President Trump unloaded on House Intel Chairman Adam Schiff Friday; labeling the top Democrat a “corrupt politician” intentionally denying Republican lawmakers “due process” in his ongoing impeachment inquiry.
“Adam Schiff is a corrupt politician. He made up a speech and he put my voice in it. He made up a speech, it had nothing to do with what I said. Adam Schiff is a corrupt politician that’s not giving us due process,” Trump told reporters before departing the White House.

Republican members of the House of Representatives will ask Intel Chair Adam Schiff to testify in his ongoing impeachment inquiry; labeling the top Democrat a “fact witness” due to his early involvement in the Ukraine controversy.
“House Republicans plan to call Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff as one of their first witnesses in the impeachment inquiry against President Trump following the adoption of formal rules for the investigation, claiming he is a ‘fact witness’ due to his office’s early involvement with the whistleblower whose complaint sparked the proceedings,” reports Fox News.
“A source familiar with Republicans’ strategy moving forward in the impeachment inquiry confirmed to Fox News on Monday that GOP members plan to call Schiff, D-Calif., for questioning — even if they are unlikely to succeed,” adds Fox.
