Trump issues ugly threat to arrest Adam Schiff for treason as impeachment gains momentum

President Donald Trump escalated his attacks on Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) as impeachment gained momentum.

Polls showed a sharp uptick in public support for impeachment as a series of bombshell revelations showed Trump pressured Ukraine to cook up damaging campaign information against Joe Biden.

The president has attacked a whistleblower who revealed Trump’s call with the Ukrainian president, and he has complained that Schiff, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, had paraphrased that call during a hearing last week.

“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?”

Congress schooled in the Constitution: Impeachment hearing was less about the answers than about the questions

Published

The Judiciary Hearing Probably Changed No Minds, But, Yes, the Democrats Had the Better Questions

The opening of the new round of impeachment inquiries before the House Judiciary Committee was less about the answers than about the questions.

If you were a Democrat, you asked questions that prompted the constitutional scholars present to pin the available evidence about Team Trump to a rogue plot to trade Ukrainian recognition and military aid for Donald Trump’s personal political gain.

If you were a Republican, you asked about anything else, from historical precedents about elapsed time, about the meaning of bribery in the 18th Century, about non-existent testimony about Joe and Hunter Biden.
