President Trump on Sunday tweeted that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., should be impeached over their handling of the whistleblower investigation.
Trump said Pelosi was aware of “Shifty Adam Schiff” and his “massive frauds perpetrated upon Congress and the American people.” Trump pointed to Schiff’s “parody” speech in Congress. Pelosi defended the speech and called it “fair.”
Trump was also apparently alluding to reports that Schiff’s false earlier claim that the unnamed whistleblower did not speak to his committee.
Schiff read a dramatization of Trump’s July 25 call to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky during acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire’s hearing last week. Schiff, the chairman of the House Intellegence Committee, improvised parts of the transcript for effect and framed it as satire.
