Trump asks if House Intel Chair Adam Schiff should face 'arrest for treason'

Source: CNBC

President Donald Trump on Monday suggested that House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff could face “arrest for treason” over his recent statement about Trump’s call with Ukraine’s president.

“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,” Trump tweeted.

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

Neither the White House nor a spokesman for Schiff, D-Calif., immediately responded to CNBC’s request for comment on the president’s tweet. The fiery tweet accusing Schiff — a leading voice on the House’s impeachment inquiry into Trump — of “illegally” misrepresenting him came days after the president said at a private staff event that “we used to handle” spies and treason “a little differently than we do now.”

3. The King? Heck he is the "Chosen one" . . . .



Representative Adam Schiff ain't no Mueller. He does not have to answer to Criminal Barr.

12. I hope Schiff has adequate security around him...

I'm a little scared for him...not for an outright attack but for an "unfortunate accident."

I'm making myself scared now...

4. More Trump projection.

I'd say he felt guilty except that would require a conscience.

6. Prima facia abuse of power

When a 'President of the United States' talks/tweets about arresting a political opponent for treason you have a prima facia case of abuse of power.

When a 'President of the United States' talks/tweets threatening "civil war" you have a plain case of breaking his oath of office by subverting his duty to "insure domestic Tranquility".
