Trump is so scared of House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) that he accused him of a crime and demanded that he be removed from office.
Trump cuddled with Sean Hannity and said about Schiff, “He’s a bad guy, because I mean he knew he was lying, and for a year and a half he would just go on and lie and lie and leak and call up CNN and others. You know, I watch him, so sanctimonious and gets on says we want to talk about Russia. He knew it was a lie. He would get in the back room with his friends in the Democrat Party and they would laugh like hell at what they were doing, and he knew it was a lie, and therefore you could say in one way it’s a crime what he did, because he was giving, making horrible statements that he knew were false, and frankly, I heard they should force him off the committee or off the committee chair. He should be forced out of office. He is a disgrace to our country.”

Trump fears Adam Schiff
Trump’s comments on Adam Schiff are part of a recurring pattern of behavior. Trump tries to destroy the credibility of anyone who can investigate him or harm him. Trump did it with James Comey and Andrew McCabe. He did it with Robert Mueller. He did it Michael Cohen, and now that he thinks he has the Mueller report buried, he is going after Adam Schiff.
Donald Trump is scared of Adam Schiff, and his claims of crimes that should force Rep. Schiff out of office is the latest example of Trump projection.
Adam Schiff isn’t going anywhere. He will get the Mueller report, and he will reveal the truth about Trump and Russia.
