(Newser) – President Trump likened watching video of the ISIS raid that killed the group's commander to watching a movie. Now he says the White House might release the video, or at least a portion of it. "We're thinking about it," he told reporters Monday, reports ABC News. "We may take certain parts of it and release it, yes,” he said. In the same gathering, Trump defended his decision not to inform congressional leaders in advance of the raid against Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. "I've watched Adam Schiff leak," he said, referring to the House Intelligence Committee chairman in charge of the impeachment investigation. He called Schiff "the biggest leaker in Washington."
