President Donald Trump took to Twitter today demanding House Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff resign immediately, per The Hill. Trump accused Schiff of reciting a parody of the telephone conversation between him and Ukrainian president that is at the heart of the current media storm, framing and rewording it in such a way to make the president sound guilty. Trump tweeted his displeasure to the world.
"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."
The tweet that followed asked Schiff to resign from Congress, opening with an all-caps statement.
"HE WAS DESPERATE AND HE GOT CAUGHT. 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!"
"You're right about one thing — your words need no mockery. Your own words and deeds mock themselves. But most importantly here, they endanger our country."
