Trump: Schiff Tried to Mislead Americans at Hearing, Should Resign

September 29, 2019   |   by James G. Dalton

President Donald Trump claimed Friday morning that Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., tried to mislead the American people by changing the words of a call transcript with Trump and his Ukrainian counterpart Volodymyr Zelenskiy.

The morning after Schiff, who chairs the House Intelligence Committee, read portions of a whistleblower complaint and the aforementioned transcript during a hearing on the subject that featured Acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire, Trump took some shots at the congressman.

“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. He was supposedly reading the exact transcribed version of the call, but he completely changed the words to make it…” Trump wrote in the first of two tweets.

“…sound horrible, and me sound guilty. 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!” Trump added.

It’s unclear which portions of the transcript Trump was referring to. Rep. Brad Wenstrup, R-Ohio, is a member of the Intelligence committee and he also said Schiff tried to misrepresent the facts.

Schiff is one of several Democrats leading an impeachment case against Trump over allegations that he used his office to force Ukraine to investigate his political rival Joe Biden.

    Adam Schiff has been trying for a very long time to pull the wool over everyone’s eyes to make himself look good. He is a shifty person with no knowledge of what is going on. Why is he still there at the Whitehouse?? What does he do? They call him shifty for a reason. We all have him figured out.

    I was watching Adam Schiff as he was suppose to read the call document – instead he changed the words trying to make funny of something very important. He lied to Congress and should be fired for doing so.

    This is the most shameful act of hatred and ‘partyism’ at high levels as I have ever seen, and proves that it is all based on bluster with the hope that it will get enough press so that it will gain credibility. “well what have I to fear’…he probably says…”i’ve got the MEDIA …the Press…behind me…..” etc.

    I am a Computer executive (retired) from Hewlett Packard, and have voted in Presidential elections since 1960 when JFK was elected. I represent and am part of a growing cluster of hundreds of thousands like me who can see through what these democrats have “turned out to be” – quite,quite different from the democrats I knew in 60’s and 70’s and 80’s and 90’s.
    What you are seeing now is ‘desperate’ and ‘unconscionable’. They are so afraid of TRUMP that they are willing to abandon their scruples, their conscience. GONE is their good sense of duty to the American people – who elected them.

    Don’t forget the payoff to one of his teenaged soy boys, to the tune of $800 Grand, paid with tax payer provided funds! Shifty Schift is one slimy so & so! No telling what else would be found if he were looked into.

    I don’t believe Schiff was in this all by himself. But he was the one to say he would go to any length to stop Trump no matter what. I believe he hated Trump so bad that he just didn’t care. Yes he should be forced to resign from congress without his pension but it should be taken further than that. He lied to congress and should by all means go to jail just like anyone else would for lying to Congress. He deserves it. Let that be the length he goes to. Let it be jail with those he help put in jail for lying to Congress. He’s no better. President Trump prevails again. MAGA

    When one is a corrupt politician, lying is their weapon to survival. No wonder these people are so evil they are now devil worshippers and have taken God away from everything in exchange for greed of money and power.

    Perhaps there really is such a thing as being addicted to telling lies to get yourself through life . I am seeing that more and more every single day I live.

      The Democrats are suffering from a severe case of obstipation . They are bloated with toxic gas that their thinking need a good laxative of reality.

    Thank you Democrates for ensuring President Trump win by a landslide and for Republicans winning the house back. Thanks for not starting a second civil war.

    This POS is typical of what has become the “dumbycrap” party. How he can still be in any position in the government of the UNITED STATES only goes to show that the “dumbs” can and will and have used any and all slimball tactics they can to get rid of someone that isn’t of their low caliber–“dumbycrap” theater has stoked the airwaves since election day

    This Democrat will never resign. No one else would take him. It’s scary that he is on the committee of national intelligence. What a contradiction in terms?

    Adam Schiff has been lying and cheating since he’s been voted into office! Vote him out!! He is a disgusting disgrace! He’s full of poison and hate! He has accomplished nothing but mayhem and disorder!! He is seditious and should be tried for his treasonous acts!! He does not have the American people as his first priority, as he should!!

    Just look at his eyes! He is running scared & it shows. What does it take to get him removed (without a pension too) from any kind of office from the United States of America. Schiff is full of BS & you all know we the people know it now for sure too. Bye Bye Shifty Schiff!!!
