Following Adam Schiff’s stageshow “parody” of President Trump’s phone call with Ukrainian President Velensky, in which every detail was totally fabricated to make Trump look like a mafia boss, Trump is now calling for Schiff to resign!
For some background, here’s the video of Schiff’s made-up version of the call transcript conversation:
President Trump called him out for the totally made up conversation on Twitter, where he called for Schiff to resign and be investigated over fabricating the details and lying to Congress and millions:
President Trump isn't the only one who thinks this is just wrong:
Of course, mainstream media isn't touching it:
The Washington Examiner has more on why Trump is calling for Schiff to resign:
President Trump called for House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff to resign after the California Democrat read a parody of the president’s phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky during a hearing on a whistleblower complaint about the conversation.
“Rep. Adam Schiff fraudulently read to Congress, with millions of people watching, a version of my conversation with the President of Ukraine that doesn’t exist. He was supposedly reading the exact transcribed version of the call, but he completely changed the words to make it sound horrible, and me sound guilty,” Trump tweeted Friday.
“Adam Schiff therefore lied to Congress and attempted to defraud the American Public. He has been doing this for two years. I am calling for him to immediately resign from Congress based on this fraud!” Trump said.
...sound horrible, and me sound guilty. HE WAS DESPERATE AND HE GOT CAUGHT. Adam Schiff therefore lied to Congress and attempted to defraud the American Public. He has been doing this for two years. I am calling for him to immediately resign from Congress based on this fraud!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 27, 2019
Trump later demanded an investigation into Schiff: "He is a sick man!"
Fox News also gave more details into Schiff's "parody" of the Trump-Ukraine call:
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., came under fire on Thursday for reading his own "parody" version of President Trump’s phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky without noting he'd made it all up.
Acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire was on Capitol Hill to defend his handling of the explosive whistleblower complaint alleging President Trump pressured his Ukrainian counterpart to investigate the Biden family.
The complaint contains allegations related to Trump’s call with Zelensky in July, when he urged him to investigate alleged corruption involving former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter.
The White House on Wednesday released an unclassified version of the transcript of the phone call. The memo, which does not reflect a “verbatim transcript” but is based on “notes and recollections” of those memorializing the call, shows Trump congratulating Zelensky on his election victory before Trump eventually gets to the subject of the Bidens, seeking an investigation of some kind.
However, Schiff’s improvised version of the call was exaggerated, apparently for dramatic effect.
“I have a favor I want from you,” Schiff said while appearing to read from a paper. “And I’m going to say this only seven times, so you better listen good. I want you to make up dirt on my political opponent, understand? Lots of it, on this and on that.”
Schiff later chalked his fictional summary of the controversial phone call to a joke.
