Jim Jordan Tears Into Adam Schiff For Lack of Transparency: Release All Text Messages and Transcripts!

Since Democrats began an impeachment inquiry, President Donald Trump has repeatedly lashed out at Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., the House Intelligence Committee chairman, by accusing him of treason and demanding that he be removed from office.

In a pair of tweets on Sunday, Trump suggested that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Rep. Adam Schiff, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, were both guilty of treason.

Mr Trump has attacked Mr Schiff for his characterisation of a call the US President held with Mr Zelensky and he has said, without evidence, that Mr Schiff helped draft a whistle-blower complaint at the heart of the inquiry.

Trump has described his phone call as "perfect", and criticized Schiff for "illegally" misrepresenting him to Congress.

He also complimented White House Counsel Pat Cipollone for his recent letter to Pelosi, characterizing it as a good outline of what a fair inquiry process should be in this case.

He told the president of Ukraine, "There's a lot of talk about Biden's son, that Biden stopped the prosecution, and a lot of people want to find out about that so whatever you can do with the Attorney General would be great", referring to former Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko and his dropped investigation into Burisma Holdings, a company democratic candidate Joe Biden's son worked for.

The complaint was declassified last month, and the White House released a memo about the call that appeared to corroborate it.

"Nancy Pelosi knew of the total many Shifty Adam Schiff lies and big frauds perpetrated upon Congress and the American of us, within the abolish of a wrong speech knowingly delivered as a ruthless con, and the unlawful meetings with a extremely partisan "Whistleblower" & lawyer", the president wrote on Twitter unhurried Sunday.

"I mutter which ability that they, alongside with all of these that evilly "Colluded" with them, have to all be right this moment Impeached!", Trump concluded.

The Republican president has said, without evidence, that Schiff helped draft the complaint, and that the effort was "meant to be at least part in parody".

Schiff said last month that the whistleblower has agreed to testify before Congress, and said the testimony is expected "very soon" once security measures are in place to protect his or her identity.
