President Trump dropped the hammer on the hapless Adam Schiff and called for an investigation into his behavior.
Specifically, Trump charged Schiff with defrauding Congress and defrauding the American people when he made up quotes and attributed them to Trump.
“I think Adam Schiff should be investigated for what he did. He took to the great chamber, Congress, and he made a speech, and his speech was a fraud,” Trump said.
“Everything he said was a fraud. He went out as though I wrote it. He defrauded the American people.”
That is a big charge, but Trump was just getting warmed up.
“He defrauded Congress. He defrauded himself and his family,” Trump added.
“He got up and made a speech that bore no relationship to what the conversation was. I’ll tell you a lot of people heard that speech and a lot of people thought that’s what I said because they heard his speech.”
“Through the committee, through himself, Schiff met with the whistleblower. They never said that.”
“They never talked about it,” Trump said. “And Nancy Pelosi knew all of this stuff. She’s just as guilty as he is.”
