Trump Suggests Treason Arrest for Adam Schiff over Acting Performance


President Donald Trump lashed out Monday at Democratic Sen. Adam Schiff of California over Schiff’s so-called parody version of Trump’s July 25 phone call with Ukraine’s president.

During a hearing Thursday, Schiff, who chairs the House Intelligence Committee, read what he called “the essence” of the phone call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky as revealed by a transcript that was released by the White House.

Schiff put words in Trump’s mouth that made it seem as though the president was demanding a quid pro quo from Zelensky.

Trump asked in a tweet whether Schiff’s actions amount to treason.

“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?” Trump tweeted Monday. [RELATED: The Real Election Interference that the Media Wants You to Forget]

The president also criticized the complaint that was made through the whistleblower process concerning the call.

“The Fake Whistleblower complaint is not holding up. It is mostly about the call to the Ukrainian President which, in the name of transparency, I immediately released to Congress & the public. The Whistleblower knew almost nothing, its 2ND HAND description of the call is a fraud!” Trump tweeted.

He also noted that Ukrainian officials, who were on the call, ought to know more than those who were not. On Sunday, Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina defended Trump during an appearance on CBS News’ “Face the Nation.”

“I have zero problems with this phone call. There’s no quid pro quo here,” the senator said. [RELATED: Shepard Smith Ordered to Stand Down After Feud with Tucker Carlson]

“But I do have a problem with Nancy Pelosi. If you believe that Donald Trump did something to hurt this country, you owe [it] to vote, not talk about impeaching the president,” he said, referring to the House speaker’s use of the Ukraine controversy as a catalyst for an impeachment inquiry.
