US President Donald Trump has demanded to meet with the whistleblower who accused him of pressuring Kiev for political gain, as well as with the actual alleged source that passed the information presented in the Ukraine complaint.
With the Ukrainegate scandal gathering pace, Trump has launched another scathing attack at one of its main peddlers, House Intel Committee chair Adam Schiff, saying that he wants to see the Democratic Senator tried for treason for his parody interpretation of Trump’s call with Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky.
“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,” Trump wrote as he went on a Twitter tirade on Sunday.
Doubling down on his call for Schiff to face legal repercussions for “lying to Congress,” Trump has made a fresh demand, arguing that he, “like every American,” has the right to meet his accuser, referring to the whistleblower behind the “urgent concern” compliant, that set the current impeachment inquiry in motion.
