Trump accuses Pelosi of 'treason' and calls for her to be 'immediately impeached'
President Trump accused House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of treason and called for her, along with House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, to be impeached.
"Nancy Pelosi knew of all of the many Shifty Adam Schiff lies and massive frauds perpetrated upon Congress and the American people, in the form of a fraudulent speech knowingly delivered as a ruthless con, and the illegal meetings with a highly partisan 'Whistleblower' & lawyer," he tweeted Sunday night.
The president continued, "This makes Nervous Nancy every bit as guilty as Liddle’ Adam Schiff for High Crimes and Misdemeanors, and even Treason. I guess that means that they, along with all of those that evilly 'Colluded' with them, must all be immediately Impeached!"
Trump has repeatedly railed against Schiff ever since the California Democrat read a summarization of the president's July phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, during which Trump asked the foreign leader to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, the 2020 Democratic front-runner, and his son Hunter.
In addition to calling on Schiff to resign, the president has accused the congressman of helping to write an intelligence community whistleblower's complaint about the call, which paved the way for House Democrats to launch an impeachment inquiry into Trump, after news broke that the unnamed CIA officer spoke with House Intelligence staff before filing the complaint.
Schiff has defended his rendition of Trump's phone call as "at least in part parody" but faced backlash for his earlier knowledge of the complaint. Over the weekend, a second whistleblower with more direct information on the president's dealings with Ukraine came forward.
