(Newser) – Rep. Adam Schiff kept up his public feud with President Trump Sunday by calling him "weak" and "dishonest" on State of the Union, per CNN. "I have been briefed by the CIA. And while I cannot discuss the contents of the briefing in any way, I can say that I think the president is being dishonest with the American people," says Schiff of Trump's assertion that the CIA lacks evidence to blame Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman for Jamal Khashoggi's death. Trump "feels that, by saying that we don't know or that the world is a dangerous place or everybody does it, he thinks it makes him look strong," adds Schiff. "It actually makes him look weak. It means that our allies don't respect us, our enemies don't fear us." Also around the Sunday dial:

  • Immigration reform: Trump "has gut-punched us on that a number of times," Sen. Amy Klobuchar says on ABC's This Week, per Politico. She says Trump has "chosen to weaponize" and "politicize" the immigration issue.
