On Sunday, ahead of Monday’s Republican planned vote in the House to censure Adam Schiff, President Trump scorched congressional Democrats and demanded Adam Schiff be deposed. In the same tweets, he criticized Republicans for not fighting back against the left’s series of political hoaxes drummed up against him and the GOP.

Trump began his tirade by posting: “This Scam going on right now by the Democrats against the Republican Party, and me, was all about a perfect phone call I had with the Ukrainian President. He’s already stated, NO PRESSURE! Where is the Whistleblower, or the 2nd Whistleblower, or the ‘informant?’ All gone…..”

“….because their so-called story didn’t come even close to matching up with the exact transcript of the phone call,” he continued. “Was it a Corrupt Adam Schiff con? Why didn’t the IG see this? When do we depose Shifty Schiff to find out why he fraudulently made up my phone call and read this … fiction to Congress and the American People? I demand his deposition. He is a fraud, just like the Russia Hoax was, and the Ukraine Hoax is now. When do the Do Nothing Democrats pay a price for what they are doing to our Country, & when do the Republicans finally fight back?”

Several hours later, the president retweeted a Turning Point USA post that read: “House Republicans plan to vote to Censure Adam Schiff tomorrow. Next, get him to testify under oath.” Trump added to the post: “Adam Schiff is a Corrupt Politician!”


The president is expressing the same frustrations heard on the street among Trump-supporting conservatives. Three years of legislative paralysis caused by the Democrats’ political mayhem is beyond tolerable, especially given the fact that Republicans remain passively turning the other cheek.

Schiff is the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee and has played a key role in the current Ukraine witch hunt. Tucker Carlson recently called him “demonstrably mentally ill” and said that he is involved in what amounts to “an administrative coup d’état.”

In September, Schiff now famously presented a fictional “parody” transcript of Trump’s phone call with the Ukraine president as fact during a committee hearing with Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire. He has also lied and misled the public by insisting he did not know the whistleblower, in spite of evidence to the contrary.

“How many times has he lied to us? He should be censured,” said Kevin McCarthy on Friday. McCarthy is the top Republican in the House of Representatives.

Republicans are expected to bring a motion to censure Schiff on Monday, though the Democrat majority is expected to table the motion.
