Like every American, I deserve to meet my accuser, especially when this accuser, the so-called “Whistleblower,” represented a perfect conversation with a foreign leader in a totally inaccurate and fraudulent way. Then Schiff made up what I actually said by lying to Congress……— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 29, 2019
His lies were made in perhaps the most blatant and sinister manner ever seen in the great Chamber. 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…..— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 29, 2019
….In addition, I want to meet not only my accuser, who presented SECOND & THIRD HAND INFORMATION, but also the person who illegally gave this information, which was largely incorrect, to the “Whistleblower.” Was this person SPYING on the U.S. President? Big Consequences!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 29, 2019

This theme of Schiff lying in his opening statement before testimony from Maguire first appeared on President Trump’s Twitter feed, on Friday.
Shorn of its rambling character and in not so many words this is the essence of what the President communicates.
We’ve been very good to your country, very good, no other country has done as much as we have, but you know what I don’t see much reciprocity here. I hear what you want I have a favor, I want from you though and I’m gonna say this only seven times so you better listen good. I want you to make up dirt on my political opponent understand lots of it on this and on that. I’m gonna put you in touch with people and not just any people, I’m gonna put you in touch with Attorney General of the United States. My Attorney General, Bill Barr, he’s got the whole weight of the America law enforcement behind and I’m put you in touch with Rudy you’re gonna love him trust me. You know what I’m asking and so I’m only gonna say this a few more times in a few more ways. And by the way don’t call me again. I’ll call you when you’ve done what I asked.
This is in sum and character what the President was trying to communicate with the President of Ukraine.Part of Schiff’s opening statement 9/26/19.
It should be noted that prior to his quoted statement Schiff said, “well it reads like a classic organized crime shakedown.”
The Wall Street Journal reported that after Congressional Republicans on the Committee expressed displeasure over Schiff’s characterization of President Trump’s words, Schiff said, “meant to be at least, part in parody.”
“Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats can’t put down the Impeachment match. They know they couldn’t beat him in 2016 against Hillary Clinton, and they’re increasingly aware of the fact that they won’t win against him in 2020, and Impeachment is the only tool they have to get….— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 30, 2019
….rid of Donald J. Trump – And the Democrats don’t care if they burn down and destroy this nation in the process. I have never seen the Evangelical Christians more angry over any issue than this attempt to illegitimately remove this President from office, overturn the 2016….— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 30, 2019
….Election, and negate the votes of millions of Evangelicals in the process. They know the only Impeachable offense that President Trump has committed was beating Hillary Clinton in 2016. That’s the unpardonable sin for which the Democrats will never forgive him…..— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 30, 2019
….If the Democrats are successful in removing the President from office (which they will never be), it will cause a Civil War like fracture in this Nation from which our Country will never heal.” Pastor Robert Jeffress, @FoxNews— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 30, 2019
If the Democrats are successful in removing the President from office (which they will never be), it will cause a Civil War like fracture in this Nation from which our Country will never heal.
I don’t really have a lot to say about this tweet, other than, make no mistake, in my opinion, the sitting President is warning the Democrats, and those non-democrats alike that if they legally and Constitutionally remove him from office, there will be Civil War.
He’s doing this hiding behind a quote from someone else, but he’s still supportive.
It is most likely a hollow empty threat, as most of his threats are, however, he is the sitting President.

Real Clear Politics has the President’s job approval average at 44.4 percent approve while 52.4 percent disapprove.
A CBS News Poll released Sunday show that 55 percent approve of the impeachment inquiry into President Trump, while 45 percent disapprove.
According to the article the approval number is highest among Democrats, that approve of the action.
The Fakers Tweets.
The Fake Whistleblower complaint is not holding up. It is mostly about the call to the Ukrainian President which, in the name of transparency, I immediately released to Congress & the public. The Whistleblower knew almost nothing, its 2ND HAND description of the call is a fraud!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 30, 2019
Rep. Adam Schiff illegally made up a FAKE & terrible statement, pretended it to be mine as the most important part of my call to the Ukrainian President, and read it aloud to Congress and the American people. It bore NO relationship to what I said on the call. Arrest for Treason?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 30, 2019
Schiff’s words at most were hyperbole not illegal, and certainly not Treasonous in any way.
If hyperbole or embellishments or exaggerations were Treasonous, President Trump would have been arrested before he was sworn in, just based on tweets alone.
The Predictable tweets.
Again, the President of Ukraine said there was NO (ZERO) PRESSURE PUT ON HIM BY ME. Case closed!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 30, 2019
WHO CHANGED THE LONG STANDING WHISTLEBLOWER RULES JUST BEFORE SUBMITTAL OF THE FAKE WHISTLEBLOWER REPORT? DRAIN THE SWAMP!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 30, 2019
The above predictable ALL CAPS tweets is based on a Federalist article.
WOW, they got caught. End the Witch Hunt now! https://t.co/A5k3u9Rg3D— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 28, 2019
According to the Federalist and other Conservative media outlets, the ICIG, who was appointed by President Trump, changed the Whistleblower Complaint form, in order to enable hearsay to be allowed.
The Daily Beast reported that the smoking gun is a change that did take place in August of 2019, on the 401 form.
A question on the form explicitly anticipates tips based on secondhand information, and asks the whistleblower to check a box: “I have direct and personal knowledge,” or, “I heard about it from others.” The Federalist used a screenshot of that field to illustrate its story.The Daily Beast.
They continue to explain that what the Federalist article leaves out is that there was a nearly identical field gracing Form 401 since May of 2018.
What the article didn’t mention or screenshot is a nearly identical field gracing Form 401 since at least May 2018, making it impossible that it was added as an easement for Trump’s whistleblower. The major difference in the fields is that the old form includes three options instead of two, subdividing secondhand sources into outside source and “other employees.”The Daily Beast.
It’s also noted that hearsay has always been allowed when filing a “urgent” complaint.
“President Trump’s Job Approval Numbers have just reached the highest level since his Inauguration, around 50%, and you can add to that many votes from voters that don’t talk about their vote.

Zelensky in part: we are almost ready to buy more Javelins from the United· States for defense purposes.
Trump in part: I would like you to do us a favor though…
Trump in part: The other thing, There’s a lot of talk about Biden’s son, that Biden stopped the prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about that so whatever you can do with the Attorney General would be great.

Very simple! I was looking for Corruption and also why Germany, France and others in the European Union don’t do more for Ukraine. Why is it always the USA that does so much and puts up so much money for Ukraine and other countries? By the way, the Bidens were corrupt!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 30, 2019
The both predictable and fakers tweet.
The Fake News Media wants to stay as far away as possible from the Ukraine and China deals made by the Bidens. A Corrupt Media is so bad for our Country! In actuality, the Media may be even more Corrupt than the Bidens, which is hard to do!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 30, 2019
