Adam Schiff’s self-proclaimed “parody” of Trump’s phone call with Ukrainian President Zelensky hasn’t gone over too well.
You know, the one where he framed President Trump as a mafia boss and made up entire parts of the conversation in front of Congress?
In reference to this, President Trump made a statement earlier in which he called Schiff a “lowlife” and added that he should “resign from office in disgrace and, frankly, they should look at him for treason.”
Here's the clip of President Trump speaking on Adam Schiff and the whistleblower from The Daily Caller on Twitter:
President Trump also reiterated on Twitter:
Mediaite has more to say on Trump's call for Schiff to be looked into for treason:
As Trump hosted Finnish President Sauli Niinisto, he was asked about the press conference Schiff gave with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to outline the impeachment inquiry against him. Trump has flung repeated accusations of treason at Schiff throughout the last few days, and on Wednesday, he once again complained about the congressman’s recent “parody” of his comments
“He should be forced to resign from Congress, Adam Schiff. He’s a lowlife. He should be forced to resign,” Trump said. “It was all fabricated. He should resign from office in disgrace. Frankly they should look at him for treason because he is making up the words of the President of the United States. Not only words, but the meaning and it’s a disgrace. It should not be allowed to happen.”
Townhall also commented:
Speaking during a meeting with Finnish President Sauli Niinistö in the Oval Office Wednesday afternoon, President Trump called for House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff to not only "resign in disgrace," but argued he should be investigated for treason.
"He made up my conversation. He actually made it up. It should be criminal. It should be treasonous. He made it up, every word of it, and read to Congress as if I said it. And I'll tell you what, he should be forced to resign from Congress. Adam Schiff, he's a low life. He should be forced to resign," Trump said. "He took that conversation, which was perfect, he said, 'I can't read this,' so he made up a conversation and he reported it and said it to Congress and the American people."
For reference, here's the video of Schiff's "parody" of the Trump-Ukraine call.
Watch it and decide for yourself if you agree with President Trump that this should garner Schiff being investigated for treason:
