Trump Asks if Adam Schiff Should Be Arrested for 'Treason'

President slams top Democrat for making-up 'Trump quotes' at Congress hearing

President Donald Trump has trashed Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) for fabricating statements from the Ukraine call transcript, asking if the top Democrat should be arrested "for treason."

The president has been rightly outraged after California Democrat Schiff fabricated statements during a live-televised congressional hearing while addressing the House Intelligence Committee last Thursday.

Schiff was speaking before Congress shortly after the White House released the transcript from the now-infamous phone call between President Trump and Ukraine's newly elected leader President Volodymyr Zelensky.

An anonymous whistleblower claims Trump threatened to withhold US military aid from the Ukrainian government to pressure officials into investigating former Vice President Joe Biden - an allegation that triggered Democrats to launch an impeachment inquiry against the president.

Despite the call showing Trump discussing the allegations with Zelensky, the transcript shows no mention of US aid or any suggestion of pressure from the president against Ukraine to investigate Biden.

After the transcript was released, Schiff fabricated statements from the call that made it appear as though Trump was giving a Mafia-style shakedown of Ukraine to force them to "make up dirt" on Biden, and read out the false quotes before Congress, during a hearing that was live-televised nationally before the American people.

“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,” Trump raged on Twitter Monday.

“It bore NO relationship to what I said on the call. Arrest for Treason?

The president blasted Schiff Sunday night for fabricating a portion of Trump’s conversation with Ukraine's President Zelensky.

“His lies were made in perhaps the most blatant and sinister manner ever seen in the great Chamber," Trump said Sunday.

"He wrote down and read terrible things, then said it was from the mouth of the President of the United States.

"I want Schiff questioned at the highest level for Fraud & Treason,” Trump declared.

Following an intense backlash, Schiff later claimed that his fabricated words were meant as a “parody.”

Trump and Schiff have repeatedly clashed over the course of his presidency.

The president has previously referred to the congressman as "sick" and a “little pencil-neck.”
