President Donald Trump has suggested that maybe California Congressman Adam Schiff should be arrested for treason.

Schiff, who presented false dialogue during a House hearing from the president’s much-debated call with the Ukrainian president, was the target of Trump’s latest Twitter tirade on Monday morning.

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

Schiff defended his comments during the House hearing as parody, but many of his Republican colleagues were not buying into that excuse.

One interesting response to Trump’s latest Schiff criticism came from actor Randy Quaid, who recently suggested that he is interested in challenging Schiff for his congressional seat. It remains to be seen how serious the “Independence Day” actor is about the comments since legal issues led to him leaving California, but he remains one of Trump’s most vocal supporters on social media.

“Yes! Arrest for defrauding America. Arrest for treason & for perjury. They rig elections & refuse to accept the results bc God’s will is far greater than they are. When they harass our president they harass our country. We are prepared to fight even if it means civil war,” Quaid responded to the Schiff tweet.

Trump went on to defend himself on Monday morning from the whistleblower complaint about his phone call.
