Since the beginning the impeachment inquiry into Donald Trump, Adam Schiff has been an important figure. Schiff plays an important role as he serves as the Chair of the House Intelligence Committee. Trump has long has issues with the California congressman, referring to him as “Liddle Adam Schitt.”
As the intelligence chair, Schiff has played a prominent role in the early days of the impeachment inquiry into the President. On Sunday night, Trump went on a Twitter rampage against the intelligence chair and demanded that he be deposed.
Trump began his rant by claiming that Ukranian President Volodmyr Zelensky had said he wasn’t pressured to capitulate to US demands. The President wrote, “This Scam going on right now by the Democrats against the Republican Party, and me, was all about a perfect phone call I had with the Ukrainian President. He’s already stated, NO PRESSURE!”
The President then claimed that the whistleblower responsible for the investigation didn’t have accurate information. Trump continued, “Where is the Whistleblower, or the 2nd Whistleblower, or the “informant?” All gone…..Because their so-called story didn’t come even close to matching up with the exact transcript of the phone call. Was it a Corrupt Adam Schiff con? Why didn’t the IG see this? When do we depose Shifty Schiff to find out why he fraudulently made up my phone call and read this fiction to Congress and the American People?”
The President ended the tweetstorm writing, “I demand his deposition. He is a fraud, just like the Russia Hoax was, and the Ukraine Hoax is now. When do the Do Nothing Democrats pay a price for what they are doing to our Country, & when do the Republicans finally fight back?”
