Trump: "Rep. Adam Schiff illegally made up a FAKE & terrible statement...Arrest for Treason?"

Donald J. Trump
@realDonaldTrump

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?

14. Wrong. But we still don't have a transcript that even the WH is willing to label "verbatim".


Schiff paraphrased tRump's conversation. Mostly it was accurate, but it was clear that for example when Schiff said tRump had told Zelensky he would tell him seven times to get dirt on Biden that that was a parody. Schiff has explained that when the GOP committee members feigned incredulity he made clear to everyone that those were not tRump's actual words.

The "transcript" is not the whole story of course, even if it was complete.

16. Here's a good summary/analysis of what Schiff said vs the Con.

It's CNN, so I don't think there's a paywall.

They are making a mountain out of a molehill, as my grandmother used to say. We would be happy if the right "mis-spoke" as accurately as Schiff did with his comments. Again, the double-standard: IOKIYR

2. Scared Donnie? Of your BIG MOUTH perhaps......

Donald Trump continues to dig his hole deeper with each Tweet. Rest assured Congress is going to have all of them as further evidence of Trump's guilt.

The phone transcripts released from the White House are damaging enough.

3. Trump threatening a member of Congress

Should be more than enough for all members to remove him from office, and if they don't believe this was more than enough they should be removed to.

5. He's an idiot!

I don't know how many times I have used, "He's an idiot" as a reply title. I'd say at least a handful, though I could certainly use it in every thread about Trump.

I have mixed feelings about what Adam Schiff did with the interpretive reading of the transcript. On one hand, it was a good summary of the intent of the transcript and for people who are just tuning in to what Trump has been doing the past 3 years, it was a good grounding in his basic demeanor toward the office of the president. On the other hand, Schiff's reading may have opened the door to criticism about the veracity of the interpretation which could lead to another distracting argument.

Ultimately, I think Schiff is fine in what he did and the way overblown reaction from Trump just serves to make Trump seem the stupid crazy person he is.

7. Do we put that...

on the growing list of Imperial Decrees, or does he have to reword it next time he repeats it? I do wish he could be more explicit. It is hard to keep up with Benedict Manson's harried pace.

I have my list ready here.

8. Aren't there some rules around twitter?

Haven’t they suspended some peoples accounts for inciting violence and such? I don’t partake myself, I see posts here of his crazy shit.

9. Donnie, read the definition of treason, you illiterate slob. Dissing you aint treason.

He thinks he and the country are the same thing. He thinks ‘aid and comfort to our enemies’ includes HIS enemies, which is anyone who doesn’t praise him.

10. If MF45's claim had any merit, there are legitimate legal channels

available with which to pursue the allegation. Twitter is not one of them.

MF45 is just too stupid/ignorant/immature/insane to use them.

19. The Way I Understood What Adam Schiff Did & Said Is This.....

He stated what was in the description of the telephone call that was made available to the committee from the WH. Then he went on to illustrate how it would have sounded if a mafioso would say the same thing in their lingo.

Something to the effect that if the American Public doesn't understand what Trump was conveying to the Ukrainian president - maybe they'd understand what was conveyed by hearing it in the lingo that they are used to in mobster movies or TV.

He didn't say that this is what Trump actually said - but he said that this is what the intent of what Trump was trying to get across to the Ukrainian president.

Is that how others here on DU interpreted it?
