Trump is so afraid of impeachment that he is calling on House Intelligence Committee chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) to resign and be investigated.
Rep. Adam Schiff totally made up my conversation with Ukraine President and read it to Congress and Millions. He must resign and be investigated. He has been doing this for two years. He is a sick man!

Trump’s tweet came on the same day that it was announced that Rep. Schiff would be taking the lead on the Trump impeachment investigation. The president’s demand comes less than two days after he proclaimed that Nancy Pelosi is no longer the Speaker of the House.
Donald Trump has never been held accountable for anything in his life. His father’s money meant that people turned a blind eye to his behavior or they were bought off.
Trump has lived in his own little world where he was the all-powerful decision-maker. Trump and his Republican allies have already started to smear Rep. Schiff. Since they can’t defend the president’s behavior, Republicans are going to attack the man who is leading the investigation.
Rep. Schiff isn’t going to resign, or be investigated, but what the former prosecutor will do get the facts and conduct a comprehensive investigation in Trump’s shakedown of Ukraine for dirt on Joe Biden.
