Congressman and leading manager in the Trump impeachment trial Adam Schiff said that the US president’s recent tirade against him and other Democrats on Twitter was intended as a threat.
“I think it was intended to be”, Schiff said during NBC’s “Meet the Press” programme.
On Sunday, the president lashed out at Democrats and Adam Schiff, who was among Trump’s most prominent accusers during the impeachment inquiry into his alleged abuse of power, calling the congressman a “corrupt politician” and “a very sick man”, suggesting that he “has not paid the price, yet” for his perceived wrongdoings.
Shifty Adam Schiff is a CORRUPT POLITICIAN, and probably a very sick man. He has not paid the price, yet, for what he has done to our Country!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 26, 2020
“The Impeachment Hoax is a massive election interference the likes of which has never been seen before. In just two hours the Radical Left, Do Nothing Democrats have seen their phony case absolutely shredded. Shifty is now exposed for illegally making up my phone call, & more!” Trump added.
