Trump Baselessly Claims ‘Freak’ Adam Schiff Will ‘Change the Words’ of Impeachment Inquiry Transcripts
President Donald Trump baselessly claimed transcripts from his impeachment inquiry will be altered in some way by “freak” Rep. Adam Schiff, demanding the GOP release their own versions.
“If Shifty Adam Schiff, who is a corrupt politician who fraudulently made up what I said on the “call,” is allowed to release transcripts of the Never Trumpers & others that are & were interviewed, he will change the words,” Trump claimed Sunday night.
“Republicans should give their own transcripts of the interviews to contrast with Schiff’s manipulated propaganda,” he continued.
Trump also called for the impeachment of Schiff, saying he is “really the one who should be impeached!”
There is no mechanism to impeach members of Congress.
A number of House Democrats have said transcripts of private testimony in the impeachment inquiry will be released to the public in the coming week.
Trump also attempted to corral Republicans who have said Trump may have “done a quid pro quo” but that it is not impeachable behavior.
“Perhaps so, but read the transcript, there is no quid pro quo!” Trump said.
