President Donald Trump on Sunday, Oct. 6, called for the impeachment of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), over their handling of the whistleblower inquiry.
The president said Pelosi was aware of Schiff ‘s lies and his “massive frauds perpetrated upon Congress and the American people.” He pointed to Schiff’s “parody” speech in Congress, which Pelosi defended and called it “fair.”
“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,” Trump tweeted.
“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!” he added.

Last week, Trump on Thursday floated legal action against Pelosi for falsely claiming Adam Schiff used the president’s “own words” when he “read” a fabricated conversation between the president and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy during a hearing.
“Nancy Pelosi today, on @GMA, actually said that Adam Shifty Schiff didn’t fabricate my words in a major speech before Congress. She either had no idea what she was saying, in other words lost it, or she lied. Even Clinton lover @GStephanopoulos strongly called her out. Sue her?” the president wrote on Twitter.
In an interview last Wednesday with ABC News, Pelosi asserted Schiff “didn’t make it up” when he performed the fake conversation between the two world leaders during his opening statement at a committee hearing featuring Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire.

Speaking to reporters at the White House last Wednesday, President Trump slammed Schiff as a “lowlife” and demanded that he resign from Congress.
“Congressman Adam Schiff should resign for the Crime of, after reading a transcript of my conversation with the President of Ukraine (it was perfect), fraudulently fabricating a statement of the President of the United States and reading it to Congress, as though mine! He is sick!” he tweeted.
