Adam Schiff says that Trump's call with the President of Ukraine is much more damaging. than he had imagined
It's a classic shakedown crowd! & # 39; House Intel Commission Chair Adam Schiff accuses Donald Trump of acting as MAFIA in his call to the leader of Ukraine
- House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff said the rough transcript of Donald Trump's appeal to the President of Ukraine was devastating
- He said it was & # 39; typical that the framers were worried about & # 39; when they created a path for accusation
- & # 39; The notes of the call reflect a much more damaging conversation than I or many others had imagined & he said during a press conference.
- He told reporters: & # 39; What those notes reflect is a classic, Mafia-like shakedown from a foreign leader & # 39;
House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff said Wednesday that the pressure Donald Trump put on the President of Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden is typically what the designers were concerned about & # 39; when they created a path for accusation.
Schiff said prior to the White House release of a July call transcript that it would make it clear to the President that Trump had fitted the Rubicon & # 39; with appropriate behavior in the interview in which he asked the foreign government to investigate his political rival.
& # 39; The tones of the call reflect a much more damning conversation than I or many others had imagined. It was shocking at another level that the White House would publish these notes and felt that this would somehow help the president's case or case. Because what those notes reflect is a classic, Mafia-like shakedown from a foreign leader, & he said.

"They reflect a Ukrainian president who was desperately seeking American support, military support to help that country in a hot war with Putin's Russia," he said. & # 39; And at the same time, a president of the United States, who immediately after the president of Ukraine expressed a need for further weapons, told the president of Ukraine that he wanted to ask for a favor.
The Californian democrat read the president's words aloud and said: & # 39; That's how a mafia boss talks. & # 39;
Attorney General William Barr has denied any involvement in the Biden-Ukraine probe that Trump & # 39; s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani is at the forefront.
& # 39; Yet you can see what the Ministry of Justice would like this transcript to never see the light of day & # 39 ;, said Schiff during his press conference.
Schiff said that Trump's repeated references to the Attorney General were meant to indicate that he would use internal power to get what he wanted, if necessary, whether or not he continued.
He said Trump's refusal to release nearly $ 350 military aid to Ukraine
& # 39; I think we know why the help was withheld, & # 39; he said about the money and denied Trump's explanation. & # 39; But anyway, Ukraine understood exactly what was asked of him. & # 39;
House speaker Nancy Pelosi announced on Tuesday that the caucus is conducting a & # 39; formal accusation investigation & # 39; when the president starts that Schiff says he supports.
& # 39; I don't want to anticipate ourselves here. I think what we have learned, what has been admitted and now what we have seen in writing, is about as annoying as you can imagine, & he said about the investigation of allegations at his press conference. & # 39; No one is allowed to make illusions about the seriousness of what is not being disputed. & # 39;
Schiff said that Trump & # 39; s repeated references to the Attorney General were meant to indicate that he would use internal force to get what he wanted if needed
Following Pelosi's arguments one day earlier, he said that the President of the United States has betrayed his oath of office & # 39; and has undermined US national security.
& # 39; And I think that is typically the concerns of the frame makers. I think that's typical what the list makers thought was the sum and content of what could justify a president's resignation, & he said. & # 39; I do not want to underestimate the meaning of what has already been revealed. & # 39;
