Breaking: Trump Calls For Dem Rep. Adam Schiff To Resign

President Trump wants House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff to resign from Congress.

In a pair of tweets on Friday morning, the president called for the top Democrat’s resignation after he read a fake transcript before his committee.

The transcript was completely fabricated but was presented as true. Schiff, after getting called out for sharing the false information, claimed it was a “parody.”

“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,” Trump said in a tweet. “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.”

“HE WAS DESPERATE AND HE GOT CAUGHT,” the president added in all caps.

“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!” he concluded.

The Washington Examiner reports Schiff is similarly being criticized by Republican members of Congress for the gesture:

Republicans tore into Schiff on Thursday for reading an altered version of Trump’s call with Zelensky during a hearing with acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire.

Schiff later clarified that his version of the call was “at least part in parody.”

“The fact that that’s not clear is a separate problem in and of itself. Of course, the president never said, ‘If you don’t understand me, I’m going to say it seven more times.’ My point is that’s the message that the Ukraine president was receiving, in not so many words,” Schiff said.

Republican congressional leadership was quick to call Schiff out over the sophomoric stunt.

House Minority Whip Steve Scalise tweeted, “We have the transcript. So why did Schiff make up his own version of the call in a Congressional hearing?”

“Because he knows the transcript shows no quid pro quo or crimes. Dems are literally making stuff up now because they have no legitimate reason to impeach,” he added.

During a presser on Friday morning, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy remarked that Schiff is not the only Democratic member of Congress acting against the president and the country, but the whole Democrat Party was acting “beyond politics.”

“It is totally irresponsible,” he added.
