President Donald Trump on Friday threatened to sue the Chair of the House Intelligence Committee for fraud during a rant against the impeachment inquiry.
Trump made multiple inaccuracies during his rant, denying facts that had been admitted by himself, acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney and defense attorney Rudy Giuliani.
"Democrats just announced that they no longer want the Whistleblower to testify. But everything was about the Whistleblower (they no longer want the second Whistleblower either), which they don’t want because the account of my call bore NO RELATIONSHIP to the call itself ....The entire Impeachment Scam was based on my perfect Ukrainian call, and the Whistleblowers account of that call, which turned out to be false (a fraud?)," Trump argued.
In reality, the whistleblower has been irrelevant since Trump, Mulvaney and Giulaini all confessed that the complaint was correct.
"Once I released the actual call, their entire case fell apart," Trump falsely claimed, as the rough transcript of the call confirmed the allegations.
"The Democrats must end this Scam now," Trump pleaded.
He then went after Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), who chairs the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.
"My lawyers should sue the Democrats and Shifty Adam Schiff for fraud," Trump posted.
