President Donald Trump called for the resignation of Congressman Adam Schiff, the Democrat who directs the political trial investigation against him, for "fraudulently fabricating a statement by the President of the United States" before Congress about his conversation with the President of Ukraine, Volodimir Zelenski.
He also remarked on his Twitter account the difference by which he obtained the presidency in the 2016 elections, but also used a strong language to criticize the initiative of the opposition bank, mostly in the House of Representatives, which drives the process in against him
"Democrats who do nothing should focus on building our Nation, not wasting everyone's time and energy on PORQUERÍAS, which is what they have been doing since I was elected," he wrote in his social network account. He also noted the difference of voters (306 to 223) and advised: "Choose a better candidate this time, they will need it!"
As for the transcription of his "(perfect) conversation" with the Ukrainian president, he insisted that Schiff forged "a statement from the President of the United States and read it to Congress", which leads him to ask for his resignation: " He is sick! ”He concluded.
He continued: “All Democrats who do nothing are focused on challenging the President for having a very good conversation with the Ukrainian President. I knew a lot of people were listening, they even have a transcript. They have been involved in these "things" since the day I was elected. Bad for the country! ”, he added.
Last week, after a July 25 telephone conversation was publicly known in which Trump asked the president of Ukraine to investigate – and harm – Biden, the president of the lower house, Nancy Pelosi appointed Schiff and her committee to lead an investigation that could lead to the removal of the president
Trump criticized Schiff, chairman of the Intelligence Committee, for the way he described the call during a congressional hearing last week. The legislator opened the hearing with a parody of Trump speaking as a mob boss to pressure Zelenski to investigate the Biden.
Trump's request for a "favor" to the President of Ukraine reflects "a classic gangster extortion"said Schiff.
"This is how a mob boss speaks," he said.
Trump had nicknamed him last year as "little Adam Schitt ”, and in recent days he accused him of making "illegally" false statements about the president.
"I want Schiff to be interrogated at the highest level for Fraud and Betrayal”Trump tweeted Sunday.
His comments come after Schiff, as well as the presidents of two other committees, will quote Rudy Giuliani, Trump's personal lawyer, and asked him to hand over the documents related to Ukraine by October 15. Democrats also cited to testify to Mike Pompeo, Secretary of State of the United States, who "apparently was on the call when the president pressured Ukraine to defame his political opponent," they said.
While Pompeo and Giuliani fight against the lower house committees, Trump stepped up his personal attacks on Schiff. “Adam Schiff should be lucky enough to have the brain, honor and strength of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. For a wretch like Schiff, who completely fabricated my words and read them to Congress as if they were said by me, to degrade a West Point first soldier, IT'S SAD! ”, tweeted on Wednesday.
