President Donald Trump said he wants to meet the whistleblower who filed a complaint regarding his telephone conversation with the President of Ukraine, which is now the center of an impeachment inquiry.
Trump also attacked the person who provided information to the whistleblower, accused House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) of “fraud and treason,” and warned of “big consequences.”
The President expressed his condemnations against his accusers and Rep. Schiff in a series of tweets on Sunday,
Trump wrote, “Like every American, I deserve to meet my accuser, especially when this accuser, the so-called ‘Whistleblower,’ represented a perfect conversation with a foreign leader in a totally inaccurate and fraudulent way. Then Schiff made up what I actually said by lying to Congress.”
He continued, “His lies were made in perhaps the most blatant and sinister manner ever seen in the great Chamber. He wrote down and read terrible things, then said it was from the mouth of the President of the United States. I want Schiff questioned at the highest level for Fraud & Treason…..”
