House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff for brains has become the public face of the House Democratic impeachment drive. The President called on Schiff to resign and suggested he be investigated and potentially be jailed for “treason”. President Trump never one to hold back on his feelings, lets it fly on Twitter –
Rep. Adam Schiff illegally made up a FAKE & terrible statement, pretended it to be mine as the most important part of my call to the Ukrainian President, and read it aloud to Congress and the American people. It bore NO relationship to what I said on the call. Arrest for Treason?
Like every American, I deserve to meet my accuser, especially when this accuser, the so-called “Whistleblower,” represented a perfect conversation with a foreign leader in a totally inaccurate and fraudulent way. Then Schiff made up what I actually said by lying to Congress…In addition, I want to meet not only my accuser, who presented SECOND & THIRD HAND INFORMATION, but also the person who illegally gave this information, which was largely incorrect, to the “Whistleblower.” Was this person SPYING on the U.S. President? Big Consequences!
Rep Adam Schiff responds on ABC’s “This Week:
“The president believes that it is his God-given right to shake down foreign leaders for help in his re-election, and he should not be encumbered by the public finding out about it,”
“That’s what has incensed the president. And I am willing to take the brunt of that,” he added.
