost instantly. “People put meanings behind what he said. The president speaks in a very unique way, he’s a counter-puncher, he’s saying what it’s on his mind.”
“What does he mean Schiff hasn’t paid the price?” Kurtz then asked.
“I haven’t talked to him about it yet,” Grisham responded before saying that what the President meant was Schiff’s “price” would be with the voters. She then said “frankly it seems like he’s having a little bit of a mental issue when you sit on the floor for hours and hours and hours. He’s obsessed with this president and trying to take him down.”
Kurtz then added that Schiff whined that Trump’s tweet as a threat on Meet The Press, which Grisham naturally called “ridiculous” grandstanding on Schiff’s part.
