Trump Demands Schiff Resign Over Fictitious Opening Statement

House Democrats are making a mockery of congressional hearings.

Democrats are outraged over a whistleblower complaint alleging a “promise” made by President Trump to a foreign national leader in a phone conversation, immediately prompting calls for President Trump’s impeachment.

While the phone transcript between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky was made public, it wasn’t enough to satisfy House Democrats as they continue digging for anything to impeach the president.

Acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire was called to testify on Thursday over his handling of the whistleblower, “who alleges that President Trump used his office to solicit interference by a foreign country in the 2020 U.S. presidential campaign.”

Shockingly, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff used the highly watched hearing as a propaganda tool.

Schiff gave a dramatic and fictitious summary of the Ukraine phone call transcript in his opening statement.

In part, Schiff claimed President Trump said during the phone call to the Ukraine president “I have a favor I want from you” and to “make up dirt on my political opponent.”

Only after Schiff was called out by Ohio Republican Representative Mike Turner did he admit parts of his statement was made up saying it, “was meant to be at least part in parody” and continued if that wasn’t clear there “is a separate problem in and of itself.”

Watch Turner call out Schiff.

President Trump Tweeted Schiff “lied to Congress” and called for Schiff to “immediately resign.”

Schiff responded to President Trump.

There was no shortage of criticism over Schiff’s absurd parody.

Schiff’s words and actions are grossly irresponsible and he must be held accountable for misleading Americans with his fictitious opening statement.
